    Redefining Dark Matter - Wave Instead Of Particle

    In cosmology, cold dark matter is believed to be a form of matter which moves slowly in comparison with light and interacts weakly with electromagnetic radiation. It is estimated that only a minute fraction of the matter in the Universe is baryonic matter, which forms stars, planets and living organisms. The rest, comprising over 80%, is dark matter and energy.


    Dark matter is considered a theory because it has to exist - it just isn't defined. The current theory is instead an intellectual method to explain how the universe evolved from its initial state to the current distribution of galaxies and clusters, the structure of the Universe on a large scale. What we knew about black holes 35 years ago is almost all completely changed or even wrong now, and the same may happen with dark matter but, in any case, the current hypothesis is unable to satisfactorily explain some observations.

    Tom Broadhurst, an Ikerbasque researcher at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), explains that, "guided by the initial simulations of the formation of galaxies in this context, we have reinterpreted cold dark matter as a Bose-Einstein condensate". So, "the ultra-light bosons forming the condensate share the same quantum wave function, so disturbance patterns are formed on astronomic scales in the form of large-scale waves".


    This figure shows that a comparison of the distribution of matter is very similar on a large scale between wave dark matter, the focus of this research, and the usual dark matter particle.
    (b) This figure shows that in galaxies the structure is very different in the interpretation of the wave, which has been carried out in this research; the research predicts the soliton of dark matter in the centre surrounded by an extensive halo of dark matter in the form of large "spots", which are the slowly fluctuating density waves. This leads to many predictions and solves the problem of puzzling cores in smaller galaxies. Credit: Broadhurst

    This hypothesis can be used to suggest that all the galaxies in this context should have at their center large stationary waves of dark matter called solitons, which would explain the puzzling cores observed in common dwarf galaxies.

    The hypothesis also makes it possible to predict that galaxies are formed relatively late in this context in comparison with the interpretation of standard particles of cold dark matter. The team is comparing these new predictions with observations by the Hubble space telescope.

    This opens up the possibility that dark matter could be regarded as a very cold quantum fluid that governs the formation of the structure across the whole Universe.

    'Hubble Finds Ghostly Ring of Dark Matter'

    "Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope got a first-hand view of how dark matter behaves during a titanic collision between two galaxy clusters. The wreck created a ripple of dark matter, which is somewhat similar to a ripple formed in a pond when a rock hits the water."

    The 'pond' consists of dark matter. The galaxy clusters are moving through and displacing the dark matter, analogous to the bow waves of two boats which pass by each other closely. The bow waves interact and create a ripple in the water. The ripple created when galaxy clusters collide is a dark matter displacement wave.

    What ripples when galaxy clusters collide is what waves in a double slit experiment; the dark matter.

    Einstein's gravitational wave is de Broglie's wave of wave-particle duality; both are waves in the dark matter.

    Dark matter displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it relates general relativity and quantum mechanics.

    This opens up the possibility that dark matter could be regarded as a very cold quantum fluid that governs the formation of the structure across the whole Universe.

    Bingo!

    I just love it when modern theories end up supporting classical theories, in this case the Luminiferous Aether. Take for example any wave; none of them have any mass, instead the energy in any wave is found in the displaced mass of the medium through which it travels or simply exists. Every one knows the classical explanation for how an electromagnetic wave travels through a vacuum, its just that no self-respecting modern theorist (one that does not want to be ostracized and banished) has the gonads to rehash the classical explanation that was (supposedly) debunked by Michelson-Morely.

    Just because we have not yet seen any of it or proved any direct evidence of anything does not preclude its very existence, let alone prove its nonexistence.

    How about.... it's both a dark particle and a dark wave! Sounds familiar.

    And equally irrational cop-outs.

    "Known as “pilot wave theory” this line of thinking goes that, rather than electrons and other things being both quasi-particles and quasi-waves, the electron is a discrete particle that is being carried along by a separate wave. What this wave is made of no one knows."

    In a double slit experiment it is the dark matter that waves.

    In a double slit experiment using electrons, the movement of electrons are, by definition, an electric current that possesses electromagnetic fields and waves. In the case of using individual photons, well, (sarc on) I hate to remind everyone, duh! (sarc off) Light is also an electromagnetic wave, actually electromagnetic wave packets are NOT in reality actual individual substantive particles. In both of these cases the electromagnetic waves obviously must pass through both of the slits simultaneously as long as one of the slits is not inadvertently electromagnetically shielded by poorly designed sensors.

    Alternatively, there is no reason why the probability waves of the individual particles' spacial passages through the slits would not interact similarly in a spacial or temporal dimension as do simple observable waves are, with the detected projected waves displaying the modulation caused by the spacial distance between the slits.

    The electromagnetic wave propagating through both slits in a double slit experiment is a dark matter displacement wave.

    In a double slit experiment it is the dark matter that waves.

    Exactly, the wave energy is contained in the displaced mass or charge from the equilibrium of the medium through which the wave travels! In this case the medium is dark matter or dark energy a.k.a the luminiferous aether!

    We already know about dark matter, we just don't know that we know and it's nothing more exotic than primordial baryonic hydrogen and helium globules.

    Following the 'dark ages' when atomic hydrogen first appeared, gravity began to contract galactic-cluster-sized masses, forming which reionized from compressive heating, but isothermal endothermic 'reionization' of the universe occurred at nucleation points, like water droplets in rain clouds, forming densified gas globules that are the coldest objects in the natural universe because they're the oldest objects in the universe.

    Gobules in the spiral arms quickly become contaminated with metallicity (carbon monoxide, dust & etc.), blocking light such that they appear dark, but primordial molecular hydrogen and helium globules of galactic halos are invisible.

    Bok globules = dark matter

    The problem with your theory is that Hydrogen and Helium are dispersal mediums and therefore will always be detectable. However, I like the thinking, its like asking a fish what it is like to be wet when it has no possibility of differentiating wet from dry since it is always totally immersed within the medium.

    "Molecular hydrogen is very difficult to detect. None of its transitions lie in the visible part of the spectrum. It has no radio lines. The molecular hydrogen is a homo nuclear molecule and has no permanent dipole moment. Because of this it does not have rotation vibration spectrum."

    http://physicsanduniverse.com/detection-of-molecular-hydrogen-in-interst...

    Electronic transition produces spectral lines in the optical, infrared and UV. The transition between the vibrational states produces lines in the infrared. Transitions between the rotational states of molecules produce least energetic lines, in the microwave and radio region.

    You should not cherry pick your information (very common with today's modern "scientists"), as I previously stated (and verified in the article that YOU cited) hydrogen is a dispersal medium and will therefore ALWAYS be detectable.

    Duh, It's baryonic so OF COURSE it's not completely dark. Did you figure that out all by yourself?

    We already know about dark matter, we just don't know that we know and it's nothing more exotic than primordial baryonic hydrogen and helium globules.

    So what then is the point of contradicting your own comment?

    It is true about symmetry of dark matter as waves when time correction relativity is proportional to the square root of velocity the symmetry of waves is shown as in a plot in the article "NEW METHODS FOR TIME CORRECTION OF ENERGY, MOMENTUM, AND 
    HEISENBERG UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE" on page 7 >http://journalajst.com/sites/default/files/1214.pdf. Still the original question of symmetry of visible matter remains.
