Higgs Mechanism and Black Holes

  • #1
If seems to me that the conditions in the early universe which led to the activation of the Higgs field might be found inside a black hole, but in reverse. This might explain the mystery of infinite density inside a black hole, uniting Gen Rel and QM. Might a black hole then be a baby universe evolving backwards in time?

Unlikely. We probably need a new theory of gravity along with better understanding of what goes on at super extreme energies/densities before we can solve that mystery. The higgs field only explains the mass of particles, not extreme gravity.

Probably not. I know of no theories or hypothesis that have claimed this is possible.
