Smolin has a theory that black holes in our Universe result in new Universes. He says Universes that are capable of creating black holes get to produce more Universes etc. http://www.space.com/21335-black-holes-time-universe-creation.html I was reminded of Smolin's ideas by this recent article: http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/sp...ged-from-a-black-hole-in-a-higher-dimensional So I was wondering is Smolin's theory regarding the importance of black holes becoming more mainstream? Presumably it could never be proved? At least Black Holes seem to be a partition between our U and somewhere else.
