The life cycles of black hole X-ray binaries has been observed for 50 years and yet it remains a mystery. I will introduce and explain the many different features that black hole X-ray binaries show and will highlight how little we understand to this day. I will then introduce and show the results of my own paradigm to try to explain two of its major components: the accretion disk and the jets. If time allows, I will also compare this view to another important element: quasi-periodic oscillations. I will discuss the agreement of my model with them, as well as if the most prominent model of the literature (Lense-Thirring precession) fits within my model.
