## Black Holes and Quantum Theory: The Fine Structure Constant Connection

**Authors:** Reginald T. Cahill

The new dynamical theory of space is further confirmed by showing that the effective
"black hole" masses M_{BH} in 19 spherical star systems, from globular clusters to
galaxies, with masses M, satisfy the prediction that M_{BH} = α/2 M, where α is the
fine structure constant. As well the necessary and unique generalisations of the
Schrödinger and Dirac equations permit the first derivation of gravity from a deeper
theory, showing that gravity is a quantum effect of quantum matter interacting with
the dynamical space. As well the necessary generalisation of Maxwell's equations
displays the observed light bending effects. Finally it is shown from the generalised
Dirac equation where the spacetime mathematical formalism, and the accompanying
geodesic prescription for matter trajectories, comes from. The new theory of space is
non-local and we see many parallels between this and quantum theory, in addition to
the fine structure constant manifesting in both, so supporting the argument that space is
a quantum foam system, as implied by the deeper information-theoretic theory known
as Process Physics. The spatial dynamics also provides an explanation for the "dark
matter" effect and as well the non-locality of the dynamics provides a mechanism
for generating the uniformity of the universe, so explaining the cosmological horizon
problem.
