At a point in deep space there is usually no convenient unit point charge anyway, so there
is no divergence of any energy flow present and no selection of a tiny Poynting component.
Hence none of the EM energy flow is diverged in massless space, and the EM field or potential in
space are topological entities, arising as forms of EM energy-induced curvatures of spacetime
itself.
The magnitude of the "dark-energy-induced" curvatures of spacetime surrounding every
EM interaction with charged mass are much greater than what we normally calculate, since we do
not calculate the
actual
EM energy involved, but only a "reaction cross section" of the EM energy
involved with a unit point static charge, multiplied by the magnitude of the interacting charge.
Demonstration and Proof of the Presence of the Dark Energy
Bohren's experiment {Error: Reference source not found}, which is readily replicated {
18
},
collects 18 times more energy from the usually nondiverged Heaviside component, just by
resonating the charge and thereby sweeping out a greater geometrical reaction cross section
than the static charge that is used to calculate the Poynting flow component.
It follows that "the"
field and "the" potential input to the intercepting charge have far more energy "in the vicinity of"
an interacting point static charge and of a unit dipole than what is accounted for in the
conventional EM model where the magnitudes of the fields and potentials are erroneously taken
as being the magnitudes of the energy
diverted from
them by a unit point
static
charge.
This
enormous extra energy, however, does not participate in the interaction and is the "dark energy"
component recognized by Heaviside and then erroneously discarded by Lorentz.
As an example, in a very simple battery-powered resistor circuit the arbitrarily
unaccounted
Heaviside
dark energy flow component surrounding the circuit and missing it
entirely may be 10
13
times as large in magnitude as is the accounted
Poynting
flow component
that enters the circuit {
19
}.
This is the problem that so vexed Lorentz, and that has only recently
been explained by the present author {Error: Reference source not found}.
Dark Energy Is a Candidate Source for the Missing Gravity
In space occupied by mass with intense ongoing electromagnetic interaction activity,
there is far more EM energy present at the interactions and in their vicinity than physics and
electrodynamics accounts for, because of the arbitrary and erroneous discard by Lorentz and his
modern followers of the vast Heaviside "dark energy" component of every EM interaction.
This of
course has immediate gravity implications.
It follows that the energy calculated by the astrophysicists as being available in the
interactions of light and mass in distant astronomical entities is grossly understated due to
Lorentz's arbitrary omission of most of the actual EM energy flow present. The total spacetime
curvature induced by the dark energy in the presence of those interactions is much greater than
the astrophysicists calculate and account.
In turn, it follows that the gravity calculated by the
astrophysicists for those energetic distant astronomical entities is significantly understated.
