    Dark Matter? Energy?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6156110.stm

    I've been googling around trying to understand this article, can someone dumb down and explain dark energy and dark matter? My last science teacher was trying to explain ti to me a few days ago and I'm not quite grasping I guess.

    Exactly, too abstract for me. Fabric of space? WTF? Is it a sheet?

    It's the stuff beyond the edge of infinity that dreams are made of...or more better known as the force stretching the canvas of our universe across its frame as the powers that be or not be paint what they will before our eyes and as our eyes and hands and feet and the stuff beneath your toes and the light illuminating the moon outside your window tonight and all those stars twinkling at the tip of your nose...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Do you know the atom? Someone get me a picture of the atom. Anyway do you know that space between electrons? That is supposed to be dark matter and it has dark energy. If you think about it the universe has more dark matter than real matter and now you enter quantum mechanics. That is what I understand about it but I am not sure.

    Inside a box of shit, you have shit. But what else is in the box, what is between the shit? There is air.

    Inside the universe, there is also alot of shit. But what is between the shit? Dark matter.

    How is it different than nothing? How can it be energy or matter if it's nothing?

    Because without that nothing being something our something would become a lot of nothing and we would fall right through the bottom of the universe...

    Think of a fabric, like a sock then think of stench on that sock, then think of us as that stench and the sock as dark matternow reverse your perception of it where you see the stench and smell the fabric, but then take away your sense of smell...that's the fabric of the universe
