Mike - that link seems to lead to a discussion of whether or not chess is infinite.
Did you mean this
That's a pretty interesting article. So, it's been proved in a paper that:
...all three of the following cannot be simultaneously true:
* Hawking radiation is in a pure state.
* The information carried by the radiation is emitted from the region near the horizon, with low energy effective field theory valid beyond some microscopic distance from the horizon.
* The infalling observer encounters nothing unusual at the horizon.
Hawking threw out # 2, but a few more papers by less famous authors throw out # 1 instead, 'rescuing' the notion of an event horizon and thus providing an alternative to "There are no black holes".
Sorry about that. You are correct. I had copy/pasted the other link to someone earlier in an email while indeed discussing chess. I thought I had done a "Control-C" on the other link, but obviously did not check too closely.
At any rate, I hope you found that other article interesting. :/
And now another paper (not yet peer reviewed) has arisen concerning Hawking's recent black hole claim. It may be nothing, but I found it interesting nonetheless.Planck Star to Arise from Black Holes
