# Gravitational crystal inside the black hole

@article{Nikoli2015GravitationalCI, title={Gravitational crystal inside the black hole}, author={Hrvoje Nikoli{\'c}}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2015} }

Crystals, as quantum objects typically much larger than their lattice spacing, are a counterexample to a frequent prejudice that quantum effects should not be pronounced at macroscopic distances. We propose that the Einstein theory of gravity only describes a fluid phase and that a phase transition of crystallization can occur under extreme conditions such as those inside the black hole. Such a crystal phase with lattice spacing of the order of the Planck length offers a natural mechanism for…

Black holes, initially thought of as very interesting mathematical and geometric solutions of general relativity, over time, have come up with surprises and challenges for modern physics. In modern…

Black hole information paradox without Hawking radiation

By entangling soft massless particles one can create an arbitrarily large amount of entanglement entropy that carries an arbitrarily small amount of energy. Dropping this entropy into the black hole…

We propose a new non-holographic formulation of AdS/CFT correspondence, according to which quantum gravity on AdS and its dual non-gravitational field theory both live in the same number D of…

A new model of consciousness derived from black hole information paradox

Panpsychism is the view that consciousness is a fundamental feature of reality. Panpsychism addresses the fact that no physical theories can ever be able to explain conscious experience in terms of…

Maximal acceleration and black hole evaporation

Abstract It is proposed that the infinite-red-shift surface of a black hole is a quantum phase transition of the vacuum of space-time analogous to the liquid-vapour critical point of a Bose fluid.…

This paper examines the conundrum faced when one attempts to understand the dynamics of black hole formation and evaporation without abandoning unitary evolution: remnants that carry large amounts of information and whose size and mass depend on their information content.
