I admire the audacity of Leonardo Modesto, who has made a daring leap in the dark. =================== http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0701239 Loop quantum gravity and black hole singularity Leonardo Modesto 17 pages, 7 figures. Proceedings of the XVII SIGRAV Conference, Turin, September 4-7, 2006 "In this paper we summarize loop quantum gravity (LQG) and we show how ideas developed in LQG can solve the black hole singularity problem when applied to a minisuperspace model." ===================== What do you think of the final paragraph of the conclusion section of this paper? He has written it in italics for emphasis. It is interesting to recall that beyond the classical singularity the eigenvalue [itex]\mu_E[/itex] is negative and so we can suggest a new universe was born from the black hole formation process. In LQBH scenario pure states which fall into black hole emerge in a new universe as pure states and the information loss problem is avoided. Information is not lost in the black hole but it exists again in the space-time region in the future of the avoided singularity. ===================== Perhaps I should not joke and call this a "leap in the dark". He has a lot of analysis in this paper to back it up----and also he has written several earlier papers on the Loop Quantum Black Hole (LQBH).
