My Musing on Roger Penrose

Recommended Posts

Roger Penrose's quantum gravity is more elegant than the Dune universe! In supermassive black holes, you get quantum decoherence of gravity waves. Because in the Schwarzschild equation R=2GM/c^2 the density of a black hole decreases as the mass of a black hole increases to the point where the quantum gravity wavefunction comes out of superposition, so that the black hole becomes governed by Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and not a unified theory of quantum gravity.

So quantum gravity applies in smaller black holes and the first few instants after the Big Bang (or great inflation).

Roger Penrose claim your Nobel Prize!
