Here is something I posted on the superstring forum. But it did not get a response. I'm wondering if a response would be forthcoming here. It has to do with black holes.

"I would like to hear comments regarding the possibility that the vacuum unified field is actually described by the original 26-D non-supersymmetric closed string theory. This theory was abandoned in favor of the supersymmetric 10-D theories because it did not allow for matter and contains tachyons, particles that travel faster than the speed of light.

But the unified field should not contain mass. And before the big bang, perhaps particles could travel faster than the speed of light. Light did not even exist.

I particularly like the fit of 26-D string theory with Smolin's hypothesis, in the Newton sense, that universes emerge out of black holes. I am willing to hypothesize that the unified field exists within the singularities of black holes, probably within a protective membrane that keeps all 10-D mass on the outside. Then new universes emerge, as described in Greene's book, when the 26-D compactify into a 10-D space capable of containing matter.

Well, Greene did not talk about 26-D. He just suggested that separate space-times can snap off from existing space-times. Black holes would be the suitable place, soas not to interfere with the mother universe."

There has been some discussion on this forum about creation and what came before. Well, this is the most prominent view currently in science circles as to how it all happens. Simply put, black holes produce new universes. And Greene's book, "The Elegant Universe" describes how it happens.
