2022-01-27: How Does Gravity Escape A Black Hole?

  • 07:33: ... if gravity is really mediated by virtual gravitons, then those gravitons don’t emerge from the location of the singularity, ...
  • 07:44: The gravitational field around the black hole is already abuzz with virtual gravitons.
  • 08:25: But if we’re describing the gravitational field as being built up by virtual gravitons then the event horizon is no barrier at all.
  • 10:06: ... gravity is communicated by the curvature of spacetime or by virtual gravitons, we maintain a causal connection to the mass that generated that ...
