To argue on that that there is a black hole or not in general is ridiculous. Whether as ridiculously as well as to argue on that there is an absolute emptiness or not.

And a matter have forgotten to name absolute pressure Believe, in space always there will be a corner with a Small slice of absolute emptiness. Unit and zero pressure and vacuum. Here to you and all philosophy. That’s all life. Simply.
