I recently learned that areas have been found in space, by radio telescopes, in which their brightness exceeds that of our own galaxy by 100 to 1000 times. The cause is said to be gravitational collapse; i.e. – concentration of matter. Under all of the rules of common understanding, as near as I have ever been given to consider, science has been telling me that the laws of physics are universal. The “collapse” of gravity would appear to be a direct contravention of those laws, but I thought we already knew of that phenomenon, since black holes must be able to make gravity collapse to pull objects into itself. Light does not collapse, but can be "warped" in direction, but neutrinos go straight through everything. Can you straighten all this out for me, please?
Re: How can gravity collapse if it's universal?
