New Research Focuses on Black Holes as Evolutionary Adaptation of Universe

"Cosmological natural selection hypothesis"

The maths underpinning Darwin's theory of natural selection could explain how the universe may be 'designed' to make black holes.

New Oxford University research builds on the 'cosmological natural selection hypothesis' ? an idea first put forward in the 1990s to explain the apparent 'fine-tuning' of the universe's basic parameters to allow for the existence of atoms, galaxies, and life itself.
