kenshin Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 Dark matter is basically added to the situation to explaine the gravitational pull in the absence of visible matter.We know that the gravitational force is space time geometry.So my suggestion is,what if our space-time is not so uniform afterall and containes wrinkles.Now these wrinkles will give rise to gravitational field,but no matter will be present,hence,producing an illusion of matter or dark matter.Also these wrinkles might not have gathered matter due to presense of deeper wrinkles in its vicinity.Under this alternative,we won't require any dark matter to explaine the situation at hand.
