In other words, how can an observer possibly measure the length of contraction below Planck length? You can't.

You can't.If the Planck mass collapses into a black hole then all the energy fits into a radius of two Planck lengths. Therefore this must be impossible as it violates the very quatisation described by quantum mechanics. The mass just disappears from the observable universe.

If this is true, recognizing that many such black holes exist in our present universe, could one surmise that our universe is growing lighter even though it appears to be growing in volume?
