The Hawking Paradox
Posted in the Physics Forum
#1 Jul 26, 2012
As I understand it the Hawking Paradox has to do with Hawking’s suggestion that the information about everything that had ever been inside a black hole would disappear when the black hole disappeared. This idea flies in the face of the generally accepted idea that information cannot be lost.
Leonard Susskind suggested that if Hawking's ideas were correct then there would no longer be any direct link between cause and effect. Information cannot be lost.
I can’t quite get my mind around the logic of the idea that if information can be lost the principle of cause and effect is negated. Can anyone help?
