New Theory on What Constitutes Dark Matter
presence of "dark matter" in the universe is a recent theory that
is based on the rotational velocities of the stars in galaxies, all of which
appear to be moving at or near the same speed. This does not appear to conform
to Newton's gravitational theory. The presence of some sort of unseen matter
permeating the universe can presumably account for this phenomenon. Hence
the recent proposition that "Dark Matter" must exist throughout
the universe. However, the presence of another type of matter throughout
the universe is not new. Lord Kelvin described it in a lecture at the Franklin
Institure in 1884. He called it the "luminiferous ether" as an
elastic solid similar in kind to that of elastic jelly and related to the
nature of electricity. Now, after more than a century, we have the tools
and knowledge to delve further into this ancient proposition, which may
be the true answer.
dark matter electromagnetic in nature? The earlier theories about electromagnetic
field waves were based on the presence of an ether in the universe. Is the
ether dark matter? Perhaps. Here is a link to a website that presents
a short history about the ether
theories. The most recent theory is a particle theory in which the dark
matter is believed to consist of Higgs
Bosons , which are particles and therefore fit in with the theories
of Quantum Mechanics. They believe that they have found the "shadow"
of a Higgs Boson, which raises new questions. How is it possible for particles,
which exceed all others in amount, block radiation and not be easy to find?
Wouldn't this absorption heat up the entire universe? Is absolute zero not
absolutely zero? How is it that all other forms of radiation are not blocked
in a vacuum? Isn't this a rather shallow theory? But then, that is all they
have to work with right now. It is a hypothetical particle based on hypothetical
assumptions. They are neglecting the basic physics of a subject which I
have spent many years of investigation, working all of the basic equations
of physics against know measurements and using this information to solve
several of the fundamental mysteries of science.
there an ether in the universe? Does that ether consist of Higgs Bosons?
Some say that Einstein claimed that there is no such thing as an aether.
However, in his later years he said that the most important remaining problem
of science was relating matter to the electromagnetic field.
We do know that our "vacuum" has properties similar to that of
matter. It is electromagnetic, since it has both electric and magnetic constants
associated with it. How is it that a "vacuum" has such properties?
Although the ether theory was never disproved, present day physics organizations
have no longer supported the concept of an ether in the universe and have
move to mechanical theories. However, I deduced that the bending of
the field waves must be caused by something. Yes they do bend, as
you can see by plotting actual field waves
as derived from the Mesny equations of electromagnetic radiation. If
you can solve this seemingly simple electrical puzzle,
you can prove to yourself that the field waves of moving electric charges
must bend laterally. It is a simple exercise,
but not what most would expect. I wrote my first book on the solution to
the mystery of gravity back in 1997, illustrating
the bending of field waves. I discovered later that this was supported by
measurements as far back as 1936! The
bending of electromagnetic field waves tends to support this ether theory,
and also dark matter theory. Perhaps the most compelling fact supporting
the existence of dark matter is the substance of the aether which is represented
by the electric and magnetic constants e and u
that seem to exist everywhere in the universe, and the bending of the field
waves that seem to indicate they have a small amount of mass. The aether
does have electromagnetic properties (permeability and permittivity), from
which Maxwell deduced the speed of light. All matter has these properties,
and the vacuum of space has these properities. Another strong argument for
this substance appears at the end of the next page. On the other hand, not
all of this measured data yet supports the Higgs Boson theory, although
it does have some merit and deserves to be considered (is it worth the billions
of dollars spent in investigating it?). Next
