Mass from redshifted radiation

  1. Sep 13, 2003 #1
    This posting relates to my earlier posting and might explain the nature of one or more forms of nonbaryonic matter. It proposes that the mass of such matter represents the energy lost from redshifted radiation. For example, the energy that has been lost from cosmic microwave background radiation now exists as cold dark matter.

    This means that the overall mass of the universe increases if the amount of mass originating from redshifted radiation is greater than the loss of mass from processes such as fusion and accretion.

    My earlier posting proposed that G not only functions as the gravitational constant, but paradoxically it also relates to the expansion of the universe by providing the universe with 6.67E-11 m^3 of volume per s^2 for each kg of mass in the universe. Discrepancies arising between the formulas of that premise and observations might now be explained in view of the above infromation about changes of mass in the universe. For example, as with all other matter, new nonbaryonic matter originating from redshifted radiation contributes to the expansion of the universe rather than its collapse do to additional gravity sources.

    Who said that the CMBR loses energy ?
