In my theory, Dark Matter is caused by Quantum leakage (so to speak) over cosmic distances. Thus Dark Matter is explained by SUB-Quantum Theory. Matter waves, when they collapse over distances of the order of 10,000 light years, leave some of themselves behind: Dark Matter. The same effect could cause “fuel-less” propulsion. (And also Dark Energy.)

]]>My concept is that by limited, I mean limited to where the photon is. Obviously, if the photon goes out as far as x, so does the wave, BUT, the wave is listed to a distance from the energy centre of the photon. What that distance is is more interesting. The reason for this is as follows. If the wave is “something”, conservation laws means there can only be so much “something”, and hence as the particle/photon moves into new territory, where it has been the “something” has to decay. I believe the “something” is an energy field, largely because if the phase velocity equals the particle velocity, then there has to be something else equals to the kinetic energy. (That applies more to particles than photons, which, arguably, do not have kinetic energy.)

My answer is that what happens, **when it gets too big just so, is Dark Matter. And when it gets even bigger, a weakening of gravitons, hence Dark Energy**. One stone, Two birds.

To find really new science, one needs to be able to make and check, wild guesses. Same in all bold thinking and art or poetry, and all real creativity.

]]>I look forward to our thoughts. As you may know, I have my interpretation as well, in which the wave is definitely real, but for a particle not in a stationary state it has a somewhat limited spatial range. I know – nobody really believes that, but that has been my life. I must write an essay about some of the other failings of modern science that have simply been swept under the carpet. The real spirit of trying to understand science is actually somewhat moribund at present.

]]>Dear Partha: I am thinking about an answer. (I do have an answer, from what I know about nonlinear waves.) But the answer is so broad, I had no time to write it down.

Equations were discovered around 5 centuries ago, formally (earlier by 2 centuries if one goes to Buridan’s F = ma, which is implicit in what he wrote). We may need to discover something more general than equations (nonlinear Quantum equations already exist, have been tantalizing, but of little help…)

]]>I am not ignoring your comment, dear Ian, I am thinking about it. I am thinking to write a little essay about it. You put your fingers exactly where the problem is, and the cosmic grand canyon which separates me from normal physicists. The specific points you are making are worth answering directly, in the mood they are in, and I will do this (using the spin EPR a la Bohm-Bell; I know you have reservations about it). Meanwhile maybe those two help:

]]>The idea is this: 1) A Quantum Wave X (QWX) spreads to cosmological distances, say of the order of many light years. Why? Because there are not enough “particles” around to generate collapse (by encountering such another “particle”). So this non-interaction can happen only in a low density region.

2) Then a particle Y is finally encountered near the core of QWX. That launches the Quantum collapse, which propagates at very high speed (well in excess of 10^10 C).

3) However, in the case that QWX will produce Dark Matter, far-out regions of QWX cannot reassemble near the singularizing core, fast enough, because they are too far.

4) The resulting singularized core is a particle with the same characteristics as the one which launched QWX (this just assumes that the geometrical, and, or topological features that defined said quantum numbers are defined only towards the core, where QWX is highly non-linear. The fact that outer regions of QWX are linear is at the axiomatic heart of the present Quantum Theory; I am NOT touching that well-established science).

5) However, some of the linear, far-out part of QWX has been lost (during 3)). So the particle which has singularized has lost some of its mass energy. Reciprocally, some of the linear far-out part of the ex-QWX floats around in the low density region. Why? Because it has little intrinsic momentum left (“particle” Y has transmitted nothing to the far-out linear debris, because the latter is too far from the interacting core).

In a high density region (such as the Local Arm in which Sol is found). Such a tearing of QWX is much more unlikely than in particular far-out areas of a giant galaxy (giant like Dragonfly 44, or the Milky Way). Most QWX are not spread out enough to not reconvene entirely at the singularization (= collapse) point.

My theory is serious sci-fi relative to the conventional solutions so far hypothesized. However, it gives the connection between Dark Matter and particular regions right away (which I cannot imagine conventional theories doing). It also has obvious consequences on cosmological gravitons, weakening them, and thus giving a Dark Energy-like effect…

Killing all the birds with one stone? OK, just three birds (Foundations QM, DM, DE…)
