It Physics of some sort

by Willy - 3/15/13 9:33 PM

No matter what I gather about "dark matter" it will reel in something about the state of current physics. The tangle of physics of not only the cosmic but also the quantum variety. They become linked one way or another. I haven't really gotten anything that pin-points what dark matter is, other than theory. I understand this is still an unknown but overall it seems to grossed over and/or humped into the current state of physics. It's hard enough trying to figure things out and then separate one theory from another that has nothing to do with the other. BUT! it's all linked in some grand scheme of some sort. While, I have always stated here and elsewhere I probably could never understand the math involved, it sure seems like many of the models are purely hypothetical in nature or merely a step-up from present understood "standard model theory". Further, while I query about about dark matter, soon enough dark energy becomes tangled in as well. They become more in focus as the "dark subject" as you can't mention one w/o the other. As i have stated in the past,, the best proof has been on the "galactic scale" of things. It takes that much to show something. In other words, the universe is the lab and no amount of high-energy collisions at CERN, Livermore or any other collider is going to prove it. While the Boson-Higgs particle and all it implies is the result for now, what does that do for dark matter. No link that I can think of. Maybe, I missed it but it shows mass(how it provides) and maybe can be attributed to neutrinos and the like which are mysterious particles too. It's not like a jigsaw puzzle and you try to join the pieces, it's more like thinking there is a jigsaw puzzle and you can't find it but theorize what it may look like while you look.

I just finished another book, called: Scientific American, Cutting Edge Science, Extreme Physics. Somewhat impressive but lacking in anything for dark matter. Maybe a few lines on dark matter and energy but nothing that smacks of a clue. However, a link is provided for further inquiry on physics: <---decent article and more links

enjoy -----Willy happy still looking (o,o)

E = MC2 uses that as basis....

? - If matter is less energy, how does it not lose matter as it just "is" while its active or remain active particle?

? - If energy is not matter, when it loses energy does it become matter?

? - Vacuum energy or dark energy really the basis for the cosmic constant? And if so, why do galaxies remain as a whole yet still fly away from each other in the accelerating universe? Shouldn't that imply that everything fly apart.

? - Why is gravity so different from the other 4 known forces?

Answer back, and win nothing because no one know anyways, it's all theory. -----Willy shocked
