Standard Model Particle Variation

  1. Mar 21, 2004 #1
    The Standard Model of particle physics provides no explanation for the masses of the basic particles. If the masses were much larger- a possibility for a variation of the model- then a small collection of particles could collapse in a black hole. Of course this universe would be different from our own. In this type of universe- extreme space-time curvature, black hole evaporation, and quantum foam- would be commonplace. Any comments on this theory?

    My only comment is that I'm glad we don't live in such a universe.
