Dark Matter Detection?!

http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/090401-dark-matter-annihilation.html

Many of you have probably come to think of me as an Anti-Dark Matterist. Okay, so I made that term up, but it fits. :)

So, here's the shocker......I like this story. At least this time it's not a computer model, or a simulation of experimental math, but hard data and findings. I also love this statement in the article itself,

"We hope to have detected dark matter, but now we need other verification coming from other experiments," Picozza said.

Now THAT'S the proper process! The words "hope" and "need other verification" are key and paramount to the true scientific process.

Now, this doesn't mean I'm a convert by any means. I still have severe reservations about the entire Dark Matter Theory, but at least in this article they are not claiming pseudo-facts and making definitive statements, which is what so many other Dark Matter articles seem to do. That has been my gripe all along.

Dark Matter may or may not exist. The math may or may not be broken. Electricity may be the answer. There are a lot of maybe's and possibilities, but at least this article follows proper protocol in my book.

Ok, Its time.

When elements decay they produce residue which has its self properties that lend to other reactions and reactionary states. The universe itself is a reactionary clock mechanism which is capable of learning and being 'manipulated'.

For instance, core molten magma has options and it can be decided if it will go through the 'solidifying' process or if it will go straight to the 'gasifying' process, it is at this junction that the 'anti' and 'or' the pro dimension positive is decided, this example being 'dark matter' produced from the elevating process of dark energy.

Hence, Picozza himself says...


["We hope to have detected dark matter, but now we need other verification coming from other experiments," Picozza said.]


Picozza may consider the process involved for pressure conversion controlling molten core magma and magnetic properties involved with the control of directing releasing energy that has been accumilating among particular regions.

Thus, I believe you will be further educated with the research and study of earthquakes.
