if, in fact nothing else whatever were observable than the shape of the space occupied by the water as it varies in time, we should have no ground for the assumption that water consists of movable particles. But all the same we could characterise it as a medium.
the state of the [ether] is at every place determined by connections with the matter and the state of the ether in neighbouring places
The emerging picture of the dark matter halo of the Milky Way is dominantly lopsided in nature.
Our data strongly support the idea that the gravitational potential in clusters is mainly due to a non-baryonic fluid, and any exotic field in gravitational theory must resemble that of CDM fields very closely.
Imagine the Earth as if it were immersed in honey. As the planet rotates, the honey around it would swirl, and it's the same with space and time
dark matter is smooth, distributed more evenly throughout space than we thought.
Where did you get that idea from? Dark matter by its very definition is not smoothly distributed. If it were then we wouldn't be able to detect it as causing the light curves in galaxy rotation.
Do you see now? Its speaking of dark matter as being very smoothly distributed, i.e. less clumpy, than we thought. It does not say that its perfectly smooth. Please keep in mind from now on the difference between "smooth" and "smoother."
You are simply not allowed to post your ideas in this forum since they are not currently accepted physics. In fact your idea makes absolutely no sense and is unrelated to reality, i.e. observations of nature. Physics does not consist of mere speculation like this. Its based solely on reality and what actually works consistently to describe nature. Your speculations here do none of that. Your claims where moved to the new theories forum for that reason. Reposting them again in this forum because they were removed from this thread is simply not acceptable behavior.
it could also be something in the nature of dark matter like the superfluid dark matter proposed by Justin Khoury
The mysterious dark matter that makes up most of the matter in the universe may behave more like wavy fluids
Totally incorrect and completely unjustified. Nowhere in any of the physics literature can anything be found to justify your that claim. What is it about justifying your claims that you're unable to understand?
Proof of your claim that dark matter the spacetime fabric itself has nothing to do with how its distributed. In fact is abundantly clear that you have no idea what spacetime is.
In fact why don't you tell everyone what the definition of spacetime is?
New analysis of a phenomenon known as cosmic shear suggests dark matter is less dense and more evenly -- or smoothly -- distributed throughout space....Cosmic shear is a type of gravitational lensing, the subtle warping of light waves emitted by distant galaxies as they travel past, around and through large clumps of cosmic matter, like galaxy clusters. ...The latest findings aren't necessarily superior to those of ESA's survey, but reveal the necessity for further exploration of cosmic shear and the distribution of matter. The findings will also force astronomers to rethink a variety of cosmic models.
The assumption of dark matter as a superfluid is not universally accepted at this point and as such cannot be taken as a fact.Regarding the (false) claim that dark matter is smoothly distributed made above see the following article http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Study_Dark_matter_may_be_more_smoothly_distributed_throughout_cosmos_999.htmlwhich statesQuoteNew analysis of a phenomenon known as cosmic shear suggests dark matter is less dense and more evenly -- or smoothly -- distributed throughout space....Cosmic shear is a type of gravitational lensing, the subtle warping of light waves emitted by distant galaxies as they travel past, around and through large clumps of cosmic matter, like galaxy clusters. ...The latest findings aren't necessarily superior to those of ESA's survey, but reveal the necessity for further exploration of cosmic shear and the distribution of matter.

Dark matter is postulated to exist because of galaxy rotation curves imply a 1/r^2 dependence in galaxies, i.e. locallyThe OP has made three serious mistakes (1) that the research is about the local scale and (2) that it refers to dark matter being smoothly distributed whereas it only speaks of it as being smoother that previously thought and (3) that it over rides the previous results, i.e. the ESA's survey.the box - You don't appear to know what spacetime is, i.e. how its defined. Please don't try to redefine physics terms. By definiton - Spacetime is the manifold consisting of all events where an event is a location in space at an instant in time. Thus dark matter is not spacetime. There can clearly be regions of space where no dark matter exists contrary to your claim. One example of what dark matter might consist of are black holes. Clearly there are places where there are no black holes and dark matter is not smooth locally.
I previously posted this in the Physics, Astronomy and Cosmology forum without realizing that it was more appropriate to submit to this forum. I apologize for that oversight.I have considered this myself for quite some time, but I also consider myself a simple man of simple mind and this solution that dark matter can be considered as a physical fabric or super-fluid, if one takes the time to afford it due consideration, is quite elegant in its simplicity.I would argue that if the fabric of space-time is a physical substance (which I believe it to be), then as a galaxy placed within that fabric rotates, the fabric would be drawn in upon itself similar to objects placed on/in any other spinning fabric. Spin a washcloth in a bath tub and watch what happens. It's pulled in on itself. The rotating fabric drawing those objects inward could then account for the perceived gravitational effects of "dark matter" while the curving of the fabric caused by the objects in the galaxies account for their local orbital behavior. Light would still follow the path of the curve in the fabric of space-time caused by the gravitational mass of the object in the field.This also makes sense if we choose to abandon the idea that "dark energy" exists to make up the other 70+% of the universe, accept a previously proposed "tired light" theory and reconsider the existence of the ether which was "proven wrong" by the Michelson-Morely experiment. The problem I have with this experiment is they were looking for differences in the speed at which light propagates through a vacuum due to the Earth's motion relative to the ether prior to the revolutionary discovery by Einstein that the speed of light measures the same value regardless of the motion of the source or observer. They were essentially looking for a result which Physics only later revealed could not have occurred. However, I have worked out a mathematical result that indicates a linear relationship between the amount of red shift which would occur for light with a wavelength of 400 nm to near infrared based on the distance of the light source which agrees with observed data and that amount of shift occurs at a distance of 13.7 BLY from the Earth. "Dark energy" is simply the loss of energy of a light source over astronomical distances because light must continue to travel the speed of light and now "dark matter" can make up 100% of the universe with a varied distribution not because it does exist some places but not others but rather because the amount of curvature space-time experiences varies with the presence of mass. You'll observe more dark matter near galaxies because the have greater mass.Obviously this goes against the currently most accepted paradigms of science. I deliberately say "most accepted" rather than "correct" because we have seen on many occasions where brilliant minds were often wrong. Unfortunately, I don't believe this model of the universe will ever be a provable theory because, as was stated in an earlier post, dark matter appears to be measurable where as the fabric of space-time cannot be. It would be like asking a fish to measure that it's wet and the only way to do so is take the fish out of the water. Because we cannot (presently) "get out of" the fabric of space time, we will never be able to take an external measurement of it. It is not some abstract mathematical construct which allows us to explain the behavior of the universe. It is a physical fabric which affects the observed behavior of physical objects.
our galaxy is swimming in a superfluid sea
dark matter is smooth, distributed more evenly throughout space than we thought
the empty vacuum of space … is filled with 'stuff'
According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there would be no propagation of light
dark matter might interact with itself via some yet unknown dark force … the particles could be something we call dark photons … the dark photon would have mass
The state of displacement of the sea of massive dark photons is the quantization of gravity.
