    Hey fellow people, does anybody happen to know what is behind a black hole or is it the same hole you would "see" in the front?

    Black holes are spherical. A sphere has an infinite number of symmetries.
    "Front" and "back" have no meaning in relation to a black hole.
    If your question is "What's inside a black hole?", then nobody really knows.
    There is however, a huge body of fascinating speculation and thought on the matter.


    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.

    no no i just wanted to know if there was a back, like if i went behind it would the gravity pull me to the side of the hole that is doing the sucking. I need to get more into shapes to understand how things like this work.

    Look at it this way. What's behind the earth? That doesn't make any sense because you don't know which direction is being viewed, nor does earth have an obvious front or back. That's because it's a sphere, and so too is a BH.
