    Default Dark energy

    Three possibilities for the nature of dark energy

    1) it is an inherent property of empty space, a uniform distribution of energy associated with space itself, called vacuum energy.

    2) a slightly different kind of vacuum energy which varies across time and space, called quintessence.

    3) it is a modification of the laws of gravity and general relativity we do not yet understand; something beyond Einstein's theory.

    The leading hypothesis among cosmologists is vaccum energy, although there is a significant contingent who believe dark energy just implies that there is something more, a modification, to Einstein's general relativity we do not understand yet.

    Default Our universe may have a twin that runs backward in time

    An anti-universe running backwards in time could explain dark matter and cosmic inflation.

    To preserve the charge-parity-time (CPT) symmetry throughout the cosmos, there must be a mirror-image cosmos that balances out our own. This cosmos would have all opposite charges than we have, be flipped in the mirror, and run backward in time. Our universe is just one of a twin. Taken together, the two universes obey CPT symmetry.
