Is it time to understand dark matter fills 'empty' space and is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it, including 'particles' as large as galaxy clusters?
Forms of dark matter like that have always been considered. Forms of dark matter referred to as Baryonic Dark Matter include such objects as neutron stars, black holes, white dwarfs and brown dwarfs, collectively known as massive compact halo objects (MACHOs).

Note on terminology: By definition an object as large as a galaxy cluster cannot be referred to as a particle since a particle is defined to be a very small, perhaps even point-like, object. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Particle
Quote
A particle is a minute fragment or quantity of matter.[1] In the physical sciences, a particle is a small localized object to which can be ascribed several physical or chemical properties such as volume or mass.[2] They vary greatly in size, from subatomic particles like the electron, to microscopic particles like atoms and molecules, to macroscopic particles like powders and other granular materials. Particles can also be used to create scientific models of even larger objects, such as humans moving in a crowd.
The later case, i.e. "humans moving in a crowd", refers to instances when the object spoken of, in this case "humans", are small compared to the system being considered. Not all particles of dark matter cannot be as large as a galaxy because dark matter is responsible for the motion of starts in our galaxy as well as other galaxies. Dark matter in our galaxy has yet to be detected.

What ripples when galaxy clusters collide is what waves in a double slit experiment, the strongly interacting dark matter which fills 'empty' space.
In a double slit experiment a quantum mechanical wave, which is purely a mathematical object, impinges on the double slit which then forms two separate waves which interfere on the detecting screen as waves will do.  But no such thing at all occurs when galaxies collide. All that happens is that the objects in the galaxies interact via the gravitational interaction. No wave properties such as interference exists in such a collision.

Quote from: stacyjones
Einstein's gravitational wave is de Broglie's wave of wave-particle duality, both are waves in the strongly interacting dark matter.

Dark matter displaced by matter relates general relativity and quantum mechanics.
That is 100% incorrect. Where on earth did you ever get such a notion from? The effects of dark matter are purely classical. There exists no quantum mechanical effects associated with dark matter.

A particle is a moving singularity which has an associated wave in the aether.


Each particle is an independent singularity, which has an associated interaction with electromagnetic radiation.

Wave–particle duality
The modern theory that explains the nature of light includes the notion of wave–particle duality. More generally, the theory states that everything has both a particle nature and a wave nature, and various experiments can be done to bring out one or the other. The particle nature is more easily discerned using an object with a large mass. A bold proposition by Louis de Broglie in 1924 led the scientific community to realize that electrons also exhibited wave–particle duality.

In de Broglie's double solution theory wave-particle duality is a moving particle and it's associated wave in the "subquantic medium".

The "subquantic medium" is the aether.

There are no such things as virtual particles, with mass, popping into and out of existence out of nothing.
If by that you mean that virtual particles dot not have an existence in the way electrons and photons do then I agree. But that was never what virtual particles were intended to be used for. They are merely mathematical entities which are used to help calculate certain things in particle physics.

Robert B. Laughlin, Nobel Laureate in Physics, endowed chair in physics, Stanford University, had this to say about ether in contemporary theoretical physics:
It is ironic that Einstein's most creative work, the general theory of relativity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise [in special relativity] was that no such medium existed [..] The word 'ether' has extremely negative connotations in theoretical physics because of its past association with opposition to relativity. This is unfortunate because, stripped of these connotations, it rather nicely captures the way most physicists actually think about the vacuum. . . . Relativity actually says nothing about the existence or nonexistence of matter pervading the universe, only that any such matter must have relativistic symmetry. [..] It turns out that such matter exists. About the time relativity was becoming accepted, studies of radioactivity began showing that the empty vacuum of space had spectroscopic structure similar to that of ordinary quantum solids and fluids. Subsequent studies with large particle accelerators have now led us to understand that space is more like a piece of window glass than ideal Newtonian emptiness. It is filled with 'stuff' that is normally transparent but can be made visible by hitting it sufficiently hard to knock out a part. The modern concept of the vacuum of space, confirmed every day by experiment, is a relativistic ether. But we do not call it this because it is taboo.

Matter, quantum solids and fluids, a piece of window glass and 'stuff' have mass and so does the dark matter.

Dark matter fills 'empty' space and is displaced by the particles of matter which exist in it and move through it.

The vacuum energy is the chaotic nature of the dark matter which fills 'empty' space.

The following video is analogous to the chaotic nature of the dark matter and how it causes the Casimir effect.

No that video shows water and a couple of sticks, it does not show dark matter or dark energy or aether or anything to do with space.

No its some water and a couple of sticks and some really vivid imagination.

They're plates, not sticks. And it's analogous to the chaotic nature of the dark matter and how it causes the Casimir effect.

No it not analogous, the design is to use the water has a medium so the plates can couple. It is a man made thing to make plates close the gap, it means nothing accept exactly what it is, I place two magnets underwater and they adjoin, it means nothing more than the attractive force of the magnets to each other.


You science types really get carried away with things that mean nothing, dark energy and dark matter is not even detected or really exists at this time, why are you arguing that ''harry potter''  is real and talking dogma?

You state dark matter, something that at this time is not real, has mass, a rather bold and imaginary statement.

The stars in the outer spiral arms are orbiting the galactic center too fast as can be explained by the particulate matter in the galaxy. That's one of the reasons why dark matter was hypothesized in the first place.

Most physicists think dark matter is a weakly interacting clump of stuff that travels with the matter. That is incorrect. Dark matter fills 'empty' space and is displaced by matter.

The state of displacement of the dark matter is curved spacetime.

The state of displacement of the dark matter is gravity.

The dark matter displaced by the Earth pushing back and exerting pressure toward the Earth is gravity.
