Dark energy is generally regarded as a hypothetical form of energy that permeates all of space and tends to increase the rate of expansion of the universe. Currently, this is the most accepted theory to explain recent observation that the universe appears to be expanding at an accelerating rate. I have a new theory that may completely explain the origins and results of: The Big Bang, The Big Rip, Quintessence, Dark Energy, Bubble Nucleation and the formation of all reality.
In the standard model of cosmology, dark energy represents 73% of the total mass-energy of the universe. There are two proposed forms of dark energy: The cosmological constant which is thought to be filling space homogeneously, which is incorrect and scalar fields such as quintessence or moduli which are dynamic quantities whose energy density can vary in space and time.
It is reasonably clear that the primary difficulties in measuring dark energy is that it is both undetectable directly (we can see its result, but no proof of its existence, and that we can likely only see a very small portion of the universe, or that the universe is infinite and therefore we will never be able to directly measure the rate of expansion everywhere.
Dark Energy is actually the physical result of time. If we liken time to that of an “intelligent virus” or perhaps a virus bound by rules and logic it is reasonable to assume that it would proliferate the universe at different rates as a result of relativity. It is reasonable to assume this since the observer experiences time differently in the presence of varying quantities of actual mass.
This could also play a role in the explanation of the big bang and some of the developed theories as a result IE the Big Rip. Assigning a physical presence to time fits wether or not we assume time and the universe or multiverse has or had a beginning.
If we believe that time’s physical essence is in fact the quintessence that we are looking to solve for and as such that this fits with the dynamic nature of the behavior of time in the presence of physical reality in the form of mass and “standard energy” then we can think of time as the unstoppable force and the ultimate creator of the universe.
If time “moves faster” in the absence of mass then as the universe expands as a result of time it will continue to expand faster as the mass/volume ratio of the universe results in an ever increasing rate of acceleration or replication of the “time quintessence”. This will continue until a certain time in the future when the resulting rate of expansion would be equal to an infinite scale factor of the universe and the theoretical state of phantom energy in which all distances diverge to infinite values.
When this occurs, a “rip” in the bounds of the universe will result in the leakage of time and “some matter” into the bulk. The nearly or perhaps infinite force causing the tear and leak into the bulk results in the next big bang and formation of another universe.
This perhaps, elegantly explains, the big bang, the big rip, dark energy/matter and bubble nucleation.
