Scientists claim dark matter that makes up most of universe 'may not exist'

In an article by a Daily Mail reporter, the paper claims:-

Bang goes the theory: Scientists claim dark matter that makes up most of universe 'may not exist'

Scientists have claimed dark matter and energy – the mysterious substances thought to make up 96 per cent of the universe – may not exist, a report yesterday claimed.

The two mysterious materials are believed to power the expansion of the cosmos.

However, if the evidence proves correct, it means the theory used to calculate the structure of the universe may be wrong.

Planets, stars, asteroids and gas account for just four per cent of the cosmos, according to the Standard Model of Cosmology, which analyses the big bang theory.

However, the study carried out by Durham University physicists raises the possibility that this is flawed, and there may be no ‘dark side’ of the universe, which could mean the cosmos is not expanding as rapidly as believed.

Dr Robert Massey, of the Royal Astronomical Society, which published the findings, said: ‘This would challenge greatly our assumptions about the long-term future of the universe, because the assumption at the moment is that the universe is expanding and if it isn’t that would be a huge shock.’

Readers of my blogs will know that I have postulated that dark energy and matter can never be 'seen', because mankind cannot sense that part of the universe described by negative dimensions that are measured in terms of the square root of minus one.
Dark matter and energy are being created alongside the universe we know in an energy balanced reaction at the leading edge of that universe. What we call cosmic background radiation is not evidence of the 'Big Bang' but the energy emitted when empty space is transformed into the two constituent parts of our universe.
Another thing. I believe that surplus energy in the observable universe passes to the 'negative' universe via so called black holes
