If enough civilizations across a universe that brewed trillions and trillions of coffee pots worth of liquid-caffeine delivery system (post-big bang) where the contents had aged undrank and cooled, could that explain dark matter and dark energy?
According to wikipedia, dark matter was invented in 1932 by Ian Oort to fudge his data to agree with his theory. Now it is accepted as the basis for about half of everything we think we know about the universe.
How could it be anything else.
A galaxy made of 99.9% dark matter
Researchers find a galaxy without dark matter
Astronomers find 2nd galaxy lacking dark matter
I wonder if these observations are compatible with the idea of WIMPs
. It would seem unlikely that a galaxy could be devoid of subatomic particles that exist in most other galaxies.
This might be an argument for dark matter being composed of MACHOs
. We know that it is possible to have a galaxy without ongoing star formation because of all the galaxies where star formation ended a long time ago. It seems reasonable that there could be areas where conditions inhibiting star formation were present from the start. Or galaxies with conditions that allow for much greater than normal star formation.
