Living on the accretion disk of the Great Existential Black Hole can be dangerous and funny and tragic! The accretion disk is a very thin plane spiraling, spinning faster and faster as the inner edge disappears into the black hole. It is where the black hole attracts more matter with its massive gravitational force. There are black holes at the center of almost every galaxy and there are also accretion disks and their existential black holes in most peoples' lives. Zones where actions, thoughts and emotions can easily be sucked into the great black hole and disappear. We have all been there at one time in our lives - In a place where we can see everything that is spiraling in from the space around and everything that is disappearing into the void ... the other dimension, but we can't do a damn thing about it - it is what it is! Although most people have spent time on the disk of the Existential Black Hole, I contend, in all honesty, most of my life seems to have been spent there. I see it like a badly edited B-movie. Existential sounds lofty and academic but it is not highly philosophical, it is much more mundane and maybe even common sense. It is basically - things are what they are; things exist; shit happens.

Accretion disks in compact stellar systems containing white dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes are the principal laboratory for understanding the role of accretion disks in a wide variety of environments from proto-stars to quasars. Recent work on disk instabilities and dynamics has given a new theoretical framework with which

With the advent of space observatories and modern developments in ground based astronomy and concurrent progress in the theoretical understanding of these observations it has become clear that accretion of material on to compact objects is an ubiquitous mechanism powering very diverse astrophysical sources ranging in size and luminosity by
