AN ARMY OF SCIENTISTS ARMED WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF INSTRUMENTS IS STUDYING DARK MATTER FROM DEEP BELOW GROUND, AND FROM MOUNTAINTOPS AND FROM SPACE—

EARLY RECON KEEPS POINTING TO THE SIDIS MODEL

IN THIS ISSUE

1. Dark-matter filament may be evidence that dark matter consists of dark stars still organized as they were, and will be again, in their ordinary-matter shining phase

2. Axions emanating from the sun—may be further evidence that stars are the matter of dark matter

3. After the news below we present a dozen visualizations from chandra, alma, hubblescope and others, showing dark matter surrounding ordinary matter, as predicted by the sidis model

4. There follows an op-ed section in which we find two big problems with the bang theory—after that some thoughts, poetry and quotations, and finally a news archive

FIND DARK MATTER WITH SAME FILAMENT STRUCTURE AS ORDINARY MATTER15OCT2012" ... a team of astronomers has uncovered the presence of a filament of dark matter extending from the core of the cluster. The location of the dark matter is revealed in a map of the mass in the cluster and surrounding region, shown here in blue. The filament visibly extends out and to the left of the cluster core. Using additional observations from ground-based telescopes, the team was able to map the filament’s structure in three dimensions, the first time this has ever been done. The filament was discovered to extend back from the cluster core, meaning we are looking along it."

THE SIDIS COSMOLOGICAL MODEL

 

"We thus see that the universe is infinite, but divided into alternately positive and negative spaces of approximately equal volume, and that the apparent stellar universe is merely the positive section in which we are. "The Animate and the Inanimate, Chap. XII

 

The shapes of the sections are altered by harmonics: " ... either the medium pair of faces is caved in, and the largest and smallest bulged out somewhat less; or the largest and smallest pairs of faces are caved in slightly, and the medium pair of faces extremely bulged out."The Animate and the Inanimate, Chap. XII

 

 

" ... the negative sections must be completely surrounded by positive sections and must therefore be finite in all directions. By reversing this (since we have seen that all physical laws are reversible), it follows that any positive section must also be finite in all directions, and be completely surrounded by negative sections. ... We thus find the universe to be ... a sort of three-dimensional checkerboard, the positive spaces counting as white (giving out light), and the negative spaces as black (absorbing light)."The Animate and the Inanimate, Chap. XII

 

The following diagram is intended to represent the "first tremors of the Big Bang," but it illustrates the Sidis Model. In the images which follow, the blue areas represent the negative dark-matter sections, the red the positive ordinary-matter sections. In this particular diagram we see each type surrounding the other.

DARK STARS ARE THE MATTER OF DARK MATTER

An army of scientists is finding the dark-star sections of the universe predicted to exist by W. J. Sidis in 1925. A team using the ALMA large array of radio telescopes in Chile has just reported finding 15 more.

No one is investigating this dark-star possibility yet. Astronomers are at present assuming these galaxies:

  • are devoid of stars

  • consist of diffuse dark matter made up of unknown particles

  • are an early phase of galaxy formation

  • are of the early universe

  • are inefficient at forming stars

  • are galaxies whose light is blocked by dark nebulas or cosmic dust.

Sidis says:

"Our previous consideration on the production of radiant energy from the stars indicates that such production of radiant energy is only possible where the second law of thermodynamics is followed, that is, in a positive section of the universe. In a negative section of the universe the reverse process must take place; namely, space is full of radiant energy, presumably produced in the positive section of space, and the stars use this radiant energy to build up a higher level of heat. All radiant energy in that section of space would tend to be absorbed by the stars, which would thus constitute perfectly black bodies; and very little radiant energy would be produced in that section of space, but would mostly come from beyond the boundary surface. ... If we were on the positive side, as seems to be the case, then we could not see beyond such surface, though we might easily have gravitational or other evidence of bodies existing beyond that surface."The Animate and the Inanimate, Chap. XII

TWO BIG PROBLEMS WITH THE BANG THEORY

Θ

THE THEORY THAT THE UNIVERSE CAME INTO EXISTENCE IS NOT A SCIENTIFIC THEORY. Here's why. To test the theory we would need to observe the universe coming into existence. But there was nothing in existence before the Bang. Observation itself didn't exist. Therefore the coming into existence of the universe was not observable, and therefore not falsifiable. Therefore the Big Bang theory is not a scientific theory.

Θ

BIG BANG THEORY ASSUMES EARTH AT CENTER OF SUPPOSED EXPANSION

"Hubble's law is the name for the observation in physical cosmology that: (1) objects observed in deep space ... are found to have a Doppler shift interpretable as relative velocity away from the Earth; and (2) that this Doppler-shift-measured velocity, of various galaxies receding from the Earth, is approximately proportional to their distance from the Earth for galaxies up to a few hundred megaparsecs away. This is normally interpreted as a direct, physical observation of the expansion of the spatial volume of the observable universe."―Wiki

It says elsewhere in Wiki: "... the distance to the edge of the observable universe is roughly the same in every direction ... the observable universe is a spherical volume (a ball) centered on the observer ... Every location in the universe has its own observable universe."

