Some time ago I created a thread describing my theory of
Negative Energy & Negative
Space. Since that time there have been some interesting developments which I thought were worth sharing. If you don't have time to read my
other thread, let me give a very brief summary of the idea: if the universe created an equal amount of negative and positive energy during the big
bang, then the universe could have come from nothing because it has zero total energy. Dark energy, the energy which causes the space between all
galaxies to expand, behaves exactly like negative energy would behave, because all energy has a mass associated with it, and anything with a negative
energy must also have a negative mass and therefore negative gravity, so if you fill space with lots of negative energy the negative gravity will
cause space to expand.
Mainstream science doesn't have an explanation for dark energy, they say it could be caused by vacuum fluctuations but the numbers simply don't add
up. In this theory dark energy is exactly what it looks like: negative energy. We cannot actually see dark energy, but we know it must exist because
the universe is undergoing metric expansion. In my other thread I propose an idea called negative space, and I say that negative energy (aka dark
energy) must exist in this space and that's why we cannot detect it from our positive space. If you want more details on that idea then read the
other thread, but the exact way it works isn't important for this thread, all that really matters is that we have an equal amount of positive matter
and an equal amount of negative matter, and that they are unable to interact with each other, except via the force of gravity.
So now we have this basic framework set up we can ask how would the dispersion of negative energy look if we could actually see it. Well for a start
we know what our positive matter universe looks like, because we just need to look out at the sky to see it. And what we see are huge clumps of matter
separated by vast distances, because gravity pulls all the positive matter together. Since negative matter/energy has negative gravity, it should
behave in the exact opposite way, meaning that negative matter is repelled from other negative matter and forms a gaseous cloud state of negative
matter. Now I also mentioned that positive matter and negative matter can interact in only one way, via the force of gravity (the reasons for which
are also explained in the other thread), so what will happen when we take everything into consideration?
Well my original theory predicted that the positive matter will still condense into clumps of larger matter, and that negative matter would still form
a gas like state, but I also predicted that the positive matter wouldn't get too close to the negative matter, which would result in a cavity/void
around the clumps of positive matter where there was no negative or positive matter. So the space between all galaxies is filled with the gas cloud of
negative matter, but there are spherical cavities in the cloud where our positive matter galaxies are located. Now since negative matter has negative
mass, removing negative matter is the equivalent of adding positive matter, so if you have a cavity of negative matter surrounding galaxies, it makes
those galaxies look like they have more mass than they really do, explaining away dark matter.
Dark matter (not to be confused with dark energy) is the theoretical form of matter which we believe causes the mass of galaxies to be much higher
than the amount of visible matter they seem to contain. We know they have a much higher mass because mass bends space-time and causes light to curve
around large objects. The more massive the object, the more it bends. So we need dark matter to explain why light bends so much around galaxies which
don't seem to have enough visible matter to account for their total mass measured by seeing how intensely light is curved when passing by the object.
However this theory totally explains away dark matter and it does it in a very elegant and natural way. We simply say that dark matter is a
gravitational illusion caused by a void of negative matter around our galaxy.
Taking this approach makes it possible to easily explain away many unsolved problems in science, but I never really had any mathematical model or
simulation to prove it might possibly be right, well not until now. I recently created a macro-scale matter simulator to see how negative matter and
positive matter would behave if put together and allowed to interact only via the force of gravity, and the results were quite amazing. Now as a
programmer I always cringe when I hear scientists talking about how they simulated the evolution of the universe on their computers, because I
understand the sheer computational complexity of the problem and I understand how even the smallest tweak in the algorithm can change everything. The
truth is it takes a super computer even to calculate the behavior of a few small molecules using real world physics.
However, I'm only simulating things on the macro scale, meaning I'm looking at how large objects such as planets or galaxies interact, and at such
large scales things like quantum mechanics and forces which act on elementary particles become virtually irrelevant and all I need to worry about is
how the objects are gravitationally attracted to each other. In my simulation I simply used classical motion mechanics and the formula for calculating
the gravitational attraction between two objects with some mass. In my simulation I start with an equal amount of positive matter and negative matter
placed randomly, my goal was just to see how they behave and evolve when placed together so that I could prove my theory has merit, I wasn't trying
to simulate the entire big bang process because it's just not a feasible task for a classical computer.
The following images show the result of my simulation, with positive matter in yellow and negative matter in blue. Keep in mind this is using only
1000 positive "particles" and 1000 negative "particles", and I haven't even tweaked variables like big G to make it behave the way I wanted. In
fact the value of big G in these simulations shown below is still set to 1, but it already seems to work quite well.
