Various line-elements purporting different types of blackhole universes have been advanced by cosmologists but a means by which therequired infinite set of equivalent metrics can be generated has evaded them.Without such a means the theory of black holes is not only incomplete but alsoill-posed. Notwithstanding, the mathematical form by which the infinite set ofequivalent metrics is generated was first revealed in 2005, from other quartersand it has in turn revealed significant properties of black hole universeswhich cosmology has not realised. The general metric ground-form from which theinfinite set of equivalent ‘black hole’ metrics can be generated is presentedherein and its consequences explored.
