Why haven’t black holes “eaten up” the entire universe yet?

(ORDO NEWS) — Notorious for being “gluttonous”, black holes periodically merge with each other to form an even more massive black hole.

Why, after so many billions of years, did not appear any hypermassive black holes, which would be able to break and swallow the Universe?

The answer to the question was given by the American theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind, an authoritative scientist who is one of the founders of string theory.

He mathematically proved that black holes do gain mass, but at the same time, the growth goes inward, as it were.

In our three-dimensional world, it is impossible to observe an immeasurable increase in the size of objects, but at the quantum level, fantastic changes are taking place.

All you need to understand Leonard Susskind is a computer.

Create a “black hole” folder on your desktop and put files in it. It is logical that the size of the folder will increase, it will take up more and more space on the hard drive, but will it change visually? No.

The folder will remain a folder, but its contents (hidden from the viewer until the folder is opened) will affect the amount of hard drive storage.

Similarly, black holes change the structure of the Universe at the internal level, but do not absorb it (without changing its usual appearance).

In the end, the Universe itself also does not stand still and expands with acceleration.
