There seems to be a strong theory that the electron could be a 'naked' singularity or maximal Kerr black hole (maximal meaning it wouldn't give off any Hawking radiation and therefore wouldn't evaporate instantly). While technically there would be no event horizon due to the fact that the inner and outer event horizons meet at the gravitational radius (M), the Schwarzschild radius would still apply as it is always the reduced circumference (R) of r(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{+}and r_{-}regardless of spin so for a maximal rotating black hole where the two horizons meet at the gravitational radius, the reduced circumference (R) at the gravitational radius is R_{s}. Based on the mass of the electron, 9.109e-31 kg, R_{s}would be 1.353e-57 m, which is way smaller than the current accepted minimum of Planck length, 1.616e-35 m, of which anything smaller is considered to be just quantum foam. Does the theory for the black hole electron pose a solution to this or is it one of the problems posed by the theory?
