So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.

1. MOST OF THE UNIVERSE IS MISSING Previous | Next

We can only account for 4 per cent of the cosmos

IN 1997, astronomers discovered that the universe is expanding at ever faster speeds. No one knows why this should be: until that point, everyone assumed the universe's expansion would be slowing down after the big bang. The best explanation we have – that some mysterious thing called “dark energy” is causing the accelerated expansion – is no explanation at all because we have no idea what this dark energy actually is.

We can say the same about “dark matter”. If you take our best understanding of gravity, apply it to the way galaxies spin, and you'll quickly see the problem: the galaxies should be falling apart. Galactic matter orbits around a central point because its mutual gravitational attraction creates centripetal forces. But there is not enough mass in the galaxies to produce the observed spin. The best response from physicists is to suggest there is more stuff out there than we can see, and that the gravity of this stuff is holding everything together. Just as they called the mysterious accelerating stuff dark energy, they call this mysterious gravitating stuff dark matter. We’ve been searching for dark matter for decades now, but we still have no idea what it might be.

That may be because dark energy and dark matter, which together seem to make up 96 per cent of the universe’s contents, might be a cosmic mirage. We may find out that the dark energy vanishes in a puff of logic when we rid our mathematics of certain assumptions – such as the assumption that the universe is the same in every direction. Dark matter might be a result of us not quite understanding how gravity works. The issue is still wide open.

Phil, thanks, it's the no 100% or 0% deal...?. My add is 8 years of analog/ Digital/ and in-circuit emulation on Honeywell's flagship process control systems - on the old A/D circuits had to adjust these potentiometers to .00001 on the current loop (I think) and they were tough. Had to get the feel - the Metrology guys had it. Then maybe a tap with the tweaker tool and .00001 - lock it with a drop of glyptol. They would drift. It was only 70% of freeworld gas production at stake.

Its so Red Planet - The Scientist turned Theologian to get the answers. If a VIC20 and Atari 2600 did this to me, what success falls to the Millenials. Soon the answers will come but I plan on seeing some of todays offspring floating in spice chambers getting ready to fold space from planet IX.

Okay - sorry for that abstract but you get this answer simply by plugging in the free will item. It is good, evil, and God;s will. If the science based answer is non-spiritual, er it cannot be.

Please permit me to further spew this from my convicted pov. No offense just my belief - If it detracts from the written word - time or attention wise - its evil. How is this discerned? A study of space as dark or light? Ask, Listen - compare to the teachings = God's will/answer etc or evil.

I realize the desire for properly phrased scientific replies here. I know the closer a persons lifeworks come to providing just that, the more "In the Gap" that person is - suppose this - one belief gets one everlasting life, yet the agnostic/ athiest, etc. by purity of purpose can do God's will successfully and burn forever. Mysteries and oracles. Notice TV content is quite the nasty of character now a days? The devil provides all sorts of "Guitar Hero" goodies to keep the count high on his side.

So what is lost to answer this? Paradox by default to not inherently be answered by us 99.99999% walking potentiometers? Got it. My girlfriend suffers seperation angst with me on the PC versus taking her to brunch. Done then. This is evil and chaotic and the author is thus "raising the roof" (glorifying God).

In final concideration of the possibility  "no coincidences" exist in God's creation (nor accidents, etc) the facts are: 1) I cannot recall how I found this neat site. 2) All coincidences backlinked at rebirth and explained themselves 3) Someone is meant to change from this. 4) I spared all from my theory of the Holy Ghost, Kenosis, and the missing part of the human mind - unused part as mapped against the OSI 7 layer networking model.

redpill said: God's written word - we are referencing a slice of known time - Yup obviously time is bigger. Astrology is real, etcetera. We were not willed to put T-rex bones back together and alas no benefit may come of it other than - like Jimmy Page's guitar playing we too may shovel embers for all time for the pleasure or waste of focus. There are no 500 faces of God spread to appease all takers of the 10,000 Mother'd mysteries. 

And perfect example - Prince runs the freakshow! Prince in earthly control of things that feel just so good to do. Maybe the Dark Stuff is the light and the TaiJi - Grand Ultimate - or yin and yang to some is applicable. I been there. And it is here. Who puts cherubs in thier home decore', same leader of order of cherubim angelic beings working the non-referenced data discussed here.

Your pseudo-philosophy doesn't even qualify as psuedo-science.  So you were a circuit board-plucker for a few years at Honeywell, is that supposed to give your prosyletizing rant some type of credibility?  It sure won't come from your sentence structure! 

Or am I taking a joke too seriously?  That must be it...

Redpill, I'm sorry, but I don't understand these posts. There is not enough structure or focus to make the posts meaningful to someone who does not share all your references. They come across as stream of consciuosness.
