Here's the text from the website describing the black hole above:
"This artist's impression shows the thick dust torus that astronomers believe surrounds supermassive black holes and their accretion discs, like the one harboured in the nucleus of the spiral galaxy NGC 4388. When the torus is seen `edge-on’ as in this case, the visible light emitted by the accretion disc is partially blocked. However, the sharp X-ray and gamma-ray eyes of XMM-Newton and Integral can peer through the thick dust and see how the energy released by the accretion disc interacts with and is absorbed by the torus.

The Simple Explanation suggests that these toroidal forces energetically affect all manifestations of our universe--not just the very large energy centers of supermassive black holes. From an article here at the Simple Explanation:
The building blocks of our physical universe are tiny quantum clouds shaped like toroids. These tiny toroids combine at the microscopic level to form all of the variety we see around us. Larger toroidal forces shape the larger cosmological features of our universe
Imagine the image above is not of a supermassive black hole, but a subatomic particle. How might these protoforces affect the mass and energy of neighboring space? Can you see the energetic expressions of the toroidal shape in the photos below of Quantum Clouds?

Can you see the gamma ray bubbles' resemblance to the cross-section of the torus below? You may also notice that the white line I call the "pole" of the toroid, which is the only straight line able to pass through a singularity at the center of the torus shape, is also the plane of the Milky Way in the image above.
