I wrote about something along these lines back in the G plus days. My thought was black holes could act not simply as particle accelerators, but as fusion generators, fusing heavier elements beyond iron an sending them into the cosmos. Primarily to account for amount of heavy elements seeded throughout the universe which ro me seemed the bright and ultra brief flashes of super novii didn’t make enough of.
Given the proliferation of black holes and the density of heavy elements even here, though rare, it was plausible in my mind the only other place that had the same energies as the hearts of stars are the edges of feeding black holes.

Nice. Now I have new name for ‘conveying’. Frame dragging. I like it. It holds water. Thanks for updates. :sunglasses:
