singularity
« on: April 28, 2009, 11:29:18 AM »
the idea of a singularity is something that is infinitely small, However when dealing with Plancks, stuff can only get to a certain size so does that mean that a singularity isn't actually infinity small, it is just one plank length wide?

We'll never know, thanks to our good friend Event Horizon.

I thought that a naked singularity was at least theoretically possible if the object collapses in the correct shape.

Well, why don't you go and make one, then report back here?

My girlfriend has confirmed this theory.
If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

I guess she also confirmed that it is so small it needs to be measured on the plank scale.

So is that a safe assumption that a singularity would have to actually have a definite size?
