: Can anyone explain to me whaty "Star Lane" theory is?

Sorry, never heard of it.

There is a thing called the Lane-Emden Equation that describes a star as a polytrope. The polytropic index in conjuction with details on mass, luminoisity etc. allows an equation of state to be solved which leads to theories of stellar evlolution and creation. Apologies if that is not quite right, its been 10 years since I used the things.
