1. ## Galactic Rotation, General Rule

Well, I've been away from the site for a while now and things have certainly moved on haven't they. The issues discussed since my last visit have to do with masses, forces, speeds and geometry. No one has picked up on my original proposal which involves temporal effects;- - Time is dilated significantly toward the galactic centre and this will distort observed speeds making them seem slower than they actually are within their frame' (Redshift) - There is only one point at which time runs the same as here in the solar system and that is at a similar galactic radius to ours in a galaxy of
2. ## Galactic Rotation, General Rule

Athinker, I get what you're saying and maybe you're right, only I understand that Newton's Law is always an inverse square relationship with all the mass INBOARD of the rotation radius. Any distribution of matter inboard can be resolved as equivalent balls of mass, so I can't quite grasp how you get anything but a falling curve (inverse squares) from the centre outwards, whatever the mass distribution? Don't get me wrong, I am not simply defending my own ideas against counter ones. I have an open mind and would be just as satisfied with a different explanation being proved right. Can you h
3. ## Time as a First and Fundamental Dimension...

..............for convenience sake, we refer to the "four dimensions of space-time", or if we want to specify, we could say 3+1 (spatial, plus time) to distinguish between observed space-time and concepts involving more than 3 spatial dimensions. I could also say I exist in seven dimensions - (x,y,z,pitch,roll,yaw,and time) If my skin could change color, then I could add in another three dimensions for red,green, and blue, giving me ten dimensions. I could choose to label the colors as 1st, 2nd, or 3rd dimensions, or I could choose x,y,z. It doesn't matter. It helps that everyone use the
4. ## Time as a First and Fundamental Dimension...

If I may add my three pennyworth? If we think about space first, and only space, then we always think of the three dimensions of space. This is not a fundamental thought process. Sure, space is three dimensional because we choose to break it down that way for our own convenience, but what we have in reality is just "VOID". The very notion of void, involves directionality or dimensions and we do not have to envision three dimensions to define the void until we have to define events within it. Clearly, the void cannot "exist" without the passage of time and space has no meaning without time.
5. ## Galactic Rotation, General Rule

TRANSFERED FROM "DARK MATTER". I am sceptical about the existence of CDM. As you correctly point out, it cannot be justified by the analogy of Neptune, since with Neptune, we simply "created" another planet, an additional known entity, whereas with CDM, we are "creating" an entirely new entity altogether with some very specific and demanding properties. This is a bit like the Aether before Relativity came along and we know what happened to the Aether. Also, this "creation" goes against the guidance of Occam's razor and we have seemingly failed to pursue other explanations which do not deman
