The Dark Universe Hypothesis

"I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim,
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,without knowledge or lustre or name."
–from Nemesis, by H.P. Lovecraft

"The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." –Obi-Wan Kenobi

"Dark Energy is what gives a Cosmist his power.  It's an energy field created by the universal void.  It surrounds us and penetrates us.  It drives the galaxies apart." –Sean the Sorcerer

I very much enjoy wild, mystic speculations and unbounded explorations of the most outrageous metaphysical paradigms imaginable, as I attempt to make some sense of life, the multiverse, everything and nothing.  I am a refugee from reason, a renegade scientist turned sorcerer, a dissident from consensus reality, a refuter of rationality, and the most supple-minded person you are likely to ever meet.  I do not use drugs of any kind, am brutally sane and lucid at all times, and consider poetry the language of the gods.  My greatest pleasure is inventing new models of the universe, with little regard for any empirical facts or chains of reasoning, because I know that the mere act of imagining them makes them true.  I pull new paradigms out of my posterior, and consider them equal – or superior – to anything yet offered by the minds of men.

Today I would like to expound upon a magical model as profound as any other: the darkest of all cosmologies, the strangest of all ontologies, which I call the Dark Universe Hypothesis.  Cosmologists speak of a substance called Dark Energy, which permeates the Cosmos but cannot be seen, detected or affected by any instrumentality we possess.  This illusory matter comprises three-fourths of the mass-energy of the universe, we are told, and is the force which propels the universe outward into the empty manifold that is Einsteinian space.

I hereby boldly posit that Dark Energy is the fundamental force of all existence; that our universe began in a Big Bang which was a fluctuation of such energy in a larger multiversal void.  Our universe is a fluke a freak disturbance in the Force, a negentropic anomaly, an abomination, with absolutely no reason to exist.  We are creatures of this mindless energy, and are driven by its current to ourselves expand outward into the larger stream of universal becoming by sending rockets ever deeper in space and time, probing ever further with our telescopes and minds, in search of the dark entity which is the source of all our power.

This universe is intelligent, but insane; lawful, but incomprehensible; alive, but utterly amoral.  The Lord of the Cosmos is a demiurge, not a God; it is Yaldabaoth, Son of Chaos; it is evolution; it is a wheel spinning endlessly in the void.  Dark Energy is the Force which surrounds and penetrates us, which drives the galaxies apart and gives the Chaos Magi and the Dark Side Jedi their power.

The Light that birthed this universe was a fleeting whim; the galaxies are growing dim; the Darkness will forever more ascend.  The Cosmos is going black; the stars are fleeing fast, as they ride the dark flow into the infinite void.  Dark Energy is life, intelligence and will, prime mover of matter, you and me, our origin and our final destiny.

Let there be Darkness....
