I am a fantatical guitar-playing computer programmer who just happens to be obsessed with the rapidly growing understanding of our universe. But what is dark matter, and what is dark energy, and just what the heck is gravity. I woke up one might around 2:00 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep, and here's what I was thinking about.
Consider the following possibilities:
Could it be -- is it possible -- that our universe is a multi-stranded bubble of matter and empty space floating within a vast and perhaps (for lack of a better term) Infinite Ocean?
If so, maybe this "Infinite Ocean" is composed of the basic particles that make up all known matter. Within the Infinite Ocean there are ripples and currents created by the random concentrations of the basic particles into greater or lesser volumes of mass. As random concentrations of particles accumulate they somehow become extremely densely packed and hot until a point is reached to where the hot density erupts - and an instantly expanding universe is created.
Maybe Dark Energy is the effect of the Infinite Ocean pressing on and squeezing our multi-stranded bubble universe ever outward. As the squeezing of our universe continues, the outer fringes of the strands comprising our universe are pinched off into smaller mini-bubbles of matter, where the matter becomes more and more condensed within the mini-bubble and ultimately swirls into the last remaining super massive black hole within the mini-bubble, and back into the Infinite Ocean.
In this case, gravity might be the squeezing effect of the Infinite Ocean upon matter in our bubble universe. The center of the mass of an object or group of objects becomes the point at which all other matter is squeezed toward within it’s area of effect, thereby creating a “center of gravity” for any given object or group of objects. The bending of what we know as space/time, and the effects we see as Dark Matter, are the indentation of matter into the boundary between the Infinite Ocean and our bubble universe.
Under this "possible" scenario, the voids we see in our universe can perhaps be explained as areas where the layers of the Infinite Ocean have come together, squeezing out all matter.
Is any of this possible? Or is there direct scientific evidence that disagrees with the above-stated possibilities? I'm just curious.
