Dark source flux cosmology
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Recent WMAC and Planck data confirm that the observable universe is spatially flat also in a General Relativity (λCDM) framework. For this reason, a simple flat-metric theory – the dark source flux (DSF) model – for the metric expansion of the universe was developed in a previous article. This theory readily explains the observed expansion features of the universe, both qualitatively and quantitatively. The basic hypothesis is that the universe is inflated by a uniformly distributed source flux of dark energy – a dark source flux – generating the observed volume expansion. The theory predicts Big Bang and the existence of a ground level density of dark energy, permeating all space and being a physical manifestation of the invariant ground state space. This DSF theory is summarized in the present article.
The DSF theory is free-standing from General Relativity and eliminates several problems arising in the expansion theory of standard cosmology, for instance the flatness, horizon, and coincidence problems. The present article also analyzes several other problems in some detail, particularly issues related to the cosmological constant Λ, as well as the perfect fluid constraint and the local energy conservation criterion. It is concluded that the standard λCDM theory from a fundamental viewpoint is not really well suited for modelling the flat-metric expansion of the universe, but the related WMAC and Planck results still are surprisingly close to the DSF results. The DSF theory is, in the author’s opinion, superior to the expansion model of standard cosmology in several ways accounted for in the article.
A creation narrative based on the DSF model is presented, in which the dark energy density is identified as the overall kinetic energy density of the expansion of the universe. Several other interesting implications of the theory are discussed in the article and in a number of attached pdf files, for instance a strong correlation between the dark energy and the matter contents of the universe; the causal connection issue; a DSF-based derivation of Hubble’s law; and the mathematical Big Bang singularity as a metric artefact.
