Short answer: The ratios have changed over time... drastically. This is a consequence of the expansion of our universe. Initially (and by that I mean after the conjectured inflationary epoch, which I will not consider here), radiation dominated all other forms of energy by far. However, as the universe expands---as measured by the increase of the ''scale ...

John G. Cramer discussed G4V in a recent Analog Alternate View Column (Mar. 2016), and how Advanced LIGO data could possibly falsify G4V, General Relativity or even both of them (Their predicted gravity wave signatures signatures differ.) Cramer also stated that there would be no dark energy since G4v explains distant receding Type IIa supernova dimming as ...

Gravity and dark energy would have to be one & the same, due to the fact that gravity is spacetime and space time is basically the mother board or rather the rawness or better, the naked form of the universe. If einstein is correct about spacetime curvature than both are just different movements of the same entity, sort of like, how a river moves ...

I don't really have the background to understand such matters, but this presentation by Alan Guth gave me at least some idea of what it means to say the energy of a gravitational field is negative (which Guth calls a "miracle of physics"). Starting at 0:52:00 in that video clip, Guth presents this thought experiment... ...where it's taken as a given that ...
