Re. Dark matter. Concept of nothing

  1. Apr 24, 2015 #1
    "Why do so many physicists believe there has to be a structure to the vast voids in space" ?

    Surely, Their thinking defies the basic principles of physics, i.e. in order to have something
    there has to be nothing ! to have a positive there also has to be a negative, so as for the positive to function !

    “Can someone explain why not” ?

    The structures are not theoretical entities, they exist and are measurable.

    Hi Philip Carvey,

    This forum is dedicated to helping people learn and understand mainstream physics as practiced today by professional physicists. It is not for debunking alternative theories. We can discuss "Explain why theory X says Y" but "Explain why not" is out of scope.
