That empty space is a medium which conducts matter/energy (?)
First I ask you to be mindful of the fact that I am not an astrophysicist nor am I an expert in this area of study. That being said, what is space? It is not nothing, nothing is just that, it is nothing. Space cannot be nothing because nothing does not exist. If space is composed of anti-matter or dark matter then that would confirm that space is not nothing, it is something. Exploring this concept logically, why does matter and energy travel or radiate so easily through space if it is something?
Before you say that concentrations of dark matter make it difficult for light to pass though consider this. Is it possible that the vast span of space is a conductor of energy and matter? We know that space is transparent considering we are looking for light, radiation, mass etc. But why? On your computer you are capable of seeing millions of gigabytes of information but have you ever seen the wire through your screen? Obviously you can see an Ethernet cord which is transmitting data by looking away from the screen, but you had to shift your gaze away from the screen. Looking at space for us is like looking at the internet from inside the screen.
So to all of you Mensa members and genius prodigies I ask you, is our concept of space biased? Can space be something that is entirely different than we imagined? Is space a solid which conducts matter and energy the way copper conducts electricity?
