Shots At The Dark

Dark Matter/Dark Energy Alternatives:

- Spacetime vector proportionate to its cumulative quantity

- Cosmic suspension in metaverse; metaversal contraction/condensation "pulls" universe into expanding & accelerating

- Strange matter cosmic perimeter made to accelerate by adjacent phenomenon

- Granular Planck-scale space has spatial granules which are accelerating toward an ambient diameter (at a rate which presumably will not violate the speed limit of c)

- Acceleration is result of accumulating wave-function collapses

I find the absence of alternative theories to explain cosmic acceleration both disturbing & sad.

Dark Matter & Dark Energy are already being employed to "explain" astronomical observations, but I have a hunch that the wait for them to spawn any robust new scientific progress is going to be a doozy.

Sexy plus evidence is genius; sexy minus evidence is a kludge.

Very much like the alternative theory cited by Neil deGrasse Tyson as his favourite: dark matter is an anomaly created by "gravity leakage" from an adjacent - & (gulp) interactive - alternate universe.
