15) Dark Matter: Spacetime Cavitation

All prior posts in this Dark Matter series are summarized as follows:

Spacetime Cavitation Summary
  1. Galaxies begin as regions of Spacetime Cavitation resulting from Universal Expansion, often taking on whirlpool-like shapes, which reflect the underlying curvature and motions of Spacetime itself, upon and within which they are formed (see image below).
  2. Matter has a counterpart within the realm of non-material Spacetime. When subjected to extreme cavitation, an applicable unit of Spacetime is converted into its material counterpart (mass and/or energy). Said another way: Matter is a byproduct of Spacetime Cavitation. This counterpart is almost always hydrogen and/or radiation.
  3. With respect to galaxy formation, hydrogen produced as a byproduct of Spacetime Cavitation, which generally lacks sufficient mass to coalesce into stars by reason of its own gravitation when sparsely distributed, instead reacts to the Gravity Well within which it was produced, spiraling and coalescing to produce stars and the other visible objects within galaxies.
  4. Since newly formed galaxies are a result of cavitation, their structures are maintained via the combination of Spacetime Cavitation Gravitation and Mass Gravitation, where, on smaller scales such as solar systems, gravitation is based on mass (spacetime curvature resulting from the presence of mass), but on the larger scales of galaxies, structure is maintained within the underlying, curved Spacetime fabric (spacetime curvature caused by cavitation). In other words, visible matter rests upon the non-flat, preexisting Spacetime structures resulting from cavitation, like bits of Styrofoam floating upon a whirlpool of water draining from a kitchen sink (see this earlier post). This removes the apparent discrepancy between galaxy structure and the seemingly insufficient mass to account for it; and further removes the need for Dark Matter (unless we redefine Dark Matter itself as merely a vacuum of Spacetime, which may be useful. In this, it could be a second classification of gravity, but more on this later).
  5. There was no Big Bang as currently theorized. Matter is continuously produced at points of extreme cavitation as a result of the Universe's relentless expansion, analogous (in some respects) to the roiling bubbles produced when gases emerge from solution during extreme depressurization of water.
  6. Background microwave radiation thought to be remnants of the Big Bang is likely the result of galactic cavitation.

Definition of a Galaxy
A galaxy is a large region of curved spacetime, which typically takes the shape of a spiral, and often contains matter such as stars, stellar remnants, and an interstellar medium of gas and dust.

The next few posts in this Dark Matter series will address the points on this page in more detail. Along the way, we will also look at mainstream observations that seem to support these assertions, which will touch upon the origins of matter, galaxy formation, Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMB), the CMB Dipole Anisotropy, the blackbody Spectral Energy Distribution (SED), and more.

To be continued.
