    How do you harvest it. Any machine you connect will just get sucked in. You can only absorb energy waves and those are tightly kept inside the black hole. So you'll need to be able to teleport raw energy from one place to another so that you can harvest the said raw energy. And nobody knows if teleportation is even a thing. You'll need to understand other dimensions of the world which allows you to move stuff and currently human beings are not capable of doing that. So we'll be better off blowing everyone up and hoping that a new life that forms is way more advanced.

    I feel dumb. Why can't a point rotate? How can a ring have a thickness of zero and no surface area... wouldn't that just be... not a ring? Lmao. Kurzgesagt can you make a video about the dimensions and geometry and stuff pls? :) I'll look through your uploads too but if you havent covered this already it would be so great. I love your videos. Thank you!
