  Why are my posts considered to be "fruitless speculation"?

+ 0 like - 3 dislike

Why is correctly understanding it is the dark matter that is the medium that waves in a double-slit experiment considered to be "fruitless speculation" by graduate level physicists?


Isn't understanding dark matter is what de Broglie referred to as the sub-quantum medium fruitful?

This is not graduate-level again, voting to close

What's not graduate-level? Correctly understanding dark matter is the medium that waves in a double-slit experiment?

I explained why on the other thread. Opening new threads does not change this.

With some care, you can ask such vague questions on https://www.physicsforums.com

Wave-particle duality is a moving particle and its associated wave in the superfluid dark matter.

Seems pretty straightforward to me.
