This reminds me of the theories requiring phlogiston and ether.

Being neither an astrophycist nor a cosmologist, I am hardly qualified to argue the merits of the theory, but it seems to me that the application of Occam's Razor to this fuzzy thinking might make a cleaner theory.

One of my NASA friends says, as you say, that "dark matter" may just be our "ether", the mythical stuff the ancients postulated. We may be as far away from understanding what is really going on as they were, another explanation is that there are other forces at work in the universe that distort gravity that we just don't understand yet. Hawkins postulates that "intelligence" may actually be some type of universal force, for instance.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

It's the sounds of trees falling in the woods.

And the intentions contained in works of art.

Anybody buying that?

Yes, but a lack of intelligence seems to be the more potent force on this forum.

They'd be well-advised to check themselves.
