A New Theory on What Constitutes Dark Matter

The presence of "dark matter" in the universe is a recent theory that is based on the rotational velocities of the stars in galaxies, all of which appear to be moving at or near the same speed. This does not appear to conform to Newton's gravitational theory. The presence of some sort of unseen matter permeating the universe can presumably account for this phenomenon. Hence the recent proposition that "Dark Matter" must exist throughout the universe. However, the presence of another type of matter throughout the universe is not new. Lord Kelvin described it in a lecture at the Franklin Institure in 1884. He called it the "luminiferous ether" as an elastic solid similar in kind to that of elastic jelly and related to the nature of electricity. Now, after more than a century, we have the tools and knowledge to delve further into this ancient proposition, which may be the true answer.

Is dark matter electromagnetic in nature? The earlier theories about electromagnetic field waves were based on the presence of an ether in the universe. Is the ether dark matter? Perhaps. Here is a link to a website that presents a short history about the ether theories. The most recent theory is a particle theory in which the dark matter is believed to consist of Higgs Bosons , which are particles and therefore fit in with the theories of Quantum Mechanics. They believe that they have found the "shadow" of a Higgs Boson, which raises new questions. How is it possible for particles, which exceed all others in amount, block radiation and not be easy to find? Wouldn't this absorption heat up the entire universe? Is absolute zero not absolutely zero? How is it that all other forms of radiation are not blocked in a vacuum? Isn't this a rather shallow theory? But then, that is all they have to work with right now. It is a hypothetical particle based on hypothetical assumptions. They are neglecting the basic physics of a subject which I have spent many years of investigation, working all of the basic equations of physics against know measurements and using this information to solve several of the fundamental mysteries of science.

Is there an ether in the universe? Does that ether consist of Higgs Bosons? Some say that Einstein claimed that there is no such thing as an aether. However, in his later years he said that the most important remaining problem of science was relating matter to the electromagnetic field. We do know that our "vacuum" has properties similar to that of matter. It is electromagnetic, since it has both electric and magnetic constants associated with it. How is it that a "vacuum" has such properties? Although the ether theory was never disproved, present day physics organizations have no longer supported the concept of an ether in the universe and have move to mechanical theories. However, I deduced that the bending of the field waves must be caused by something. Yes they do bend, as you can see by plotting actual field waves as derived from the Mesny equations of electromagnetic radiation. If you can solve this seemingly simple electrical puzzle, you can prove to yourself that the field waves of moving electric charges must bend laterally. It is a simple exercise, but not what most would expect. I wrote my first book on the solution to the mystery of gravity back in 1997, illustrating the bending of field waves. I discovered later that this was supported by measurements as far back as 1936! The bending of electromagnetic field waves tends to support this ether theory, and also dark matter theory. Perhaps the most compelling fact supporting the existence of dark matter is the substance of the aether which is represented by the electric and magnetic constants e and u that seem to exist everywhere in the universe, and the bending of the field waves that seem to indicate they have a small amount of mass. The aether does have electromagnetic properties (permeability and permittivity), from which Maxwell deduced the speed of light. All matter has these properties, and the vacuum of space has these properities. Another strong argument for this substance appears at the end of the next page. On the other hand, not all of this measured data yet supports the Higgs Boson theory, although it does have some merit and deserves to be considered (is it worth the billions of dollars spent in investigating it?).
