A dedicated search of the CMB sky, driven by implications of conformal
cyclic cosmology (CCC), has revealed a remarkably strong signal, previously
unobserved, of numerous small regions in the CMB sky that would appear to be
individual points on CCC's crossover 3-surface from the previous aeon, most
readily interpreted as the conformally compressed Hawking radiation from
supermassive black holes in the previous aeon, but difficult to explain in
terms of the conventional inflationary picture.
