1 Final render of gravitational waves along eccentric inclined orbits

There is no escape as the infinite pull of light and time fall together, collapsing reality into a cemetery for stars.

Coined by astrophysicist John Archibald Wheeler, a black hole represents the infinite gravitational pull within space-time where dimensions intersect and merge at an event horizon, the boundary of no return. The existence of black holes derives from Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity which refines the law of universal gravitation to show that particles distort spatial and time dimensions based on mass. More massive objects have a greater effect on the fabric curvature of space-time, a phenomenon known as the geodetic effect.

The warping of black holes plays host to our dimensional projections, creating a parametric methodology for the creation of a digital event horizon beyond which warping occurs. This exploration represents several interpretations of the black hole as it crosses the second and third dimensions and into haunting infinites.
