Weird physics at the edges of black holes may help resolve lingering 'Hubble trouble

Mass is a shrinking of space and a slowing of time.
Pure common sense makes that brain-dead obvious.
That fits exactly with what we observe and measure.

'Warp' is a misguided and misleading term that indicates confusion.

If space around a black hole weren't shrunken there would be a traffic jam of matter caught in the molassas of time dilation/relative-slowing.

We would see lots of stuff caught/dragging in time dilation molassas all over, everywhere there's mass

Light [& matter] can get through the proximity of an event horizon because because there's proportionately exactly as much space shrinkage as there is time slowing.
Light makes exactly the same [external frame] geometric progress from any viewpoint.

"Because of the extreme warping of time around a black hole, we can also never hope to see the event horizon itself."

Light that doesn't actually cross the event horizon moves right back out to us just fine (maybe redirected from our frame of reference) because of the reduced space of a mass field.

Gravity fields and gravity waves penetrate event horizons. We know that from the orbits of black holes orbiting other black holes and other massive objects. They obey the geometric idealization of acting on distant masses as if their mass is concentrated at a point at their exact center. The event horizon defines a boundary in space, a sphere where no light or slower particles can escape. I don't see how a spherical boundary with escape velocity C would repel dark energy or affect it's field or propagation in any way.

I see an obvious error in the article: "Black holes are born from the idea of an infinite amount of mass concentrated in an infinitesimally small space, known as a singularity."

A black hole never has "infinite amount of mass". Maybe(?) infinite density but clearly the mass is finite and even possibly very small.
