    I've been studying black holes quite recently, and I stumbled upon the incongruencies between Quantum mechanics and General relativity. Apparently both do not fit together in creating a fully scientific explanation about the phenomena of why black holes exist, i.e radiation, information paradoxes, etc. So I was wondering, what is the main barrier that slows us down trying to understand these wonderful phenomena?

    I provided a solution for this a while back and cannot find it on this forum.
    It has nothing to do with BH 's.
    I will post it tomorrow as a separate article.

    Quantum mechanics (QM) describes the physics of the sub-atomic scale, where the effect of gravity is negligible. General relativity (GR) describes the physics of gravity at really big scales where quantum effects are negligible. A black hole singularity, and also the singularity at the beginning of the universe, exhibit enormous gravity at a sub-atomic scale and thus require a unique theory of “quantum gravity”. The equations of QM and GR don’t mesh well, often giving results where the values stretch to infinity. It is hoped that a Grand Unified Theory can be developed that will give better results.

    G'day from the land of ozzzzzzzz

    There are varies schools of thought as to the make up of black holes.

    In order to understand.

    One needs to study the progressive formation from a Supernova, creating compact matter such as Neutron stars and the progressive formation theoretical quark stars and so on to the extreme compact matter that is serveral times the density of Neucleon matter. In these states the compact matter acts like a Neucelon and because of its hig density and forces prevents any escape of EMR creating the theoretical event horizon.

    Main stream says that nothing can escape a black hole. If thats the case why do we have merging and also a reduction in size and that the activity of the central black hole is directly related to the evolution of galaxies.


    This is non-main stream:

    Saying that, the compact matter is a plasma, being a plasma, we can apply its properties of double layer and the formation of Z-pinch which is able to produce jets with electromagnetic fields protecting it from the extreme gravitational field of the so called black hole. These jets go in a straight line for thousands of light years and are known to go for millions of light years reforming galaxies.

    If you want links relating to this I will post them.
    Smile and live another day
