A new particle won't solve dark matter, Dark matter may be information itself

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


One of the greatest curiosities of modern physics is the nature of the mysterious substance known as “dark matter”. It is widely accepted that the make up of the Universe is about 5% ordinary (baryonic) matter consists of baryons — an overarching name for subatomic particles such as protons, neutrons and electrons, 27% dark matter and, 68% of the universe is made of something even more puzzling called “dark energy”. Unlike normal matter, dark matter does not interact with the electromagnetic force. This means it does not absorb, reflect or emit light, making it extremely hard to spot.
Most physicists today are trying to identify the nature of dark matter by a variety of means, but the consensus is that dark matter is composed primarily of a not yet discovered subatomic particle. Unfortunately, all efforts to isolate or detect the dark matter have failed so far.
Could the explanation of “dark matter” mystery come from a totally new approach, based on Information Physics?
