Interesting, but beyond my level of understanding...

A black hole is understandable. A white hole is supposedly a black hole with time reversed. Time reversed systems obey the same laws of physics as non-time reversed. The reason we don't generally see time-reversed systems is that systems evolve from simpler unlikely states to complex more likely states, an increase in entropy.

I think, for this reason, most scientists are skeptical that white holes exist. Although Einstein's equations work in reverse, entropy would decrease in a white hole.

Unlike black holes, there is no known mechanism where white holes could be produced.

The key word is "Known".

Like atrophy,knowledge is always increasing.

I have also speculated on the possibility of white holes,where everything is reversed,and the speed of light is the minimum speed.

Anything less is repelled back to the other "End"; A black hole.

Anything moving faster than C is invisible to us,but something at the root of existence is faster than C.; Like "Spooky action at a distance."

Dark matter may be like foam on top of a boiling stew of matter:all properties of the matter extracted,except for a memory the gravity;the "Dent" or "Scar" left behind when matter is sucked into the black hole.A "Ghost" of matter.

As soapy water goes down the drain,the foam is always on top.Dark matter may be "foamy gravity",for want of a better word.

All we can say for sure about dark matter is there is a dent in spacetime there,and something is bending it.It may be a scar left behind by a black hole.

Its only logical, if a black hole sucks it all in it has to come out somewhere else. Its just a matter of understanding what happens between going in and coming out elsewhere that we have not figured out. Even space needs to be balanced.

However, if black holes suck in everything, including light, how does X-ray manage to escape, being a wave length of light?

Theoretically,the X rays are produced by the collision of particles being sucked into the black hole.

It wasn't very convincing.