It cannot be the case, however, that from every location in the universe the galaxies are receding. There can only be one location from which the galaxies are receding. For Hubble's "Law" the center of the universe is Earth!

Θ

 

HUH?

"The visible universe appears to have a radius of 14 billion light years because the universe is about 14 billion years old. The light from more distant objects simply has not had time to reach us."atlasofhteuniverse.com

Θ

"Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.”—Stephen Hawking wiki

THERE is a solitude of space,
A solitude of sea,
A solitude of death, but these
Society shall be,
Compared with that profounder site,
That polar privacy,
A Soul admitted to Itself:
Finite Infinity.

STARS IN SLUMBER

 

Let's take a spaceflight
into to a region of dark matter
a huge volume of dark stars
still in their galaxies and filaments
but not giving off light
 
They have shone brilliantly
in the distant past
and will yet again
alternating for eternity their
light-star and dark-star epochs

It is very hot where we are
heat having been building up
for millions of years
in reversal of the second law
 
To observers of the infrared
with their wonderful orbiting labs
this dark section appears as
just one giant heat source

They'll find a finer focus
so as to see as Sidis says
that dark galaxies are full of
stars in their heat-building phase

We’re looking for a perch
at just the right height above
and just the right distance from
a beautiful dark-star galaxy
 
Other observers find in this section
a huge amount of gravity
they think it is due
to a colossal black hole

But they will discover
they are detecting
the gravitation
of billions of dark stars
 
The orbiters and all of ALMA
will soon see more clearly
dark-star galaxies
and other dim structures

They'll find that old principle
of science still holds true:
"At first assume the unknown
to be like the known."

And we having perched ourselves
just right so we can see
a beautiful dark galaxy
full of hot stars and planets

We are home now
waiting for the news
that the Sidis Model has been verified.
It may take a while though.

Three Parting Thoughts

  • Physicists and astronomers are not cosmologists by default. Their expertise and excellence in some particular aspect of the universe doesn't automatically transfer to cosmology which is a branch of philosophy and thus requires a different kind of thinking.

  • There is no "echo" of the Bang. It's just more of the infinite universe.

  • The unknown usually turns out to be a lot like the known.

ALMA Telescope Finds 15 Extremely Dark Galaxies --Unidentified Until Now


TOKYO: June 2, 2013.

SCIENTISTS IN NASA DARK-MATTER CONTEST

 

The idea behind the challenge is to spur scientists, including those from fields outside astronomy, to come up with new insight into the problems of measuring dark matter and dark energy. Contestants are asked to solve galaxy puzzles involving millions of images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. A better understanding of the "dark side of the cosmos" may reveal new information about the very fabric and fate of our universe. ... The GREAT3 challenge is designed to improve methods for measuring weak lensing in preparation for future dark matter/dark energy missions. DATA HERE. NASA JPL, 11/26/ 2013

.
HE0450-2958 is an unusual quasar (a star-like object that may send out radio waves and other forms of energy). This one in particular has many large red shifts. HE0450-2958 has no visible host galaxy (a galaxy surrounding the quasar) detected around it. It has been suggested that this may be a dark galaxy in which a quasar has become active. However subsequent observations revealed that a normal host galaxy is probably present.wiki

Andrew Fazekas for National Geographic News—July 11, 2012
Eleven billion light-years away, strange, dark galaxies nearly devoid of stars have been finally spotted, according to a new study.Predicted in theory but never before observed,
these elusive objects appear to be similar to today's galaxies in that they're rich in gas. However, without any stars to light the gas, the galaxies have remained hidden from view. To find these cosmic ghosts, Cantalupo and colleagues took advantage of one of the brightest light sources in the cosmos—a quasar known as HE0109-3518.  nationalgeographic.com/news/2012

Wow! Dark Galaxies of the Early Universe Spotted- jul122012
For the first time, dark galaxies — an early phase of galaxy formation, predicted by theory but unobserved until now — may have been spotted.

---------------------

VIRGOHI21 is an extended region of neutral hydrogen (HI) in the Virgo cluster discovered in 2005. Analysis of its internal motion indicates that it may contain a large amount of dark matter, as much as a small galaxy. Since VIRGOHI21 apparently contains no stars, this would make it one of the first detected dark galaxies.

---------------------

11JUL2012 - For the first time, dark galaxies — an early phase of galaxy formation, predicted by theory but unobserved until now — may have been spotted. These objects are essentially gas-rich galaxies without stars. Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope, an international team thinks they have detected these elusive objects by observing them glowing as they are illuminated by a quasar. Because they are essentially devoid of stars, these dark galaxies don’t emit much light, making them very hard to detect. For years astronomers have been trying to develop new techniques that could confirm the existence of these galaxies. Small absorption dips in the spectra of background sources of light have hinted at their existence. However, this new study marks the first time that such objects have been seen directly.
