  • What is dark energy? What is dark matter? Well, if we knew exactly we would have a nobel prize – we know that they exist though. So what do we know about those strange things?

    Ok but is that the Tardis disappearing into the black hole?

    I don’t understand why dark energy can’t be momentum as we know we came from a big bang so surely dark energy is just the momentum from that expansion?

    I want to be wrong about this... why is so difficult to understand "empty Spacetime" get it? No Energy, no Matter, no even Time, nothing as in no Physics to be measure? All dark and empty ....mark these words

    Dark matter and energy is the 5th dimension, thats why they are invisible to us

    I wonder, could the exotic matter in black holes, just be dark energy?

    Could they also be normal matter and energy in another spatial dimension?

    "There is much more to learn" But the thing is we dont know Nothing. So we are not going to learn... universe is mind, and the confusing reflection of light makes mind being universe. We are all one. Nothing But love

    So basically Dark Matter and Dark Energy are in superposition - they both exist and don't exist all at the same time. My brain is also in a superposition

    what if the calculations where correct but it's just us that don't understand it ?

    And thus, even when we were but the dense singularity, we were not the dense singularity, but only compressed within by dark energy, by absence of matter, by the opposite of gravity. And, on the outside of this compression was matter compressing an outer shell of dark matter and wider webs of matter against dark matter against matter.The structure would be like an infinite honeycomb.

    Q. What caused the big bang?Science. A dark thing :DPathetic. Anything scientists cant explain. They add dark behind it. What a stupid religion this is

    Red shift always confused me. It's assuming we already know the where point the universe is expanding from, is it not?

    If a condensing star will do something condens space because there could dark matter and dark matter could be bubbles of gasses that exploded side by side and compressed (space air) that created the big bang

    Well every machines we’re using is actually made up of just matter, so it’s kinda expected to be able to detect matter only, and not dark matter. So that means we might need a machine that’s made up of dark matter in order to be able to detect the dark matter 😂

    Ancient one used to draw power from dark energy knowing that nobody can keep a track of it because it cannot be calculated...Moral of the story: You should put your marvel theory everywhere 🤣🤣🤣🤣
