  1. Dark matter is now understood to fill what would otherwise be considered to be empty space. 'Cosmologists at Penn Weigh Cosmic Filaments and Voids' 'No Empty Space in the Universe --Dark Matter Discovered to Fill Intergalactic Space' Dark matter which fills 'empty' space is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it. Including 'particles' as large as galaxies and galaxy clusters. The state of displacement of the dark matter is curved spacetime.
  2. 'Empty' space has mass which is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it. The notion of dark matter as a weakly interacting clump of stuff that travels with the matter is incorrect. Dark matter fills 'empty' space and is displaced by matter. The dark matter does indeed swirl. The state of displacement of the dark matter is curved spacetime. The geometrical representation of gravity as curved spacetime physically exists in nature as the state of displacement of the dark matter. The dark matter displaced by the Earth pushing back and exerting pressure toward the Earth is gravity.
  3. In the article the 'swirl' is referring to space and time. In the article the state of spacetime is referred to as a 'swirl'. Space and time are 'swirling', just as honey would. It is the dark matter that 'swirls'.
  4. The 'swirl' is the curvature of spacetime. The 'swirl' is the state of displacement of the dark matter. The curvature of spacetime is the state of displacement of the dark matter.
  5. I'm saying 'empty' space has mass which is displaced by matter. 'Ether and the Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein' if, in fact nothing else whatever were observable than the shape of the space occupied by the dark matter as it varies in time, we should have no ground for the assumption that dark matter consists of particles which can be individually tracked through time. But all the same we could characterise it as a medium having mass which is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it. Robert B. Laughlin, Nobel Laureate in Physics, endowed chair in physics, Stanford University, had this to say about ether in contemporary theoretical physics: Matter, quantum solids and fluids, a piece of window glass and 'stuff' have mass and so does the dark matter. NASA's Gravity Probe B Confirms Two Einstein Space-Time Theories Honey has mass and so does the dark matter. The 'swirl' is the state of displacement of the dark matter.
  6. Dark matter is now understood to fill what would otherwise be considered to be empty space. Cosmologists at Penn Weigh Cosmic Filaments and Voids "No Empty Space in the Universe" --Dark Matter Discovered to Fill Intergalactic Space Dark matter which fills the space unoccupied by particles of matter is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it. Dark matter strongly interacts with matter. Dark matter is displaced by matter. The state of displacement of the dark matter is curved spacetime. The state of displacement of the dark matter is gravity.
  7. The post I was responding to asked, "does empty space have any mass?". The answer is, yes it does. If you don't want to understand this then that is fine. However, 'empty' space does have mass which is displaced by matter whether you choose to understand it, or not. This is getting off topic but I think it is worth this single response. [0903.3802] The Milky Way's dark matter halo appears to be lopsided The Milky Way's halo is not a clump of dark matter traveling along with the Milky Way. The Milky Way's halo is lopsided due to the matter in the Milky Way moving through and displacing the dark matter, analogous to a submarine moving through and displacing the water. What physicists mistake for the density of the dark matter is actually the state of displacement of the dark matter. Physicists think they are determining the density of the dark matter by how much it and the matter curve spacetime. What they fail to realize is the state of displacement of the dark matter is curved spacetime. No one can make you correctly understand what occurs physically in nature. You have to want to correctly understand what occurs physically in nature in order to do so. You have to be willing and able to.
  8. Yes! You have just figured out one of the biggest misconceptions in physics today! Dark matter is not a weakly interacting clump of stuff that travels with the matter. Dark matter fills 'empty' space and is displaced by matter. The "missing mass" is the mass of the dark matter connected to and neighboring the matter which is displaced by the matter. In terms of the article I linked to earlier the energy associated with a supermassive black hole is actually matter evaporating into dark matter as it falls toward the black hole. It is the dark matter which is emitted by the black hole which pushes the particles of matter, the gas, far beyond the extent of the host galaxy. This is also occurring at the scale of the Universal black hole. It is emitting dark matter into our Universal lobe which pushes the galaxy clusters away from us. This process is dark energy. The dark matter does not have to be moving through the Universe faster than the speed of light. The analogy is throwing a stick into a river. As long as the water is flowing faster than the stick the stick will continue to accelerate as the water pushes it as it flows past the stick. This is analogous to what the dark matter is doing to the galaxy clusters.
  9. Which at the scale of the Universal black hole is propelling the galaxy clusters away from each other. For the analogy, the supermassive black hole causes the particles of matter, the gas, to be pushed far beyond the extent of the galaxy itself. The Universal black hole pushes the galaxy clusters. At the scale of the Universal black hole the galaxy clusters are the particles of matter, the gas.
  10. The article is not referring to the jets. The article is referring to the energy the supermassive black hole is emitting which pushes the particles of matter, the gas, far beyond the extent of the host galaxy. At the scale of our Universe this energy is referred to as dark energy.
  11. That something is the Universal black hole powering the Universal lobe we exist in.
  12. Black holes banish matter into cosmic voids At the scale of our Universe the energy described above is dark energy. A Universal black hole is powering the Universal lobe we exist in.
  13. I will repeat myself from an earlier post in response to a similar question of yours: A Universal black hole powering the Universal lobe we exist in might be all that there is. It's likely there is another jet/lobe opposite the one we are in. Our Universal black hole and its associated lobes could exist in a sea of Universal black holes and their associated lobes just as our Milky Way galaxy is one galaxy in a sea of galaxies. As of now, we have no evidence of an outside of our Universal lobe. That doesn't imply there is, or isn't, an outside our lobe. Just that there is no evidence of it.
  14. What exists beyond our Universe. You have the following galaxy and its associated black hole, accretion disk and jets/lobes. What lies beyond the extend of the galaxy is the Universe. You have our Universal black hole, accretion disk and lobes/jets. What lies beyond the extend of our Universe is the cosmos.
