New Imaging of the Active Core of Galaxy M87 Invalidates Black Hole Theory

You may have seen this image shown below which was produced by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) consortium showing the active core of Galaxy M87, that NASA and the EHT consortium were actively circulating some years ago proclaiming proof of having imaged a black hole.  The ring image with its dark interior, which has a diameter of ~40 µas was said to have a size consistent with a black hole event horizon size that would be produced by a supermassive core of 6 billion solar masses, the mass determined for that of M87.

Recently, on July 1 of 2022, a Japanese consortium lead by Makoto Miyoshi, et al. published a paper in the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ 933: 36 (42pp) presented a reconstruction of by adding in new data from other submillimeter antennae array operating at 230 GHz.  The image they obtained an image shows instead an unresolved spherical core and knot ejection; see below.  The conclusion is that the EHT image was seriously flawed because they did not include sufficient telescope data in their analysis.

Japanese consortium image shows the central supermassive core (C),
a nearby knot ejection (K) and a distal west component (W).

What is interesting is that the unresolved core image (C) has a diameter of just 15 µas, fitting well within the 40 µas EHT ring shown above and indicating that this cannot be a black hole, but rather must be a supermassive mother star.  For, radiation is seen to be emerging from a region far smaller than the proclaimed event horizon.  The core radiation cannot be due to a confined beam directed exactly towards our Galaxy since obviously the beamed ejections while possibly angled in our direction, are directed more in the plane of the sky: K towards the northwest (upper right) and the earlier ejection W towards the southwest (lower right).  Moreover M87’s core has over time been ejecting a macroscopic radio jet angled to the northwest, which Miyoshi, et al. have also imaged in their reevaluation study; see below.

Miyoshi, et al. show that the flawed EHT ring mage is a distortion of the emission coming from the core and knot components, which becomes properly resolved once additional telescope data is added in.  Thus the conclusion of EHT consortium that they have imaged a black hole is disproven.  Related to this is the flawed claim that Sgr A* at the center of our own galaxy is a black hole; see our earlier posting about this.

All of the above findings strengthen the claim of the subquantum kinetics physics methodology that black holes do not exist.  For an updated edition of the Subquantum Kinetics book (5th edition, now in pdf format) please visit our book and video store or go to this link:

      Hi Nic W,

      Paul passed away on 19 December 2022. The people (eg. Model G Vortical Motion Group, and other friends and colleagues of Dr Paul LaViolette), who have worked with him over the last 5 years, are continuing his work at the Starburst Foundation, and maintaining his websites: and .

      As regards your question, yes, it looks like they are making progress with hot Fusion power (see [1]). So-called free energy/over unity energy, in my opinion, is cheaper and cleaner. Hot fusion relies on large corporations/governments to fund it and is difficult to do. They’ve been trying to invent/discover it, since the 1940s and a lot of money has gone into it. Free energy is much cheaper and easier to produce, also, cleaner.

      [1]: “On December 5, a team at LLNL’s National Ignition Facility (NIF) conducted the first controlled fusion experiment in history to reach this milestone, also known as scientific energy breakeven, meaning it produced more energy from fusion than the laser energy used to drive it. This historic, first-of-its kind achievement will provide unprecedented capability to support NNSA’s Stockpile Stewardship Program and will provide invaluable insights into the prospects of clean fusion energy, which would be a game-changer for efforts to achieve President Biden’s goal of a net-zero carbon economy.” @ Panel Discussion: Nuclear Fusion Breakthrough

      Best regards,

    I would not be surprised if black holes don’t exist.

    But I have another question and issue I would like to bring up. I do realize that a certain amount of Galaxies we observe have clearly, obviously active and energetic Galactic Cores, which in those galaxies must be sending out galactic super waves.

    But when we look at the Earth and our solar system and teh changes happening in same, it is clear that a superwave is not causing it. More and more, I’m leaning towards Ben Davidson’s (of Suspicious Observers) theory that instead what is happening is that we are gradually moving into the “Galactic Current Sheet” and thus why we are seeing a gradual, but increasing ramp up in changes on the Earth, in the Sun, and in the Solar system.

    It may be that our Galactic Core will be exploding in the near future, but it also seems clear that we don’t even need it, to see catastrophic changes. Just moving into these more EM charged fields with their greater dust concentrations, seems to be enough to destabilize systems here.

    What do you think about the Galactic Current Sheet theory?
