Three ideas with disruptive potential remain undiscussed and are public since 2002/3. All Darkness can be enlightened now. They do not colide with SR/GR nor QM and do not need any speculative entity. The authors provide physical models, and math, that fits the observed data.
1 - Is it spacetime or, is it space + time? How sure we are?
2 - Is it space expansion or a matter shrinking scenario, or a combination of both? How sure we are?
3 - a particle model by Douglas Pinnow 'The Resonant Universe'
Questioning our rooted beliefs (or myths?):
1 - We used to assume that the atom sizes are absolute and we have no physical basis to assert that. This presumption is an obfuscation to the understanding of the properties of the universe and time. This paper analyses the effects that arise from the perspective of an 'instant observer', leading to the natural split of spacetime into space + time. A scale-invariant, and self-similar, model of the Universe is presented there. All we know is that the ratio 'space/matter' is getting greater. Because we use 'atomic properties' to take measures we can explore 'more space', 'less matter' or both, as time goes by.
An independent derivation of the Einstein Special Relativity is also presented.
2 - This paper extends the above one and is easier to follow. The author presents a model of our Universe that is scale-invariant (self-similar) where Dark Energy is not invited and has only one parameter, the Hubble constant. He explores the consequences of it in the past history, and future, of the Solar System and the Earth and the primordial ambient of Life's Origin. The comparison is made with the values of SM.
3 - Pinnow presents a monograph with a new model of particles, based only on EM (Electromagnetism), and with only one parameter - the electron mass. He derives the main particles properties to within 1% of their values, and the barionic masses well bellow 1%, that does not suffer the barionic 'spin crisis'. His predictions are different from the SM expectations, no Higgs particle ;) and can be tested with the data obtained at LHC. He follows the steps of Goedecke, Haus and others, on the non-radiating condition of the EM field.
With 1) and 2) - a ONE parameter model - there is no space expansion, no BB, no Inflation era, no DE, no DM, no cosmological constant, and make me understand better some issues like the GRBs properties, the 'isotope stability valley' and understand the why of the measured variability of the fine structure constant (by Webb et al), and the Pioneer 10 and 11 anomaly, and supermassive BH, etc,etc ...
With 3) - a ONE parameter model - All particle mass, the rest mass, can be converted to energy avoiding the formation of BH. Thanks, because I feel unconfortable with Black Holes, and this is not possible under SM.
I'm a follower, not the author. As the mammals were born in the time of the dinosaurs also revolutionary ideas are born on the fringes of mainstream thinking.
