For eons, the conclusion of our 'scientists' (RISHIS') regarding 'Jiva" and the UNIVERSE has transcended any kind of revision or correction or addition to it and even to this day rests on SOLID Foundations. But the assumptions that make-up WESTERN CIVILIZATION are on 'shifting-sands'. A recent example from the arena of 'cutting-edge science and research'.--- And still there is no news about some finite conclusions from the 'data' thrown-up by the Hadron-Collider.
For decades, Hawking contended that the information that disappeared inside a black hole was lost forever. Then, in 2004, he reversed course and said the information would slowly be released as a mangled form of energy. That switch led him to pay off a bet he had made with another physicist about the fate of information in a black hole.
Hawking's paper wasn't peer-reviewed, but his peers are already weighing in on the accuracy of the black hole weather report.
