How spacetime tunnels out from the center of a black hole is one thing I can not visualize in a 3D universe. That space is drawn into a black hole faster than the speed of light and that a black hole slowly evaporates by some process like Hawking radiation or by Donuel spacetime radiation is easy to conceive of compared to space 'tunneling'.

That space is being generated in a black hole and goes 'somewhere' seems to take a more dimensional mind's eye than mine. Or as most people might rightly think, 'thats where the idea breaks down and falls apart'. But everything is not intuitive. Some scientists prefer the 'unintuitive' because they get more grants whether they prove a theory or not.

Soon we will be able to measure the horizon of the visible horizon of space with infrared telescopes but to take a measuement inside a black hole in our own back yard is like reaching the unreachable star.
