I thought dark matter is called that because in cannot be seen? am I missing something?
The invisible Dark Matter is simply mass in other dimensions. You might ask what do those six extra spatial dimensions look like:
In M-Theory this Dark Matter is not only mass in other dimensions but they are in parallel universes (where the laws of physics might not be the same as ours). The only thing shared among those superimposed parallel universes is gravity. Add our universe to those parallel universes you get the Multiverse.
Right here on Earth, we have ghosts that are photographed and recorded through anecdotes. They are no more observed/measured than dark matter....but one is science, the other isn't.

This is incredible.
I wonder if this galaxy has a super massive black hole in its centre, as many galaxies made largely of regular matter do, or if it formed around some other concentration of mass, as yet unknown to science.
This dark matter issue is one which fires the imagination, without a doubt, and in ways that mark interest in it apart from interest in other masses and structures in deep space.
I will be awaiting further data with great anticipation!

He admits there are extra dimensions outside the ones we know, that's a start.
The problem with real professors is they can't communicate with Average Joe.
Since i am somewhere in between, i have gotten used to translating their rhetoric into laymans terms
At least i hope so
Energy=Mass, then the 2 are mutually interchangeable"
I can understand that idea ... With your atom bomb example
That mass can potentialy be energy when the conditions are right or put in place
Is it that stars follow this principle ... Jupiter being referred to as failed star by some
It being too small a mass to ignite/fuse
Pressure then to me comes into play as in the collapsing of nebulous material falling prey to gravity
Please forgive me If I sound dumb that is because I am in respect of science
This dark matter/dark energy idea
Does this mean that space itself is full of "stuff" which we know is there
because the laws of physics are flawed in some way in explaining what consists or holds Galaxies together
Does this apply to Solar systems also meaning other star systems
So it is assumed that something else is at play and science calls this dark matter or dark energy
I wont ramble on just wanted to know if I am on the right lines or am are flying off at a tangent through ignorance

It just seems so unscientific.
