Dark Source Flux Cosmology - An Occam’s Razor Universe

Abstract [en]

This publication deals with the fascinating phenomenon of the metric expansion of the universe. Most cosmologists believe that this issue is satisfactorily explained by the expansion model ΛCDM, which is one part of the Standard Model of Cosmology, which in turn is based on the curved-metric, covariant tensor formalism of General Relativity. However, in that theory the issue is approached at the highest and most complex theoretical level (Einstein’s field equation). Far-reaching, simplifying constraints then are introduced until a workable level is reached. This is a top-down procedure, which works well in some cases but leads astray in others.

In this publication, the opposite way of approach is taken: start from basics with experimental facts and build a problem-oriented model upwards. In this down-up approach more advanced elements are added if and when they become necessary, but not otherwise. This is the Occam’s razor philosophy, implemented in this publication. It is thereby shown that the standard model can be replaced by a considerably simpler model without loss of generality; in fact, in important parts the new model is more developed than the standard model.

A detailed analysis leads to the conclusion that the principle of energy conservation simply does not hold in a universe undergoing flat-metric, accelerating expansion. Consequently, the theory presented here states that the non-inertial accelerating expansion of the flat physical universe is driven by a non-conservative influx of new energy, in natural agreement with commonly accepted physics. Our theory is much more general than the standard theory: No energy conservation, no reversible expansion process, no quasi-equilibrium state, no perfect fluids, no inconsistent equations of state, and no strange pressure concepts are assumed.

This theory predicts a Big Bang beginning and readily explains the observed expansion features of the universe, qualitatively as well as quantitatively. The ‘exotic’ dark energy is identified as the overall kinetic expansion energy of the universe. A strong relationship between dark energy and other cosmic media is revealed. The theory yields singular as well as non-singular Big Bang solutions; in the latter case it is found that the Planck unit system is closely linked to the primordial state of the universe. Several other Big Bang-related issues are discussed: metric inversion; cyclic expansion/contraction; pocket universes and multiverses; a cosmological arrow of time; the ‘worst theoretical prediction in the history of science’ (the 10120 error); and several other issues.
