This is very interesting stuff. I do like how someone is trying to incorporate quantum mechanics into the description of black holes. That is a very important, and fundamental, description. Perhaps this is an small, incremental step to reconcilling quantum mechanics with relativity. I suppose it won't be a clear reconcilliation until we can probe events at the Plack scale and maybe, detect and deduce any quantum nature of space. Personally, I am more comfortable with this explanation than envoking a singularity and not fully accounting for quantum properties of matter. Anyone know if the Large Hadreon Collider will be able to probe events in these energy scales? I thought I heard it could create mini black holes. If so, there is room for experiments in this area.
BTW, the Planck scale is far out of reach. The LHC is going to be colliding protons, mostly, and their radius is about 10-13 cm. The Planck scale is of the order of 10-33 cm, 20 orders of magnitude smaller.
