I agree with the statement that "Singularities don’t exist" but perhaps for different physical reasons. Therefore I can't comment on whether or not Roy Kerr's approach is "on the right track" at present because there is a Penrose-Hawking theorem that he needs to get around which is quite technical in nature. But it is not necessary in my approach Smile | :) .

There are two kinds of approach to the attempts of realizing a consistent marriage between gravity and quantum mechanics: 1) treating spacetime as a fundamental physical entity as it is done in classical general relativity and main stream approach to its "quantization" including Roy Kerr's work; and 2) treating spacetime as an emergent entity from more fundamental concepts, which is what my theory had eventually accomplished in which Einstein's equation for curved spacetime was derived or emerged, together with Newton's gravitation constant G and cosmological constant Lambda, as an approximate one in which the very concept of emergent spacetime, which is a statistical entity here, inside or near a black hole becomes less clear due to larger quantum fluctuations there. There is no infinitesimally accurate spacetime entities like a classical singularity in my emergent spacetime since relativistic quantum mechanics takes over there.
