Dark Matter (or Gravity) and Airships
Gravity - a hypothesis
It is suggested that it may be impossible to observe more than a tiny fraction of all the matter in the universe. By some calculations over 90 per cent of matter in the universe is not radiating at any wavelength in the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Though there are many candidates for 'dark matter' it would appear to be a distinct possibility that 'dark matter' may in fact be 'graviton' or particles of gravity providing a 'fluid' in a universal fluid system. In my view, the universe is mostly composed of solid gravitons and we, and the rest of the everyday world are the exception. The first point to understand is that such hypothetical particles are extremely small. I understand from mathematicians at the University of Hull that the size of a 'graviton' would be equivalent to a 50mm diameter sphere divided in half 111 times. It is further suggested that the gravitons are so small that they might flow through the atoms of all objects like a fluid flowing through a net to the centre of the earth. The nucleus of an atom has been likened, comparatively, in terms of size to a 'fly in a cathedral'. This would leave, theoretically at least, a considerable amount of vacant space in an atom. It would not be unreasonable, as a fluid system design model, for the flow of gravitons through the atoms, it is suggested, provides the well-known effect of gravity pinning us all to the earth. Everyone is standing in a river flow of gravitons. This is why we have no sensation of speed as we hurtle around the universe on our planet.
The next part of the hypothesis is the notion that gravitons are attracted to protons. My guess is that this is connected with space pressure which results from the dark matter and would seem to be a constant given that the speed of light is also a constant. Perhaps the process can be compared to the Coanda Effect. Space pressure cannot be present at the surface of the proton. For a moment the graviton is enticed into orbital mode about the proton by the applied force of space pressure. This removes a graviton from the space pressure system, and starts off a chain of events that we call "the effects of gravity" with differential pressure around the proton accounting for the attraction of gravitons to protons. The gravitons may be arranged in a disc around planets comparable to the ring around Saturn but much thinner (perhaps only a few centimetres) to provide a constant flow of gravitons - this 'disc' would explain why water rotates opposite directions, when going down a plug-hole, on either side of the equator.
