Amongst cosmological objects, black holes – regions in space where the gravitational force is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape – have a special place, evoking a sense of mystery and awe for physicists and ordinary people alike. This piece explores ideas from theoretical physics from the perspective of an ordinary person trying to find a greater engagement with the universe. As concepts from astrophysics intertwine with personal narratives exploring love, loss, mortality, experiential limits, and the bodies we live in, the piece examines our thirst for knowledge, our hunger for experience, and how the two combine to create our understanding of the cosmos we inhabit.
