Could portals link the visible world with a dark sector?
I fully realize that this subject matter is outside my general understanding. Maybe yours too? However, because it fascinates me, please follow along as I make four simple observations about the concept stated in the headline. And check the links if this is your comfort zone.
Observation one – scientists are still hard at work trying to find a model for the universe that works. That is, one that can account for all the phenomena that they are aware of.
Observation two – the “Standard Model” is a good model because it accounts for 16 fundamental particles that form everything in the known universe. But it is incomplete because there is a large sector which is invisible or dark. As much as 70% is thought to be dark!
Observation three – accounting for the visible universe is not enough to explain why the universe behaves as it does. Science would like to also explain the invisible universe – dark matter and dark energy – but cannot “because we simply do not know how to study them.”
Observation four – science has generally kept to the observable as their domain. Now however, to understand what they cannot explain, they hope to move through portals. A new South Korean study suggests they have found “the way to bridge the gap between the visible world and the dark sector of physics” through portals.
Conclusion? Technology – whether computers or WiFi or Internet or Cloud or Smartphones or AI or IoE or self-driving cars – technology has evidently not even scratched the surface of what is available in the universe. Complex beyond imagination!
