    Ever heard of holeum? Search for it on the web...you'll find something really interesting...maybe some light, finally - at the end of the tunnel?

    Primordial black holes were created in abundance during the initial moments after the big bang. They are nowhere to be found today - why? Did they die out because of the famous Hawking radiation? We don't know yet - but there's new research around which suggests they were not frittered away by nature - they formed stable bound states - which interact only gravitationally! These stable bound states have been named holeums. The research papers can be seen online at:
