I never thought too deep into Einsteins theory. I have wondered about ufo's though. :o Here is a related thought though on time travel. There is a short commercial before the short (15 or 20 second) video. After you watch the video you can wait and it will auto-play some more without the commercial.

I looked in to that. It's from a partnership in geriatric medicine, called "Grandfather Pair-o-Docs."

That's a good one.
I have more questions than answers

Noddy, I agree there are some great minds here.

I disagree on the academic community being challenged.
If you work with or know scientists, you'll find that most are thirsty for new theories.
They rightly tear new theories to shreds since that is the basis of the scientific method.

If it survives, it warrants further investigation. Weak ones die early.

The only ones that stick around without merit are the ones which are not scientific theories, but ideas that non-scientists really want to be true. Wanting something to be true doesn't make it so and science says it ain't so lest it is testable and follows from a narrative which is testable/provable all the way back to fundamentals.

Quite true, John,

But, as it stands, my theory is no more or less provable than dark matter or dark energy, as science can only imply them, not observe them at this point. I would love to be proven wrong, or proven right. Either is acceptable, so long as we have quantifiable data from direct observation.

Steve, but your theory has the narrative I mentioned.
It isn't coming out of vacuum because you want it to be true, even if you do.
Your footings are based in a heritage of scientific background going back quite far.
That heritage welcomes challenge, in opposition to the comment made by noddybrian.
Put another way, there are no scientific conspiracies.
Scientists are the last people who would reject something to preserve status quo.
That's my only point.

Sadly, science (as a community) has a long history of resisting new ideas even in the face of evidence. Acceptance of significant change comes slowly, when it flies in the face of what you've studied and believed to be true. Granted, the change does come, but rarely is it instant. This, too, I suppose is the scientific method, opposing a new idea until sufficiently convinced by the evidence.

Interject all the recent info on studies done that involve use of mice that gave incomplete data. Even though there are better ways ( still sometimes animal based studies I'm not anti animal study ) but the structure to maintain and rely on use of the same processes due to already invested $ trumps scientific theory.
I have more questions than answers

Steve, you may be right on the whole, taking into account the entire population and all endeavors.
I tend to think scientists fall on the 'ready to believe, with evidence' side of that curve.
