: : : : : Wayne: Einstein felt that laws of physics must remain the same in all referrence frames. : : : : : LAW Two objects can not occupy the same space at the same time.
: : : : There is no such law.
: : : : : : Lau: Pauli exclusion principle
: : The Pauli exclusion principle does not say that.
: : Lau: true but it does to electrons and neutrons so it's reasonable to assume for any 2 objects though not yet proven
Actually it says that no two indistinguishable fermions can occupy the exact same quantum state. And it does not apply to all matter. It only applies to indistinguishable fermions.
: : : : : SINGULARITY = infinite number of objects occupy same space at same time.
: : : : Thats not quite what is meant by singularity.
: : : : : Lau: Singularity = infinite density = mass in zero volume(ie a point) therefore numerous objects occupying same space at same time.
: : : : No. Singularity means any infinite term in an equation of physics.
: : Lau: the infinite term is the density and curvature
An infinite term does not always mean infinite density or curvature. Even when it does mean infinite density, it still doesn't imply an infinite number of things.
