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.
