Is it just me, or are everyone implicitly assuming it will work? It
looks like an interesting idea (I have not yet seen the real physics
papers) but I wonder if he has taken the presence of the EBC into
account - I bet he has found a vacuum solution of the GR equations, and
now hope the presence of matter doesn't change it too much.
