thanks for your fime and effort to reply. 3 things:

1. You picked my Hawkng typo, I have many more. I do
recall that post and it gives me while writing, the
subconscious vacillation: which version is the right
and which the left? Very rarely do I wright his name.

2. You use usable (used) physics views in a topic way
away from classical physics views, puting a systems
talk into space-time measuring with a morphology I
cannot (don't want to) follow in this thread. 

3. In your last par you said it: "isolated from the
rest of the unkiverse" exactly the singularity I DO
identify with Tom's description of a "closed system". 

And 2Qs: 
> What is an unknowable closed system?<
If nothing (including information) "comes out" it must
be pretty "unknowable". In that ballgame ou suppose:
it turns "open" from "c;osed" and then again "closed",
I assume it disappears from our observation. I see no
indication that it keeps the same coordinates when
dissappeared as we found kit at when it was "open".
The coordunates you want to find it at dissipate as
Not to mention the changes "or" world ujndergoes to...

How is "move" identified in connection with (my
version of) closed system (singularity) with no
interconnection in space lor time of OUR habiturl
system? Assigning coordinates to "no-info" sounds
funny. And the shielded vacuum container is Physics

 I am on a different track...
