Trolling thru Lumo World, I found this comment from LM:
I just fucking wrote that there can't ever be any 100% certainty that a black hole - or any metastable object, for that matter - existed.
In some theories at least, every object is metastable, certainly Lumo, and maybe protons and even electrons.
Gives a certain amount of aid and comfort to my favorite crackpot theory - namely, that black holes don't really exist. I also have a certain nutty enthusiasm for the notion that entangled particles are connected by Einstein-Rosen bridges - the so-called ER-EPR hypothesis.
