Does anyone know if 2 test electrical charges on opposite ends of a black hole actually feel each other? If I am not mistaken, many physicists believe the electromagnetic and gravitational forces to be independent. Which would mean that it should not have any effect. But if no information can pass by the event horizon of a black hole without getting either lost or infinitely trapped in warped time, then the 2 test charges should not feel each other. A contradiction?
Also, how can Hawking radiation exist? He theorises that it results from particle-antiparticle pairs which flit out of empty space due to quantum mechanics, being torn apart at the event horizon. This would result in the creation of a particle or antiparticle, which would otherwise have annihilated the other. The problem is that the black hole should have no bias as to whether it would be sucking in a particle or antiparticle, so the black hole would still have the same amount of ‘zero’ energy. All that would have happened is that statistically speaking, the particles and antiparticles would have swapped partners, but all of the same weight.
