Dark matter, dark energy, lots of what is expected to be in the Universe is simply not to be found. 96& worth! What is THAT all about? Scientists have calculated that we can not find 96% of the Universe! What?
So, what have they found, that makes up the known 4%? Well, normal matter and normal energy, you know, like Iron, nickel, oxygen, and like heat, other radiations like gamma rays, x-rays, etc.
And, as Einstein figured out, Energy is simply mass (times the speed of light squared), you know e = mc2 ( i can’t do the superscript for the squared part),
Everyone knows that equation. What does it mean? Nothing more that say that energy and mass are interchangeable, more or less the same thing, just one is ‘solid’ energy (matter), one is just fluid matter (energy). So, you can calculate the energy value of a piece of matter and you can calculate the mass of a piece of energy, basically. By why is the speed of light in there?
What is the speed of light? Nothing can travel faster than light. Why? and what is light?
Light is simply radiation, you know, like from the Sun, which is visible. But x-rays are the same thing, just a different compressed version, but travel the same speed, but since its compressed compared to visible light, it has a lot more energy.
We know about visible light because we see it. We know about x-rays because of the way they interact with matter. We know about iron and oxygen because of how they interact with other atoms.
We know of the 4% because of their interactions.
So, the other 96% we don’t notice their interactions.
Do they have interactions?
Well, they interact with galaxies by affecting the expansion of the Universe, which, is how scientists calculated there is 96% missing in the first place.
They just don’t know what it is.
So, energy and matter are basically all there is in the Universe, according to modern theories. And they are simply flip sides of the same coin.
What if there is something else?
Not matter, like protons, or helium; nor energy like gamma rays or heat.
What could it be?
What sort of experiment could find it?
I have no idea!!
then I think about what thoughts and feelings consist of… brain matter (mass) and energy give rise to thoughts and feelings.
give rise to..
so, thoughts are born from matter and energy, but are they actually either? Is a thought a form of energy or matter? perhaps.
Is the feeling of love and compassion composed of matter or energy? perhaps.
But, perhaps not.
Thoughts are sorta floating around, love is, well, intangible, isn’t it?
When people talk of transcendence … what does this mean?
Is it possible that it relates to going past matter and energy?
Is this what makes up the missing 96% and pulls and/or pushed galaxies?
But that is what gravity does, and that is related to mass, to matter.
But could something else do this?
Well, sure. Nothing says it can’t. The laws of physics state that matter has gravity, but it doesn’t deny gravity existing in another medium.
But, of course, all this talk of mine is heresy and not real science, as you can’t test it at all.
Maybe one day it can be tested.
The Universe is vast, crazy, powerful, mysterious and doesn’t all add up, it just doesn’t make sense!
But, sitting under a full moon, with crickets chirping, what doesn’t make sense?
The Universe knows what it’s doing.
