Then again, in the last few days I read scientific speculation that dark matter, i.e. the Dark Universe, may have existed prior to the big bang. From my earlier speculation this leads to the possible conclusion that our universe was created by intelligence from the already existent Dark Universe, which might make us something along the lines of what we would call a virtual reality. Oh no! Even

I recently read an article from an American University, unfortunately I don't remember which one. It suggested that the most accurate way of describing certain mental processes was if the thought occurred and then everything ceased for a period before the response. This sounds rather like a digital process. A bit like our receiving and watching one television channel out of the 500odd being trans

One way or another a hell of a lot of the Universe is missing. For the sake of argument lets say 95%. It may be less, it may be more but that's a very convenient working figure. I shall call the missing "bit" the Dark Universe. An appropriate name for a number of reasons. That 95% is the "real" universe. Being that much in the majority it has to be. This dark universe has p

No response huh? Well, here goes. As the stars aren’t flying apart in each galaxy there must be at least 8 times as much matter as we can see. Dark Matter. If string theory is correct there are eleven dimensions. At least 8 times as much as we can see. Whatever the reason, or amount, there’s a hell of a lot missing. Logic therefore dictates that the “missing” matter/ energy/ “whatever it is”

So there was this mind, or minds, evolving over countless ages, acquiring knowledge but unable to do one thing that it wished as it did not possess any matter. Manipulate the matter in the most 'solid' part of existence. Then one creature started evolving in that area that showed promise. There was a way of entering it's mind, manipulating that mind and keeping a record of all it's thoughts an

I agree it should be moved to Inner Space. I started it here because I wished to make the point about the real universe but I have now digressed sufficiently to warrant the change.

So why should the 'real' universe trigger so many religions in our universe? Possibly they wanted to keep most of the brightest minds in our universe occupied doing something which kept them away from discovering and debating the real truth. Outrageous! But it worked for many centuries.

I had wondered about starting this topic in Inner Space but eventually decided against. It really is halfway between the two so could be included in either. I hoped it might just start one qualified person to consider the possibility of the universe I have postulated. It is, after all, quite a bit simpler than the infinite number of universes being put forward by many highly qualified scien

No, I was trying to ignore you. Any preconceived ideas on a subject such as this are purely a nuisance. Since you disagree with the majority of current scientific thinking I suggest you start your own topic to discuss it. Good luck

I agree that this suggestion is quite outrageous but it is the only one I have ever found which explains all of life's apparent mysteries; all the subjects banned under this section of GHMB, and a few others. Apparent miracles and ancient massive structures among them.

There has recently been some discussion of the fact that a number of composers have woken with complete songs in their mind and have had to get them written down before they forgot them. These are often accompanied with a comment along the lines of "Isn't the subconscious mind a wonderful thing?" Surprisingly the accompanying comment is never along the lines of "I wonder who c

Science has been striving, most successfully, towards the truth. Having now found it there seems a great reluctance to take the final step. 95% of the universe is missing apparently. I am reminded of the discovery of DNA when only a small percentage of its purpose had been found. So the rest was dubbed Rubbish DNA. Arrogance indeed. Can I suggest that the missing 95% IS the universe. W

Science really is pretty good at working out how "our" universe works. It has been so good that it has worked out that "our" universe is only 5% of all that is. Or possibly 15% or some other figure yet to be precisely determined. Religion is our best attempt to figure out how the other 95% and its connection to our 5% works.

Or possibly it's just that we happen to be the species which developed enough for our higher selves to be tempted to enter part of themselves to experience living in our very restricted section of the universe. That would explain a few things which don't appear to fit the usual model.

And it's quite possible that, if string theory and it's eleven dimensions are correct, that it never will be detectable by us.

Not yet going back to explain my thinking but proceeding forward. Where the hell is 95+% of the universe hiding. I read an article recently which suggested that the way part of the brain worked is best explained by a model which had an event occurring and then absolutely nothing for a period of time and then the response. Sounds digital to me. Think of one TV Channel among hundreds being si

OK boys and girls, Lets explain the lot, aliens, UFO's, ghosts, reincarnation, the lot. All that we know exists, stars, planets, dust, us adds up to about 4.5% of the total energy and matter that exists. Scientists call it the baryonic universe. Which leaves the other 95.5 (ish) per cent. Logic dictates that that IS the universe and that we are just the attachment on the end. I'll call it t

I have been considering the answers and what I should or should not abandon when along comes this lovely article in Science Daily. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/04/160412160346.htm It suggests that "consciousness arises only in time intervals of up to 400 milliseconds, with gaps of unconsciousness in between." Since it is consciousness which we use to consider the universe

With 96% of what we have, thus far, considered the universe missing I feel it is only reasonable to consider that that 96% is the universe and to apply a bit of thought to what might be the nature of and reason for our little bit. Are we a ‘virtual reality?’ Or are we a hologram? If either there must have been and might still be a creator or creators. Even more interestingly are we just cre

It comes from the occasional (or,indeed not so occasional) contacts and subsequent misinterpretations of those contacts with the real universe. Science has now found the real universe and named it either dark matter or dark energy. It consist of around 95% of all that is. Whilst the analogy is inaccurate you might view our 5% as what we might call a virtual reality. Some are suggesting it is a

Since 95% or so of the universe is 'missing' it would seem reasonable to assume that that 95% IS the universe and that we are just the appendage. That would certainly explain quite a lot!

No. It's a new site occupying the whole width of the strip of land which joins Skara Brae and the Stones of Stennes. An area the size of 5 football pitches, 250 x 100 yards. Totally untouched, it would appear, for 4,300 years. 500 years older than Stonehenge. It's relation to the Book of Enoch is that it is said Enoch went to a land where the day was twice as long as the night and was informed o

A fascinating programme on BBC2 just now. Probably available on BBC i-player some time tomorrow. The people who occupied this complex appear to have 'thrown in the towel' about 4,300 years ago. They erased their complex and had a feast of some 600 cows at about this time. It strikes me that that is just what they may have done if they were expecting annihilation. It appears to match exactly the s

THe most logical explanation of the term dark ages that I have seen was that the original Krakatoa erupted in 539 ad. producing a 32 mile wide crater. That would have put enough dust into the atmosphere to produce a 3 or 4 year night. Hence the Dark Ages were just that. Survival alone would have put back any advances made by, maybe, hundreds of years. All the other nuances about dark ages were ad

Not really, just a natural reaction. If you had spent years of your life researching and believing one thing any contra ideas are bound to irritate you. If as an Egyptologist you are told that the carbon dating of the great Pyramid suggests that the top is 2950bc and the base 2750bc and that it was, therefore, reconditioned from the top down 400 years before you thought it was built, I would s

I can envisage a people, living contentedly for years beyond memory, suddenly experiencing a massive earthquake, a phenomenon not unknown in that part of the world. Having recovered themselves to some degree they notice that the sun would have appeared to change it's orbit, either slightly or even substantially.
