I feel compelled to say, "I agree with the theory regarding Black Hole Singularity." In that it's infinitely small. Regardless if it can or cannott be quantified. Without any need for mathematics, understanding infinitely small can be understood with a Bumblebee Stinger. Surely a Bumblebee's Stinger when compared to our Spiral Galaxy is thought to be closely in size to the average black hole singularity..... Or maybe the tiny hairs on the Bee's stinger. One thing is for certain, "That bee sting is as real as the nerve that had the unfortunate luck of knowing that (stuff)."

Welcome to the boards, LT!

The "average black hole singularity" does not have a "size." Since you seem to like analogies, does division by zero result in a size?

Hi and welcome,

There is no comparison, a bee's stinger or hair even a hair on the bee is trillions of times greater in magnitude than quarks & gluons (particles that make up protons and neutrons inside an atom). A singularity is a mathematical concept rather than physical, in that physically a true singularity may not be able to exist. We don't know what physical form resides at the centre of a black hole, if any at all. But if it is something infinitesimally small, then it will be immeasurably smaller than even a quark or gluon.
