Astral Fountain

At one time there was astronomical speculation that on the "other side" of a Black Hole was a "White Hole," where instead of having things fall into the vortex never to be seen again, things (matter and energy) would erupt out of the white hole, having passed through the black hole's passage. Instead of the obvious "digestive" metaphor, I offered this picture with a more ethereal concept, an "astral fountain" from which issued a dazzling bloom of glowing mist and stars.
No one has ever found evidence of a "white hole" in any observations, however, and so it remains just a fanciful astronomical concept.

Prety! And I like your concept of how a White Hole might look.
