The basic idea of a black hole is simple. Imagine tossing a ball into the air. It goes up to a certain height, and then back down. If you toss the ball faster, the ball rises higher, but it still eventually falls. Now suppose you could toss the ball as fast as you like. Could you toss the ball so fast it doesn’t fall back down?

The ball would dissolve into nothingness at that speed…i know…I’m missing the point but my limited yet mathematical mind does not allow any other direction as of present…^~^…merow
