I’ll speak in terms of gravity instead of space-time in efforts to keeps this as simple as possible…(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: The entropy of a black hole is in direct correlation with the surface area of the event horizon?

Question: The event horizon is the limit that light has reached before being curved back to the singularity?

Question: Gravitational strength is directly proportional to the mass of an object?

Question: How then can light escape further from a singularity if mass is added to the system?

Question: Wouldn’t the increase in entropy decrease the surface area of a singularity due to the more intensive gravitational force being applied to light?

I know this is not a very well understood subject but if someone could throw a theory my way I'm all ears...
