One of the most important unsolved problems of current physics, astronomy, and
cosmology is the nature of dark matter and dark energy. These two invisible
components of the universe seem to control the behavior of galaxies, clusters of
galaxies, and the accelerating expansion of the universe, but we do not know
what they are. Dark Matters offers a unified explanation for dark
matter and dark energy, and, in doing so, formulates a new theory of ordinary
Central to this new theory is the concept of electric lines of force, encased in
something called insulating space, which means we are generally not aware of
them, just as we are not aware of the currents passing through insulated cables.
The essential feature of Dark Matters that sets it apart from
similar titles is that it sees the whole universe as a tapestry. The background
"material" of this tapestry is the space-time framework of Einstein's theories
of relativity. The threads of the tapestry are magnetic and electric lines of
force. The magnetic lines of force originate from planets and stars; many exist
as independent threads that weave their way in the vast spaces that separate the
stars of galaxies.
Sure to be discussed and debated in international scientific professional
societies, Dark Matters is a fascinating, essential, and
accessible book for anyone interested in exploring the frontiers of physics and
