Relativity and Cosmology


The Fictitious 'interior' of Schwarzschild Spacetime (And a Couple of Other Fallacies)

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers

All arguments for the black hole are based upon the same fundamental idea in that they conceive of a region that in actual fact does not exist. This fictitious region the relativists call the 'interior', i.e. the region they think is contained by their a spherically symmetric surface they call the 'event horizon'. But there is no such region. The notion comes from a failure to recognise that the centre of spherical symmetry of the problem at hand is not located where they think it is, at their r = 0. I shall discuss this now in more detail.
