Scientists have discovered that:
The universe is 99.99 percent space.
Matter itself is 99.99 percent space
Of all the matter 90 percent is "dark matter" that we can't see.
Of all the "dark matter" only half of it is the kind of matter we know and the other half is of an unknown type.
Wouldn't it be cool if scientists dicovered that what we call matter is simply a misunderstanding and the universe is one hundred percent pure space.
I understand that one of the solutions to Einstein's relativity equations is a universe that is pure energy containing no matter( one of De Sitter's Universes)
It seems metaphoric that we struggle so hard to understand matter and so little to understand consciousness.
