Dark matter.....Waste? This may sound crazy (and probably is)......but. From my understanding "dark matter" is an unknown substance (?) that comprises most of the space(?) between planets, stars and galaxies, in our known universe. From what I have read the universe does not have near enough atomic matter to explain such vast distances between galaxies. It seems also that "dark energy" is supposed to be an unknown force that is pushing the galaxies away from each other and expanding the universe. My question(s) is thus. Is our universe overtaking this "nothingness" and thus it preceded the Big Bang, and the momentum of our universe is overtaking more of this "nothingness"? Or.....Can dark matter be a form of waste, say from super giant black holes that have stripped all known physical properties from atomic matter, and light and is thus regurgitating or excreting this "stuff" back into the universe as an unidentifiable form of waste. Could dark matter be a form of "waste" from another universe that is being "dumped' into our universe thus "blowing up the balloon" (expanding our universe). If it has no atomic properties then where does it come from? Did it precede the Big Bang as the "void" of nothingness? Is our universe "eating itself" Is something outside "eating our universe" and returning the remains in this form? Is something outside eating something from outside and "dumping" it in our universe? Is very perplexing. Any ideas? I apologize for any lack of clarity in the above questions.
