The Pivot Theory - a New Model of the Universe
« on: 10/07/2015 16:36:40 »
Hello everyone,

My name is Arieh Sher. I've recently come up with a new theory regarding the structure of the Universe, which I call the "Pivot Theory".

The pivot theory is very simple, and attempts to explain several observed, yet unsolved, issues in cosmology.

These issues are:
   The lack of evidence of the existence of dark matter in the universe.
   The rotation curve flattening of stars in Galaxies, contradicting classic mechanics.
   Universe expansion - some Galaxies are approaching the Milky way, rather than drifting away, which conflicts with the Big Bang theory.
   If the Universe is isotropic, how come that observations show that the number of Galaxies rotating Clock Wise differs significantly from Galaxies rotating counter Clock Wise?
   What is the reason for the shape of spiral Galaxies? According to classic mechanics, by now, the spirals must be tightly wind up.


The Pivot theory explained:
   The entire visible Universe has a ring shape that is rotating around a Black Hole which has an enormous mass (calculated by cosmologists to be ~6 times the mass of the visible Universe), aka "the Pivot".
   The dark matter resides inside the Pivot, which is why it has yet to be found, and probably never will be.
   Apart from solving the issue of the dark matter, this theory has a mathematical model that explains additional cosmology issues mention above.

For the Pivot theory, described in details, please visit: newbielink:http://www.pivot-theory.com/ [nonactive]

Thank you,

Arieh.

P.S., I'm a newbie to posting on forums, so please excuse any mistakes. Today is my first attempt at such things.

Welcome to the forum!

I don't know enough about cosmology to address most of these questions you post. However, I am confused by this one point:
   If the Universe is isotropic, how come that observations show that the number of Galaxies rotating Clock Wise differs significantly from Galaxies rotating counter Clock Wise?

How do you define clockwise and counter-clockwise? As I understand it, if one observer views the rotating galaxy from one side and sees that the galaxy is rotating in a clockwise fashion, then another observer on the other side would necessarily see it as rotating in a counter-clokwise fashion.

It may still be interesting if most of the galaxies rotate clock-wise from our perspective, but since we can see galaxies in all directions from our planet, this would only be meaningful if we were in some important cosmic plane--for instance, if most of the galaxies visible to the north of us are seen as rotating clockwise, and most of the galaxies to the south of us are seen as rotating clockwise, then actually, these two sets of galaxies are rotating opposite to each other. If the galaxies rotations were random, then we would expect to see a random distribution in both the northern and southern skies; if the galaxies were mostly rotating one way, we would expect to see opposite behaviors in the northern and southern skies; and if there were some pattern in which the northern galaxies rotated one way, and the southern galaxies rotated the opposite way (such that both appears to be clockwise to us), then there must be something special about our north-south differentiation, which would certainly be noteworthy (but I suspect that this is not the case)

"if we were in some important cosmic plane"
(Sorry, haven't figured out how to quote, yet...).

You are correct. The fact that we, from the Milky Way, see CW and CCW Galaxies is because we are in some cosmic plane. This is exactly what the Pivot theory claims.

If you'd like to read some more about this, I've found this site to be concise and clear:

Oh, great. Not yet another person with a new theory of the universe. It seems like we get a new one ever week, all of them suffer from a lack of understanding of cosmology and/of physics in some way.

What you've stated below are not unsolved by any means. This is the kind of misunderstanding that I referred to above.

There is no lack of evidence. In fact when almost all theories are invented they are based on observations of the universe. Those observations then become the evidence of the theory invented. So there is no lack of evidence since the rotation curves of galaxies are the evidence. Dark matter could very well be particles that don't interact by the electromagnetic interaction but by the gravitational interaction only. Or they could, in part, consist of things like black holes and brown dwarfs.

   The rotation curve flattening of stars in Galaxies, contradicting classic mechanics.
The flattening of a rotation curve doesn't contradict classical mechanics. The reason for the flattening is that there is matter in the universe which doesn't give off light such as black holes.

Quote from: AriehS
   Universe expansion - some Galaxies are approaching the Milky way, rather than drifting away, which conflicts with the Big Bang theory.
That is most certainly not a contradiction. There is still a gravitational interaction between galaxies and that force acts to attract galaxies together and sometimes cause them to collide. This force competes with the separation of galaxies due to the  expansion of the universe. See: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-can-galaxies-collide/

If you want to know why then read this:

   What is the reason for the shape of spiral Galaxies? According to classic mechanics, by now, the spirals must be tightly wind up.
When matter condenses into galaxies the total angular momentum is rarely zero resulting in matter rotating in a circle around the center of the galaxy.

If we consider black holes as our dark matter source we have a problem. Since the compact object has the same radial field strength distribution as it had before collapse. This field strength would need to increase as the mass collapsed to explain dark matter. If we consider some as yet undiscovered particle then we need to determine why it should be stable and does not decay. What value of energy does it require to make it so stable. An awful lot of particles have very short lifetimes because decay is not prohibited. Finally, why does dark matter not operate in the solar system to affect planetary orbits? What is it about dark matter effects in a galactic system that only affects global rotation while leaving solar system orbits undisturbed.

There is absolutely no justification for that.  Black holes can be dark matter for two important reasons; (1) they're "dark" and (2) they have mass. That's all that's needed to be dark matter. And they weren't necessarily stars that underwent collapse. They could very well be primordial black holes. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primordial_black_hole

There's no reason that we "need" to do determine that.

Energy is not what is required to make a particle stable. Where on Earth did you get such an idea from?

Quote from: jeffreyH

Very simple. If they're black holes then the do affect orbits. We just see it doing it for our system. If they were part of our system then we'd observe it. Also if its particles then its too week to do it locally. It's only when integrated over the large expanse of space that it contributes.

Quote from: jeffreyH

Why would it? The density of dark matter is not enough to affect those orbits.

Griffiths - Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics.

Chapter 2 Page 79 Revised, second edition.

"One of the most striking general properties of elementary particles is their tendency to disintegrate; we might almost call it a universal principle that every particle decays into lighter particles, unless prevented from doing so by some conservation law. The photon is stable (having zero mass, there is nothing lighter for it to decay into); the electron is stable (it's the lightest charged particle, so conservation of charge prevents its decay); the proton is presumably stable (it's the lightest baryon, and the conservation of baryon number saves it - likewise conservation of lepton number protects the lightest of the neutrinos). By the same token, the positron, the anti-proton, and the lightest anti-neutrino are stable. But most particles spontaneously disintegrate - even the neutron, although it becomes stable in the protective environment of many atomic nuclei. In practice, our world is populated mainly by protons, neutrons, electrons, photons, and neutrinos; more exotic things are created now and then (by collisions) but they don't last long."

The question of prohibited decay paths does relate to energy.
