As many of you have seen a few of my posts you will know I am not overly speculative, so I am in no way promoting this as a theory just want to know if anything along these lines has been pursued before:
I have read somewhere that the early U may have had enormous stars, in orders of magnitude larger than current stars, would it be possible that the SMBH's at the center of each galaxy formed from these primordial massive stars? Or would we see evidence of this in the most distant galaxies? Are there any predictions for what massive objects formed the SMBH's or are they considered to merely have grown due to being "fed" stellar material for a few billion years?
Any information is appreciated.
