4Year-Old Postmodern Cosmology Challenges 20-Year Mainstream Cosmology

LOS ALTOS HILLS, Calif. – Postmodern cosmology is celebrating its fourth anniversary with the publishing of its Big Bang cosmology theory in a book entitled “How Dark Matter Created Dark Energy and the Sun”. The original form of the cosmology theory is described in Part X under the title, “Cosmic-Ray Cosmology: Drexler’s Unified Theory of Dark Matter, Accelerating Expansion, and Star Formation.”

The postmodern Big Bang cosmology theory is based upon utilizing the tangible Relativistic-Proton dark matter, which is related to cosmic-ray protons. Postmodern cosmology is able to use many observations that are more astronomical and relies on considerably fewer hypotheses than does today’s mainstream Big Bang cosmology, which is based upon intangible Cold Dark Matter.

The problem with the 20-year-old Cold Dark Matter hypotheses is that if we attempt to add another astronomical observation to improve the net significance of the Big Bang cosmology results, we most probably would have to add another hypothesis to the list of Cold Dark Matter hypotheses for the group of them to be compatible with the new astronomical observation. Thus, there would be no improvement in net significance.

That is, the problem with current Big Bang cosmology is not a shortage of available relevant astronomical observations, but that the Cold Dark Matter hypotheses cannot generally show compatibility with an added independent astronomical observation without adding another new hypothesis. On the other hand, increasing the number of astronomical observations will increase the net significance for the postmodern Big Bang cosmology, which utilizes Relativistic-Proton dark matter.

This problem with Cold Dark Matter comes about because it is described only in terms of its gravitational effects. There is no other proven physical description to utilize. Until Cold Dark Matter exhibits additional relevant physical characteristics and parameters, its proof of existence will remain inadequate for its use in today’s Big Bang cosmology.

When it was discovered that the postmodern Big Bang cosmology was able to solve more than 15 unsolved cosmic mysteries during the years 2004-2005, a book sequel was authored by Jerome Drexler entitled, “Comprehending and Decoding the Cosmos.” The book, published May 22, 2006, further developed the theory, described, and explained solutions to the more than 15 enigmas.

Drexler also posted scientific papers on the physics archive arXiv in 2005 and 2007 that augmented the books and further developed the “Postmodern Big Bang Cosmology,” which is based upon Relativistic-Proton dark matter. The Feb. 15, 2007 scientific paper, e-Print No. physics/0702132, describes the strong linkage between the Big Bang theory and the Relativistic-Proton dark matter theory via the Second Law of Thermodynamics and the entropy level required by the Big Bang at the beginning of time.

The 2006 sequel discloses the roles and functions of Relativistic-Proton dark matter in creating spiral galaxies, stars, starburst galaxies and ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. The subtitle for the book is “Discovering Solutions to Over a Dozen Cosmic Mysteries by Utilizing Dark Matter Relationism, Cosmology, and Astrophysics.”

This book is now cataloged and available in over 40 astronomy or physics libraries around the world including libraries at Harvard, Stanford, Yale, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, Cornell, Harvard-Smithsonian, Vassar, and the universities of Hawaii, Toronto, Illinois, Edinburgh, Hamburg, Goettingen, Groningen, Copenhagen, Chile, Bologna, Helsinki, Lisbon, Guadalajara, and Kyoto, and the Max-Planck-Institut for Astrophysik.

Jerome Drexler, the author of the book, entered the race to identify dark matter in 2002, by utilizing Albert Einstein’s 1905 Special Theory of Relativity, Claude Shannon’s information theory, Johannes Kepler’s 400-year-old idea of re-analyzing the astronomical data of others, Occam’s (Ockham’s) razor logic of the 14th century and Drexler’s own 50-year career in applied physics research, invention and innovation that began with seven years at Bell Laboratories.

Jerome Drexler is a former NJIT Research Professor in physics at New Jersey Institute of Technology, founder and former Chairman and chief scientist of LaserCard Corp. (Nasdaq: LCRD) and former Member of the Technical Staff of Bell Laboratories. He has been awarded 76 U.S. patents, honorary Doctor of Science degrees from NJIT and Upsala College, a degree of Honorary Fellow of the Technion, an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship at Stanford University, a three-year Bell Labs graduate study fellowship, the 1990 “Inventor of the Year Award” for Silicon Valley and recognition as the inventor of the familiar “Laser Optical Storage System.” He is a member of the NJIT Board of Overseers and an Honorary Life Member of the Technion Board of Governors.

Jerome Drexler, inventor of the LaserCard optical memory card, worked at Bell Labs, was a research professor in physics at NJIT, and chief scientist of LaserCard Corp. Drexler is the author of four books on his discovery of the nature of dark matter, dark energy and “dark matter cosmology” of the universe.
