One Way in which Gravity Waves are Significant

The existence of gravity waves has just been documented. And a question I’ve already been asked, is ‘How is this discovery significant?’

Throughout the 1970s, Scientists had a theory about black holes, which was based on Einstein. This theory stated ‘A Black Hole Has No hair’. It stated, that a black hole needed to be featureless. And the reason that was given was the fact, that waves could exist momentarily in its shape, but that if they do, their potential energy is carried away by gravity waves very rapidly, thus also ending the deformities.

Since the 1970s, Quantum Mechanics gurus felt that they were able to repudiate this theory, simply by saying ‘What gravity waves? Nobody has ever been able to prove that gravity waves exist!’

One question which QM specialists have also been sidestepping since the 1970s, was ‘Through what force is information stored on the event horizon of a black hole?’ This question calls upon the fact that while a physical phenomenon, such as a black hole, can in fact store information in some cases, this information is being represented by something material. E.g., Information can be stored on a Hard Drive, through Magnetic Fields.

Well information would also need to be stored at the event horizon, in the form of something else, other than simply information. Such, as in the form of waves in its shape. But QM specialists who have claimed that black holes store information, have never answered, ‘In what physical form?’

And you see, there is a possible form. Black holes are currently understood to radiate Hawking Radiation, which resembles dark-body radiation. Well ‘thermodynamic radiation’ is similar to the behavior of a pseudo-random number generator on a computer. Even a computer cannot generate pseudo-random numbers, without storing a small amount of information temporarily in a register.

But the real question which remains unanswered about black holes, is what mechanism if any they might have, to store more information than they would need to store, merely to generate Hawking Radiation, which would be an amount of information merely proportional to the surface area, of the black hole.

Since at its event horizon, the gravity of a black hole is thought to be infinite, it should also overpower whatever else might be happening there. But curiously so, except for Hawking Radiation.
