This paper seems to claim, that there is found powerful observational evidence for some anomalies in the CMB that seems to suggest a conformal cyclic cosmology and so called Hawking points. As I understand it, it also claims, that these points, were present in the very early universe and that they contained enormous amounts of energy. Does that mean that there is found evidence for big black holes in the very early universe? I would love if someone would explain in layman terms, what this is, and if the powerful evidence seems solid. If I have posted this in a wrong thread or forum, I am sorry. Did try to search for something about Hawking points. Have never heard of those before, and actually does not understand why it is not called black holes?
