Dear All,

Happy New Year indeed! Let us all 'hope' (here OK) that 2017 does not turn into 
1984. . .

Regarding the proposed discussion topic, I have two suggestions:

1) everyone should read, at least, the excellent and recent (Dec., 2016) 
Wikipedia article on Small Black Holes, so that we can share a minimum 
background (sic);

2) Otto should please tell us his theory of why miniature black holes from any 
source should not Hawking evaporate after exhausting the matter within a Fermi 
distance, thus eliminating the possibility of further growth.

  Subject: [Fis] A Curious Story

  Dear FISers, 

  Herewith the Lecture inaugurating our 2017 sessions.
  I really hope that this Curious Story is just that, a curiosity.
  But in science we should not look for hopes but for arguments and 

  Best wishes to All and exciting times for the New Year!

  A Curious Story

  Otto E. Rossler, University of Tübingen, Germany

  Maybe I am the only one who finds it curious. Which fact would then make it 
even more curious for me. It goes like this: Someone says “I can save your 
house from a time bomb planted into the basement” and you respond by saying “I 
don’t care.” This curious story is taken from the Buddhist bible.  

  It of course depends on who is offering to help. It could be a lunatic person 
claiming that he alone can save the planet from a time-bomb about to be planted 
into it. In that case, there would be no reason to worry. On the other hand, it 
could also be that you, the manager, are a bit high at the moment so that you 
don't fully appreciate the offer made to you. How serious is my offer herewith 
made to you today?

  I only say that for eight years' time already, there exists no counter-proof 
in the literature to my at first highly publicized proof of danger. I was able 
to demonstrate that the miniature black holes officially attempted to be 
produced at CERN do possess two radically new properties: 

    a.. they cannot Hawking evaporate 
    b.. they grow exponentially inside matter

  If these two findings hold water, the current attempt at producing ultra-slow 
miniature black holes on earth near the town of Geneva means that the 
slower-most specimen will get stuck inside earth and grow there exponentially 
to turn the planet into a 2-cm black hole after several of undetectable growth. 
Therefore the current attempt of CERN's to produce them near Geneva is a bit 

  What is so curious about CERN's attempt? It is the fact that no one finds it 
curious. I am reminded of an old joke: The professor informs the candidate 
about the outcome of the oral exam with the following words “You are bound to 
laugh but you have flunked the test.” I never understood the punchline. I 
likewise cannot understand why a never refuted proof of the biggest danger of 
history leaves everyone unconcerned. Why NOT check an unattended piece of 
luggage on the airport called Earth?  

  To my mind, this is the most curious story ever -- for the very reason that 
everyone finds it boring. A successful counter-proof would thus alleviate but a 
single person’s fears – mine. You, my dear reader, are thus my last hope that 
you might be able to explain the punch line to me: “Why is it that it does not 
matter downstairs that the first floor is ablaze?” I am genuinely curious to 
learn why attempting planetocide is fun.  Are you not?

  For J.O.R.
