Abstract: Supernovae of constant luminosities, with a tight neutron star companion, trigger complex systems leading to the formation of fast rotating Kerr Black Holes. Their rotational energy feeds gamma ray bursts which are extremely luminous. This presentation identifies extensions of known physical laws, inquiring on the unique role of these cosmic events. We follow their implications for the life evolution of our universe. We also present recent understanding on the largest ever GRB221009A exploded on last October 19 and followed by the largest number of Observatories in all wavelengths from the ground and from space, from radio all the way to MeV , GeV and TeV radiation and UHCR.
