Stuart, this has nothing to do with this post.
Do you know if there are such things as the opposite of black holes, which instead of sucking everything inwards, hurl everything outwards?

See white holes.

Thanks. I don’t think the name ‘white hole’ makes much sense, and in particular ‘hole’, considering matter would be repelled and not sucked in, as with a black ‘hole’.

black hole and white hole are equally confusing names for the phenomenon . it is just as easy for me to imagine a hole hurling stuff outwards like a hole in a bike tire or a dam , the stuff in that case flies out of the hole . but yes 3 dimensional holes can twist up your mind if you think about them too much hehe
