    Except that most galaxies are not "spirals". Many are hybrids and not full spirals.

    Now if a simple demonstration would explain how the mass got in the center in the first place, yet simultaneously threw mass out like that, we`d be all set.

    this doesn`t explain anything and only raises more questions...

    where did the ball come from? where is it going? why is it being used to "explain" why galaxies look like this? if i put a Falafel in the oven now and take it out a week from now, how stupid am I?

    there are questions that the world needs answers to.

    Does every sponge ball has a black hole at it`s centre?
