    Well at least 50% of so-called ‘Dark Matter’ isn’t mysterious fairy dust bound together by witching spells. The 50% that has just been identified is just the normal sort of energetic krap that forms the rest of the Universe. link

    I’ll dance for joy when it is shown that the other 50% has a rational explanation such as non-energetic cosmic dust/asteroid clouds that does not require the invocation of more and more absurd kludges to fit the Dark Matter/Energy  fairy tale. Maybe some galaxies appear red-shifted because they are shining though a whole lot of red dust!

    Ed, although that is a fascinating breakthrough regarding Dark Matter, I was more interested in another link from the NS regarding Lyme disease:     http://tinyurl.com/lp98nst

    Yet another disease for which a working vaccine was developed after lots of expense and R&D, only to be discredited by public hysteria. And the disease-carrying agents are prevalent in some areas of the UK:     http://tinyurl.com/y8x8skno     -moving into other areas.

    If you live in a wooded area, or quite often visit woods and forests with a high proportion of mature Oak trees, look for acorns on the ground. A bumper crop means food for mice and mice carry the disease. They and the ticks are unharmed by Lyme, but the ticks transfer it to humans. The truly ridiculous fact is that your dog will already be vaccinated against it, but there is no vaccine for humans.

    As for Dark Matter, I have long been expecting certain Middle East religious leaders to declare that as the work of Satan, acting through the West. I also expect a further bulletin at some point, declaring that the scientists have discovered the whereabouts of the Half-Crown that I lost in 1953. My ear still feels the impact of our mam’s right hand!

    Redshift is explained in this article:    http://tinyurl.com/yc8xtkkm

    Basically, if an object is moving away from an observer, it is red-shifted. Moving towards the observer, it is blue-shifted. Put very simply, this is the basis of the “Big Bang” and the Expanding Universe Theory. If this new discovery changes that theory and means that the Universe may actually be in a Steady State, we should hear lots of mirth from the shades of some long-dead scientists, including Sir Fred Hoyle, who totally opposed the Big bang theory. Quotes from Sir Fred, a very intelligent man with a great SOH: –

    Space isn’t remote at all. It’s only an hour’s drive away if your car could go straight upwards.
     
    Things are the way they are because they were the way they were.
     
    There is a coherent plan to the universe, though I don’t know what it’s a plan for.

    Nasty thing Lyme disease. I once lived about 25 miles away from Lyme. Quite a wooded countryside with lots of water and deer everywhere. A friend of mine had one of the early diagnoses of full-blown Lyme disease. It causes all sorts of odd side effects – in addition to many of the usual symptoms he grew a damned great painful lymphoma on his forehead and the medical fraternity were completely puzzled. Following diagnosis it all cleared up with massive doses of antibiotics. However he complained that he had become subject to huge mood swings.

    I see other reports that they are now saying that 50%+ of Chronic Fatigue disease may in fact be an undiagnosed variant of Lyme disease.

    I have a sneaking susspision that gravity may be a high energy sub atomic particle that is actually PUSHING me onto the earth.

    My theory is that empy space is actually full of gravity particles flying around in all directions.

    If you were in open space then gravity would be mostly passing through you from all sides but enough of it would hit your atoms to generate an equal force in all directions.

    In open spase you would appear weightless because of the equal force but get near a massive object like a planet and it would act like a gravity shield on one side.

    The resault would be you would be pushed towards the planet just like it was attracting you.

    By the way this is something I thought up when I was alone and drunk 🤔

    Well, we always knew it was there?

    I’m queitly confident that gravity will destoy everything in the end.

    Newton thought light had weight and one of his pals on the back of this predeicted black holes.

    x2 truths that took hundreds of years to prove.

    W-o-F: gravity, like most forces in the Universe, is both a Wave and a Particle. The more that scientific research discovers about waves and particles, together with quantum physics, the clearer this becomes.

    Keith: light does indeed have mass (= weight, roughly) as light is composed of photons, and each photon is a particle, which is also a wave. Black holes and gravity waves are related, but just when you thought it was safe to venture into another galaxy: –

    Don’t forget the EmDrive!  That will solve your anti-gravity dreams.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that gravity and inertia have a relationship, as I have never seen a very satisfactory explanation of either. All the explanations I’ve seen are just definitions of their observed effects rather than a ‘Why they do what they do.’ That said I do like this little animation of both.effects

    And I thought my idea was unique 😭

    I have a theory two about waves as well though.

    As was mentioned above I too have a distrust of magic forces made of nothing.

    I am going to propose then that all waves need a medium to move through.

    This would mean that we are surrounded by static photons and electronagnetic particles that we cannot detect until we put some energy into them.

    I also think that like with water and air these particles do not have to move in waves, you can just shoot them like with a water pistol.

    I know you can just shoot an electron and they say you can shoot a single photon.

    Gravity waves would be easier to explain if space is full of gravity particles.

    Most of any mysterious quantum strangeness (e.g. action over a distance, tunneling, coupling etc) can be explained if you think of any particles such as photons as packets of waves with the energy of the wave packets following some sort of probability curve around the main path of the wave.

    Einstein infamously dismissed this way of looking at things by saying ‘God does not play dice’.
