Based on what?

And I'm still waiting on your answer to my request. May I expect it never?

The CMB is an image of the cosmic web taken at the farthest possible position. Of course it's blurry plasma. Plasma in the spacetime filaments.

The cosmic web didn't exist at the time of the CMB, the universe was very smooth still at that time. When you look at an image of the CMB the (false) colors represent a difference of less than 0.001 kelvin between the hottest and coldest parts of the CMB. There are no filaments in the CMB.

Could I have some dressing with that word salad?

I have to give you props for effort. You are quite apt at stringing nonsense together in a way that seems like you're trying to tell us something.

Yet another good example ... whatever pittsburghjoe-physics/astronomy/cosmology is, it sure ain't science!

The internal contradictions alone, in pittsburghjoe-physics, are truly breath-taking to behold.

But hey, as one of the Queens said (I'm paraphrasing) anyone can think of six impossible things before breakfast.

A theory that make the Electric Universe seems well worked out and coherent, but here it is.

I wonder why people who are unable to do maths always seem to think you can do science without it.

Astonishing as it may seem, pittsburghjoe is sorta correct (but only if GR rules, not pittsburghjoe-physics).

I have read a paper where just this is proposed (well, not just); I'll see if I can dig it up if anyone is interested. From memory: more like 10 or 20 years; ferociously difficult technically; but may be possible with hoped-for-new-equipment on the proposed OWL (or perhaps EELT), which is a good decade or two away ...

As promised, I started a new thread on this (and the cosmic web/filaments), Some very cool stuff from astronomers etc

The impressive accuracy is on the redshift, achieved via impressive technology (laser frequency combs) and brute force (a 42 m optical telescope! ). By a curious cosmic coincidence, the technology requires time resolution which, per a post or twenty by pittsburghjoe early in this thread, is utterly impossible (i.e. below 1 femtosecond).

No, Pure energy and magnetism was blasting through the quantum realm at the big bang. Plasma filaments of the cosmic web. There was bound to be some type of side effect.

Maybe the cosmic filaments were tunnels filled with dark matter before big bang.

Maybe Pure energy and Magnetism create Dark Matter tunnels/filaments, then observation has to travel through all the tunnels but doesn't observe all the Dark Matter as it passes through.

Wait, what?!?

Dark Energy was once alive? When was it born? Who are its mother and father? Does it have any siblings?

Almost.

Maybe Pure Unicorns and Dragons create Dark Matter runnels/firmaments, then observation has ravel threw all the runnels but doesn’t conserve all the Dark Matter as it plusses, though.

It's funny that you think you've proven something to everyone based solely upon a bunch of "I think...", "Maybe...", "Not sure", and "I suspect..." musings which contain no proof whatsoever. And these are just from the past 15 or so pages.

Thumbs down Overnight items of ignorance, fantasy and delusion by pittsburghjoe

  1. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Insanity about cosmology where textbook physics turned plasma into structure.
  2. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: An insane "center to the cosmic web" delusion outside of the observable universe.
    Insane because textbook physics says there is no center and we will never see his delusion of a center.
  3. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: "first particles formed in the filaments of the cosmic web" insanity when the universe started hundreds of millions of years before the cosmic web as a quark-gluon plasma.
  4. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: "You and Reality Check believe this ridiculous notion that nothingness would expand your head if gravity wasn't here" insanity.
    It is well known, textbook cosmology that the strong, weak and electromagnetic forces keep atoms, heads, planets and stars together against the expansion of the universe. Gravity keeps gravitationally bound objects together against the expansion of the universe, e.g. the Solar System and galaxies.
  5. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Usual "dark energy isn't real" lies and delusions.
  6. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Usual "the quantum field without spacetime" insanity (a field in physics is spacetime + quantities).
  7. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Ignorant gibberish about QFT.
  8. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Usual ignorant quantum field, matter field, etc. gibberish.
  9. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: The "Unobservable fields" delusions.
  10. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: The "big bang being energy and magnetism" insanity addressed before.
    The insanity is images of magnetic fields that are irrelevant to and look nothing like the cosmic web.
  11. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: "CMB is an image of the cosmic web" insanity when the cosmic web formed after the CMB.
    The CMB is an image of the fluctuations of the plasma that filled the universe hundreds of millions of years before the universe had large scale structures.
  12. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: "microwaves that must be at maximum fuzziness" gibberish.
  13. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: A stupid "Scientists are just claiming CMB to fit their narrative" insult
    Scientists use textbook physics to analyze the CMB. It is the measured properties of the CMB that show that the universe was once in a hot dense, state, has baryonic matter, non-baryonic matter and dark energy, etc.
  14. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Ignorant "I think Dark Matter has something to do with the creation of spacetime filaments" gibberish.
  15. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Ignorant "Pure energy and magnetism ..." gibberish.
  16. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: Ignorant "Maybe Pure energy and Magnetism create Dark Matter ..." gibberish.
  17. 14 November 2019 pittsburghjoe: An deluded "You're just mad I killed Dark Energy " lie when all he writes about dark matter is abysmally ignorant gibberish.
