The event horizon of a black hole is the point beyond which nothing can escape. There are Event Horizon Telescopes, (EHTs) which actually explore these points in space. In mathematics an imaginary number is something which can be postulated and written down, but which has no actual existence say like the square root of -1. There are certain cosmological concepts that are not in the realm of understanding or even imagination. Remember Henry Darger's In the Realms of the Unreal? Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (2014) tried to conceive of a space ship nearing the event horizon of a black hole, Gargantua, but what’s inside? There are one-celled creatures like the xenophyophores that inhabit the Mariana Trench 36,201 feet underwater, a depth greater than Mt. Everest turned upside down. The amount of water pressure at such a depth and the consequent biology of organisms that survive in these waters also defies belief. Does the inside of the Large Hadron Collider which reproduces the conditions in which the first particle of matter, the Boson, were formed provide any insight into the world beyond worlds? Consider the conceptual leap necessary to imagine a craft which could cross an event horizon and explore Messier 87 the galaxy in the constellation Virgo which has its own enormous black hole.
