@Idaho Spud

I guess it depends on how far past the decimal you go, or how into math someone is? This is how it is commonly suppose to be interpreted by the common Joe.

3(3.14 - 0.14) = 9

Interesting clock Edward.  However, being the nit-picker I am, it seems to me the number at the 9s place is really 9.00477796077..........

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks. Makes more sense if it can be either particle. All the examples I was reading were showing the positive particle left behind. Maybe was just convenient, or I was reading it wrong. Either way , I thank you very much. I appreciate it. Peace and long life.

The virtual particle pairs are a matter particle and an antimatter particle. Whichever is randomly closer to the event horizon gets swallowed and the other one becomes a real particle which escapes.

Hey science nerds out there. I enjoy reading about quantam mechanics, even though I understand maybe 1% of 1% of what I read. It makes my brain melt and leak out my ears. Anyway, maybe one of you guys can explain Hawking radiation to me. As I understand, when a virtual pair of particles are created near a black hole, before annihilation can take place, one falls into the black hole, while the other remains. True? And the one left is the positive particle, therefore wouldn't that cause a net positive sum value to the universe? Wouldn't that cancel out dark energy to some extent?  I'm really having a hard time understanding this, and my brain is melting faster than usual. Thanks for any input. Peace.
