What if the Universe is recurrent and all the singularities are one?

This isn't the philosophy forum. What experiment do you propose?

Good point. Count up the number of black holes and their mass and see if it comes to the mass of the Universe or some multiple/ factor. Plot the location of the black holes at the time of their origin and see if it forms a pattern, try to develop a recurrent formula for these locations.

The singularities don't actually exist. They are an artifact of the failure of the equations of general relativity in domains where quantum gravity is required.

You need a quantum theory of gravity to describe what's going on at the Planck scale. Since general relativity is a classical theory, its equations are not valid in this realm. The point of infinite energy density is not a real physical state, since it is a result of applying the equations of general relativity at the Planck scale, where they no longer apply.

Dear a.p.

Read part of Prugovecki on Quantum Gravity based on compactness and integrability of physical functions - interesting but the principle not lucid enough - but on the plus side gets rid of "many worlds" replaces it with "lightening- many paths propagation". I've been reading "Space elastic and Impeding" which is a bit/ very "out there" but has some Neo-classical (Bohr atom) "takes" on particles as "twist and fold" topologies along which or in which light is trapped in torus/ tricky-tricky moebius strips. This could help explain why "matter drags time" ( as Stephen Hawking puts it), doesn't explain propagation or local motion of particles.

I also have an idea for a mechanism based on Heisenberg to explain a particle(light) becoming trapped and so appearing to be tracing out a moebius strip. Just haven't done the physics to see if it works.

Hoo - "Count up the number of black holes and their mass and see if it comes to the mass of the Universe "

How could the mass of a subset of things in the universe total the mass of the universe itself?

Many a bright idea has come to grief on the shoals of your last sentence.
