    sridharanr. A very pessimistic view. Electricity can be generated by magnetic fields and what do black holes have in plenty? Magnetic fields, so we will have unlimited energy.

    I suspect that there is a maximum size for black holes, which would be bigger than the 18 billion solar mass candidate that we know of. You keep shepherding them towards each other till at some point, the fundamental particles at the centre do give and become strings (or whatever the smallest possible component is) and I think you'll find gravity, so the event horizon will vanish. In an explosion which would make a hypernova look like a fire cracker going off, the building blocks of matter would be flung across the universe to make hydrogen and helium and new stars.

    You suspect ? You think ? There is zero evidence for that.

    On what physical principles is this fantasy of yours based ? (Answer: none)

    Look. Another non answer from Yogi Bear.

    There is zero evidence for singularities and inflation. Your point is.....on the top of your head.

    Stop evasive manoeuvres! What is your evidence for a maximum mass of a Black Hole? And stop talking about singularities. You are fighting shadows. For the last time: they are not important.

    If I were to be pessimistic I wouldn't have added the last sentence - for us humans this moment of life in itself is an eternity, you can still live on optimism Mr.Cyberia, there is no need for wild speculations.

    We have no evidence that a normal black hole can break down fundamental particles. However if we take it that all particles are made of something very basic as in the legendary strings, then if we continue to add mass, so pile up the pressure on them, then at some point why should fundamental particles not collapse into strings? As such they are no longer matter and possibly even too small for gravity so the black hole ceases to exist.

    And stop talking about singularities. You are fighting shadows. For the last time: they are not important.
    Yet scientists still talk of them as though they actually do exist.

    sridharanr. Since we cannot know, the future of the universe is all down to speculations. Some talk of a rebound and collapse while others of a heat death in a continually expanding universe. Others even of a big rip where expansion continues increasing till even molecules then atoms come apart. There are many ideas on the subject which is OK if people remember that they are just ideas.

    Any freshman physics would be summarily flunked out of the program for statements of this magnitude of ignorance and stupidity.

    Not one single statement has any even a tenuous tie to real physics.

    You have got to be putting us on.
