I have taken a more simplistic veiw on black holes. If you reach the speed of light you couldn't be seen. If we think about objects that perform this: electrons, electricity, radar. therefore if we look at an object in the very dense part of a galaxy. that has acheived enough mass that the spin at the event horizon is as fast the C. or has become energy it would appear lightless

I don't get what you are asking? Are you asking if a blackhole is made up of particles moving at light speed or if it is just a feild of energy drawing everything around it to itself? unsure.gif ph34r.gif

Really depending on what you are actually referring to, we know photons constantly travel the speed of light even though losing energy when exiting gravitational fields. As far as black holes are concerned by devouring light, Its been said that can travel near speed of light. General Relativity states nothing exceeds speed of light so assuming light cant escape black holes and that's what many scientists theorize as Event Horizon, and Singularity. I'm not exactly sure at what you are getting at but mass-less particles adhere to light velocity, but larger masses and particles I don't believe travel light velocity.
