  If dark matter is a supersolid that fills 'empty' space, then is the state of displacement of the supersolid dark matter the physical manifestation of curved spacetime?

Dark matter fills 'empty' space, strongly interacts with ordinary matter and is displaced by ordinary matter. 

This Dark Matter Theory Could Solve a Celestial Conundrum

our galaxy is swimming in a superfluid sea

Dark Matter More Ubiquitous Than We Ever Thought

dark matter is smooth, distributed more evenly throughout space than we thought

Robert B. Laughlin, Nobel Laureate in Physics, endowed chair in physics, Stanford University, had this to say:

the empty vacuum of space … is filled with 'stuff'

Laughlin’s ‘stuff’ is the smoothly distributed, strongly interacting, supersolid dark matter that fills ‘empty’ space and is displaced by ordinary matter.

Einstein: Ether and Relativity

According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there would be no propagation of light

Einstein’s ether is the dark matter that fills ‘empty’ space and is displaced by ordinary matter.

the state of the [ether] is at every place determined by connections with the matter and the state of the ether in neighbouring places

The state of the dark matter at every place determined by its connections with the ordinary matter and the state of the dark matter in neighboring places is the state of displacement of the dark matter.

The Milky Way's dark matter halo appears to be lopsided

the dark matter halo of the Milky Way is dominantly lopsided in nature.

The Milky Way's halo is lopsided due to the ordinary matter in the Milky Way moving through and displacing the dark matter, analogous to a submarine moving through and displacing the water.

Offset between dark matter and ordinary matter

the gravitational potential in clusters is mainly due to a non-baryonic fluid

The center of the light lensing through the space neighboring the galaxy clusters and the center of the galaxy clusters themselves is offset due to the galaxy clusters moving through and displacing the dark matter, analogous to submarines moving through and displacing the water.

NASA's Gravity Probe B Confirms Two Einstein Space-Time Theories

Imagine the Earth as if it were immersed in honey. As the planet rotates, the honey around it would swirl, and it's the same with space and time

Honey has mass and so does the strongly interacting dark matter. The swirl is the state of displacement of the dark matter connected to and neighboring the Earth.

The strongly interacting dark matter displaced by the Earth pushing back and exerting pressure toward the Earth is gravity. What is referred to geometrically as curved spacetime physically exists in nature as the state of displacement of the dark matter. The state of displacement of the strongly interacting dark matter is gravity.

Dark matter is likely a sea of massive dark photons which are displaced by the ordinary matter.

Glenn Randall talks about dark matter

dark matter might interact with itself via some yet unknown dark force … the particles could be something we call dark photons … the dark photon would have mass

The massive dark photons displaced by the Earth pushing back and exerting pressure toward the Earth is gravity. What is referred to geometrically as curved spacetime physically exists in nature as the state of displacement of the massive dark photons. The state of displacement of the massive dark photons is gravity.

The state of displacement of the sea of massive dark photons is the quantization of gravity.
