I didn't comment on that (space being anti-matter) because it didn't make sense to me. The only reason space has the property of expansion is
because it is supposed to be filled with this mysterious dark energy. What my theory does is provide a precise explanation for what dark energy
actually is. Instead of calling it dark energy we call it negative energy (which in some sense is the same thing) and we say that only exists in
Space has the property of antimatter, because it reduces the effect of mass (and charge and magnetic force). If you have one kg of mass in a cubic
meter it has x attractive force, if its in 10 cubic meters the force is less. The same can be said for charge and any other force, its already
embodied in the inverse square laws of force.
You rightly point out that currently anti-matter is just oppositely charged particles like the positron and the things like atoms that can be made
with them. It says nothing about anti mass, which is what you are trying to get at with -ve space and -ve mass. Space already balances the mass imo
and we agree mass/energy can be extracted from space without invoking -ve space or mass.
Perhaps you should read the read the opening post again because you don't seem to fully grasp it. Pay close attention to the first image. The
negative energy causes the expansion (not dark matter) and it is spread out evenly between all the galaxies. It's the even distribution of that
negative energy which makes it seem like the universe is accelerating from our frame of reference, because any object twice as far away as another
object will have twice as much negative energy between it and us, thus the further away an object is, the quicker it will seem to be expanding. The
only place where space doesn't seem to expand it inside our galaxies, and that is one of the places where we don't find much negative energy because
it is repelled by our galaxies as shown in the diagram.
Any object twice as far away will have twice as much space between it. If expansion is an intrinsic property of space there is again no need to invoke
-ve mass/energy.It will also have twice as many QM fluctuations which imo are the cause of the inflation. We know of space, QM fluctuationsm and
expansion, it does not need further entities introduced. Afaik no one has invoke -ve mass/energy to explain QM flcutuations, but its possible I
Scientists have been trying for a long time to show that the vacuum energy is responsible for the expansion of space. The problem is that if you
actually calculate how much vacuum energy there should be and how much expansion it should cause, there is a huge discrepancy between the result of
that calculation and what we actually observe in the real world. That is why this is one of the biggest unsolved problems in physics, there is simply
far too much vacuum energy. That's we need this huge but opposite term to cancel out the vacuum energy. But this new term must not entirely cancel
out the dark energy, it must leave the amount we were looking for to account for the correct rate of expansion which we measure.
That is interesting, I did not know there were calcs to that effect. I don't even know how they would guess how much energy it would take to inflate
space tbh. I guess its linked to the reverse of the amount of mass needed to compress it. I don't personally think it takes energy to inflate space,
I think it happens as a result of the space being converted to fundamental particles with the inherent quality of mass.
you can hardly criticize the physicists for their calculation failing when you've not done them yourself, tho I appreciate the complexity and effort
required to form them. you may find you also have to little energy to expand the space, we will never know until the equations are formalized.
Fortunately quantum foam to mass conversions are essentially geometric transforms which are a little easier to fathom.
What my theory says is that overall the vacuum energy has no affect on space because they are canceled out by negative vacuum fluctuations in negative
space. What actually causes the expansion of space between the galaxies is what I was just talking about, the negative energy. Now I haven't actually
done any calculations to prove this all holds together so I would interested to see the results if anyone tries to do that.
I agree on that point, the vacuum energy would have no effect on space (well until converted to mass). If it did affect space, we would be living in a
very different universe, a rather floppy one
I can understand why you may feel that having a new negative space is undesirable but keep in mind that theories such as string theory require close
to a dozen new hidden dimensions in order for them work properly. The main reason for having negative space is to allow the existence of negative
energy without allowing it to interact with normal energy. The whole goal of negative energy is really to provide a mechanism for explaining how
energy can come from nothing, that to me is the most important thing. Any theory of physics which cannot explain where the energy came from is clearly
I am not a fan of string theory or any of its subsequent even more complex spin offs. I have watched it move to the center of thought and away with
little to no product over two decades. Its successes are weak. All they seem to have succeeded in doing with string theory is tying physicists in
I think most scientist think there will be an elegant simplicity to solving the problem of mass and ultimately unifying the forces. String, super
string, M-string etc seem to go in the opposite direction. Imo its just a framework for holding the math together and the incomplete theory forces
them to introduce other dimensions (which excites the alt crowds) and variables that have little to no bearing on any physical entity. Just my
