## Main Question or Discussion Point

Can one say that it is the same factors (whatever they may be, I don't know) in M-theory/String theory that puts away the effects of quantum fluctations, and also puts away the need/possibility of a singularity in a black hole?

I see a connection since M-theory sets a limit of size (planck- length?), and thus the small but non negliable effects of quantum mechanics on a small scale can be ignored, since string theory sets a smallest limit which is bigger than the level at which quantum fluctations occur.

The same reasoning goes for black hole singularities, though I can't explain that with the details used above.

How are these two factors/effects of string theory connected (do they even exist?).
