My understanding of the main problem with adding gravity to quantum theory is that gravity is proportional to 1/distance squared. And so for particles that have no size (like electrons), their gravity is effectively infinite in a collision. Or in quantum terms, the equations don't converge on the interaction of these 'fuzzy' particles.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, Penrose hypothesises that all singularities will hide behind an event horizon, so we avoid having to deal with them.

Is it not logical that something tiny like an electron should have an event horizon?

Sure, it has a tiny mass, but it has an even tinier radius.
