Dark Matter and the Uncertainty Principle

I hope a pointer to a speculative post on a blog is OK in this group. But as the posting rules at https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=5374 reference a dead page, I was unable to check ;-)

(It would be easy to copy and paste that article here, if that is considered desirable to avoid future duff URLs.)

Anyway, I'd be interested in any constructive or destructive (but sane!) comments on my blog post at

Cheers

I patched up the blog post toward the end, clarifying the fact that it must be _momentum_ that the black hole "observes/measures" precisely, in order to allow the position to be uncertain!

Because the position of mass-energy must be precisely "measured" at the singularity, this of course implies that some extra mass-energy must be involved. I propose that mass inflation supplies this.

Apologies for any confusion (and of course please comment if any remains, or there is something else that needs taking into account).
