there are many small womholes that are continuously created throught time, they may nto remain open for long enough for more than a photon to enter them, because they are not generally fed the"unknown matter" that is often spoken of which would be needed to allow them to remain continually open (possibly antimatter i believe) i wonder what sort of affect these "rips in spacetime" may have on the passing photon, and if they could have any sort of significance more specifically with photon than for example an electron, or even more probably a quark. (because of their largely wavelike properties opposed to those of the slightly larger more particulate matter mentioned) i am sorry about using the term particle, and wave i knwo they are fairly inaccurate, but are easiest to work with.

I don't think the idea of many small wormholes pervading space and time can be encompassed in classical general relativity. Perhaps the quantum gravity forum would be a better home for the thread.
