Dark Matter -Boundary of the Cosmos

03/26/2010

Nasa’s Goddard Space centre released a report today confirming the finding it had done in 2008 about Dark Matter existing in the universe. Both articles can be read from the National Geographic Website.

“On the outskirts of creation, unknown, unseen “structures” are tugging on our universe like cosmic magnets, a controversial new study says.

Everything in the known universe is said to be racing toward the massive clumps of matter at more than 2 million miles (3.2 million kilometers) an hour—a movement the researchers have dubbed dark flow.

The presence of the extra-universal matter suggests that our universe is part of something bigger—a multiverse—and that whatever is out there is very different from the universe we know, according to study leader Alexander Kashlinsky, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.”

“The theory could rewrite the laws of physics. Current models say the known, or visible, universe—which extends as far as light could have traveled since the big bang—is essentially the same as the rest of space-time (the three dimensions of space plus time).”

I had posted the Nasadiya Sukta few posts ago which talked about creation when darkness existed originally.Also this latest discovery finally shuts the mouth of the traditional physicists who had denied the existence of Dark Matter.

1.In 2008 CERN Switzerland finally began the process to create Dark Matter particles in the Cern laboratory which led to a huge ruckus in the educated world for fear of creating an anti matter explosion which would engulf the whole world.

Official site of the European Organization of Nuclear research contains more details.

Coming back to pure Vedanta or Hindu Philosophy on matter. 🙂 Is not shiva worshipped as Ardha Nareeswara.Hinduism says everything occurs in dual pairs in the Universe. In the shadow of an lamp is present darkness .One does not exist without the other. The perfect yin to the yang.

If Dark matter present billions of light years at the periphery of the cosmos can make huge worlds move at the rate of 2 Million kilometres in a hour…what effect would it have on earth and the human beings living on it.

Is the perceived reality the truth 🙂 do your eyes tell you the total picture. Is not the vision you carry of the world just an stored image reconstructed by your brain from a memory of images.

What if the world you see with your eyes is not truly present 🙂 These are the questions the definition of Consciousness presents . In further posts I will start a new mini series on the view of Consciousness by Hindu philosophers. For now I leave you with this news.

Energy of the Universe is 73% Dark Matter and 23% Dark Energy

Formation of galaxies in the presence of Dark Matter

The word Aditi has many meanings just ponder over a  few of them….One without division…One who is primordial…One who is from the beginning . Aditi is the mother of the gods including Surya. She is the mother of light and encompasses the whole universe. Even Goddess Durga is praised as Adya or Aditi . The Cosmos is called the Brahma Anda….the ever expanding egg or sphere.

Praise be to that Adya who is omniscient ,omnipresent and omnipotent.
