A) Bosons don't stack. You're thinking of Fermions.  

We might not see any stacking of bosons in our 4 dimensional perspective of spacetime. But can't bosons be stacked in another 5th dimension that is hidden to us, and still appear to have the same location in our 4-dimensional perspective?

Also, how can the singularity in black holes be composed of fermions, when they cannot have the same location due to the Pauli exclusion principle? White dwarfs and neutron stars might be composed of stacked fermions, but they are much less dense than black holes. Are you sure it is possible to stack fermions well enough to make a black hole?



B) GR predicts black holes without reference to QM.  

General relativity might predict that spacetime can be curved enough to trap light, but I think you need quantum mechanics and particle physics to predict what material(s) black holes are composed of.

Ok. What about this?

If space is 3 dimensional, and spacetime is 4 dimensional, couldn't we regard scale as a 5th dimension?

But are you sure humans always know what is the "right" or "good" thing to do? Why are most Russians so supportive of Putin? Why are most Chinese people supportive of their new social credit system? Are you sure we aren't going to get a similar system here in the future, because people might think it is a righteous system?

Is it righteous to not allow people to do stupid or self-harmful things? If you think the moral goal is to maximize human well-being, you might think it is morally justifiable to not allow people to do stupid and self-harmful things, and then the Chinese social credit system might seem like a brilliant idea.

The moral confusion is about the removal of human volition in an attempt to maximize well-being. Therefore I thought it would be a good idea to invent a God that forbids people from restricting the volition of other people. People must be allowed to be stupid. We learn from our mistakes.

How does Hinduism strike you? They have a different breakdown.

I think one mythology is enough... and I think maybe humanity needs something like a God to say something about morality. Otherwise, I am scared that atheists might become more amoral over time, or at least morally confused. Especially some of the far-left seems morally confused.

We want aliens this time!  And none of that anthropomorphic grey bobblehead-people shit. No, it must be starfish aliens, with full production values.
