Black Holes: A String/M-Theory Perspective
The pre-string theory conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics was an affront to our visceral sense that the laws of nature should fit together in a seamless, coherent whole. But this antagonism was more than a towering abstract disjunction. The extreme physical conditions that occurred at the moment of the big bang and that prevail within black holes cannot be understood without a quantum mechanical formulation of the gravitational force. (Epsilon=One: A lot of words to say that physicists have NO quantitative proof of a Big Bang and Black Holes. Both of which are ludicrous and fly in the face of 21st century logic.) With the discovery of string theory, we now have a hope of solving these deep mysteries. In this and the next chapter, we describe how far string theorists have gone toward understanding black holes and the origin of the universe.
