-Commonly regarded as the point of insection of any object compressed to within its Schwarzschild radius, at which it begins to collaps inward...

-but more generally a condition in which an equation governing a physical law is pushed to an extreame not possible according to itself...

...essentially a physical manifestation of an asymptote or a infinite limit, solved for any complex equation...

-for instance at some point any gravity related law can be manipulated to result in, oh say, a non-finite mass or in-constant time...

---Let me try and simplify, mathamatically the sum of an infitinte series can be infinite, physically it cannot, yet any physical equation can be integrated into a form where it can yeild similar results...

uhh, let me try again........

-the sum of all mass in the universe is infinite, not too hard to accept

-the sum of that infinite mass can be confined within a finite space, can't quite wrap your brain around it conceptually, so we call it a Blackhole!!

I took a combination of Theoretical-Mathamtics, and Philosophy courses my first semester, so this is how I define a Blackhole...
