If the brightest minds in science can't fully explain galaxy rotation, what chance does a layman have? Scientists introduce an unknown quantity called "dark matter" to try to bridge the gap in their understanding, but nobody has found dark matter yet, despite decades of searching. We've found evidence for it, but not the dark matter itself.

I am not a physicist and so therefore my thread is titled Laymans theory of gravity because it is an uneducated opinion, based simply on my objective sense of observation, and feelings of intuition of how gravity force is produced.
This interpretation isn't quite right. That's a mass-energy equivalence formula.
Firstly what is recognised in main stream physics is that that physical matter is actually an conglomeration of energy fields. The Theory of relativity established this in the famous maths physics equation Energy = Mass x Speed of light squared.
