i've been reading about dark matter lately and stumbled onto a paper (http://milesmathis.com/dark2.pdf) by some chap named miles mathis who makes the following extraordinary claim:
"...it means that the electron is emitting about 35,000 times its own mass every second, as charge. It also means the proton is emitting about 19 times its own mass every second. If we give this charge to real photons instead of to virtual photons,
we have a simple way to estimate the total mass/energy of the photon field. It is 19 times the atomic field, or 95% of the total mass/energy of the universe."
he supports that claim with the following equations (formatting a bit dodgy, but 10^-19 is 10 to the negative nineteenth etc...further he claims the first two equations are well known and he simply combined them to get the third):
e = 1.602 x 10^-19 C
1C = 2 x 10^-7 kg/s
e = 3.204 x 10^-26 kg/s
my question is twofold, 1) are these in fact well known equations and 2) could finding the missing mass of the universe possibly be this simple...seems someone else would have found it by now...or is this bloke bonkers? Thanks,
