It actually does not mean anything. You have removed all sources of matter, you then can't claim to have a source for your gravitation linguistically by saying 'outside a body' when there isn't matter (a body) present to attach your mass to. <br /><br /> "Black holes were first discovered as purely mathematical solutions of Einstein's field equations. This solution the Schwarzchild black hole, is a non-linear solution of the Einstein equations of General Relativity. It contains no matter, and exists forever in an asymptotically flat space-time."<br />Dictionary of Geophysics, Astrophysics, and Astronomy: Edited by Richard A.
