Demise of Hawking's Black Holes

Much has been made of Stephen Hawking’s recent admission that the black holes envisioned by the world’s greatest Big Banger really do not exist. Still, I doubt that even his recent paper will get many to abandon an oxymoron so critical to the Big Bang and General Relativity Theories. If you have been following this at all, you know that Hawking has been backing away from the original conception for a long time. At first, these theoretical centers of the galactic nucleus would emit no light at all, and then a tiny bit was admitted, and now they might even be grey instead of black. Looks like we should give up on them entirely. Perhaps it is just a simple case of “what you see is what you get” (Figure 1).
In UCT Steve and I pointed out that the densest part of any vortex is the center. We even speculated that the nuclei of spiral galaxies might be a densely packed solid consisting mostly of aether-1 particles. Unlike regressive physicists, however, we never ascribed properties to these nuclei that were not in conformity with neomechanics. Neomechanics implies that all microcosms, no matter how dense or large or small, contain submicrocosms in motion. As such, they absorb and emit matter and motion. Light is motion, so we have always assumed that anyone who claimed that any particular microcosm cannot emit electromagnetic waves was wrong. We are glad to see Professor Hawking finally admitting his mistake.
As an aether denier, however, Hawking will never understand that light is not directly affected by gravitation because it is a wave, not a particle. Of course, considering light as a particle meant that it would be affected by gravitation, as Einstein claimed. Like other regressive physicists, Hawking long ago accepted Eddington’s 1919 discovery of the deflection of light traveling past the Sun as evidence for that. There is gravitation involved, but it is of the Sun’s atmosphere, not of the imagined light particle. The light bending discovered by Eddington was simple refraction, which will occur around any cosmic body that has an atmosphere. In the words of physicist Edward Dowdye: “Findings show that a direct interaction between the sun's gravity and the rays of star light in the empty vacuum space is yet to be observed.” And, we predict that it will never be observed, because light is motion, not matter. Einstein’s prediction that light would be bent during its passage near the Sun was a classical “Einsteinism” (right answer; wrong reason).
Black holes were expected to swallow up any matter that came near them due to “gravitational attraction.” The same thing would happen to Einstein’s light corpuscles (photons). Any theoretical movement away from those conceptions is the right move toward neomechanics and the emission of light as a wave in the aether unaffected by the push of gravity. This “breakthrough” by Hawking is akin to the movement toward Infinite Universe Theory by reformers who imagine “parallel universes” and “multiverses.”
