    All Is Lava

    The original expansion, which is being viewed in the present as the farthest reaches of the universe, moved at the square of the speed of light. It was an eruption from another dimension, where the ultimate velocity is equivalent to a light-year every three minutes. The material following the front part of the flow was slowed down to a maximum of c by what the front created, which was space itself.

    Motto of Quantum Quacks: "If It's Weird, It's Wise"

    The Quantum Leap is an illusion that is easily explained as a re-route through the outside universe.

    Sheldon Cooper in a Chicken Coop

    If physicists cared at all about the real world and practical value, instead of being childish escapist misfits, we could have used the neutrino to invent a GPS Geiger Counter that would map every mineral and hydrocarbon deposit below the surface of the earth all the way to its core.

    Milky Way & Anti-matter...

    Milky Way teeming with black holes
    Fri, Apr 06, 2018 - The center of our galaxy is teeming with black holes, sort of like a Times Square for strange super gravity objects, astronomers have discovered.

    Scientists studying mysterious missing anti-matter
    Fri, Apr 06, 2018 - When the universe arose about 13.7 billion years ago, the Big Bang generated matter and anti-matter particles in mirroring pairs. So the reigning physics theory goes.

    How does anyone know how far half the way across the universe is? How far is all the way across?

    The Authoritarian Irrationalism of German Physicists Set the Stage for the Politics and Culture of the 20th Century

    Space itself is a substance, with gravitational pull. So it is not "dark matter" that explains the gravity above the limits of what regular matter pulls. Is this required false conclusion the only reason the dominant dogmatic physicists give for their claim that anti-matter exists?[/QUOTE]

    Astronomers Discover New Planet Not Orbiting Any Star
    August 06, 2018 - Astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that is 12 times the size of Jupiter, striking not only for its size but also for the fact that it is not orbiting any star.

    Nor with cosmologists. But wave/particle duality doesn't sit right with scientists, either. Neither do black holes, or the concept of gravity. But we can measure where dark matter and dark energy are and aren't, and we can measure their effects on matter.
