Abstract

Recent work on the status of astrophysical modeling in the wake of quantum gravity indicates that a 'fauxrizon' (portmanteau of 'faux horizon'), such as is relevant to understanding astrophysical black holes according to the fuzzball proposal within string theory, might ultimately solve the familiar black hole evaporation paradox. I clarify, with general upshots for the foundations of quantum gravity research, some of what this suggestion would amount to: identification of intertheoretic constraints on global spacetime structure in (observer-relative) semiclassical models of fuzzballs.
