Comment: Are new singularities created around a black hole? (Score 1) 137

by John Stock (#49156983) Attached to: 12-Billion-Solar-Mass Black Hole Discovered
I assume the pressure and densities of matter around a black hole's accretion disk are at least as high as those in the center of stars that form into black holes. So would it be right to conclude that new singularities are created around an active black hole's accretion disk all the time?
