Perhaps there is some other phenomenon, unknown to 20th century
astronomers because it doesn't emit jets of x-rays, that is not a black
hole but is a rift between universes where energy is sucked out of one
universe and emerges as a White Fountain in the other.>>

Although I do not have my books at hand, I recall that someone refers to the
"black chasm" at the heart of the sun, and that there were other, similar
references.  Sounds pretty close to "black hole" to me.

One possibility is an Einstein-Rosenburg bridge.  These scientists theorized
that a black hole with a ring (rather than point) singularity could have at
its center a tube of bent space time that would pass "elsewhere."  Still,
all of Wolfe's imagery goes along with the black hole concept.  In
particular, there was a popular theory (which may well have been discredited
by now) that quasars, with their enourmous energy output and unknown
genesis, were the outpourings of black holes in other universes.  This
theory seems to fit well with Wolfe's conception.
