This post below from a "Prof. ROb Ph.D etc,etc." brings up a point we often forget.

First and formost, Quantum Thoery and Relativity do not reconcile. There is only ONE possible conclusion from this: SOMEBODY is wrong!

All the postulations about blackholes and tachyons and other hypothetical particles and concepts are just that. Hypothetical.

So far all the attempts to resolve what truly occurs in the interaction with blackholes, spinning or otherwise, is either untestable or leads to some form of paradox. And since there ARE no paradoxes, any theory that leads to one must be incomplete.

In Quantum Theory, the prediction of quanta based on theory has turned out to be correct in some areas as is evidenced by the recent confirmation and discovery of the elusive Top Quark. Remember, we've been talking in terms of these 6 Quark particles for over 20 years now, but have only recently "proved" the last of the group actually exists.

We still have a long way to go, any many OLD problems that have not been solved yet such as the EPR Paradox that Einstein and colleages pointed out as a result of the polarized double slit experiment. This is OLD stuff and it is still unresolved. String theories try to address some of this, but ar as yet, HIGHLY speculative.

Let's not forget what we truly DO NOT KNOW yet when we get to hypothesizing about these matters. Sometime we speak as if what we are saying is indisputable fact. It is not. We are hypothesizing "on the edge" here. Let's not forget that.
