    This online article by published by Physicist George Chapline Jr at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Nobel laureate Robert Laughlin of Stanford Universityasks if Black Holes actually exist or if they are really giant dark energy stars

    Sure enough, in place of black holes their analysis predicts a
    phase transition that creates a thin quantum critical shell. The
    size of this shell is determined by the star's mass and, crucially,
    does not contain a space-time singularity. Instead, the shell contains
    a vacuum, just like the energy-containing vacuum of free space. As the
    star's mass collapses through the shell, it is converted to energy that
    contributes to the energy of the vacuum.

    "We really don't have proof that black holes exist," he says. "This is a
    very interesting alternative." The most intriguing fallout from this idea
    has to do with the strength of the vacuum energy inside the dark energy star.
    This energy is related to the star's size, and for a star as big as our universe
    the calculated vacuum energy inside its shell matches the value of dark energy
    seen in the universe today. "It's like we are living inside a giant dark energy
    star," Chapline says. There is, of course, no explanation yet for how a
    universe-sized star could come into being.

    Is it possible that the gravitons in the black hole fusion and change into a higher frequency that normal matter does not react with?

    Are black holes really just massive dark energy stars?

    I have asked that question to myself many times before and always turned up with a NO.

    Dark energy is commonly described as the force that is pulling our universe apart, separating entire galaxies from one another. It is basically the opposite of gravity. Seeing as black holes contain MASSIVE amounts of gravity, the theory that they are stars composed of dark energy is likely incorrect. However, dark matter may be applicable in this situation. In fact, some theories suggest that supermassive black holes could form from dark matter.

    Very good question!
