I can not find an article that says "Things fall down".This message is another indication for your imagination.
Nobody would write such an article because anyone old enough to learn to read already knows that things fall down.
There are no "free objects" around the SMBH that are waiting to be eaten.
Any object there MUST orbit around the SMBH.
Therefore, nothing really falls.
It is just an issue of spiraling inwards or outwards - in orbital system.
Mars gave us the key understanding points for spiraling inwards & outwards.
It is your obligation to use those points in the S2 - SMBH as this is an orbital system.
