Abstract

In a recent Foundations of Physics paper [5] by the current author it was shown that, when the self force problem of classical electrodynamics is properly solved, it becomes a plausible ontology underlying the statistical description of quantum mechanics. In the current paper we extend this result, showing that ordinary matter, thus represented, possibly suffices in explaining the outstanding observations currently requiring for this task the contrived notions of dark-matter, dark-energy and inflation. The single mandatory `fix' to classical electrodynamics, demystifying both very small and very large scale physics, should be contrasted with other ad hoc solutions to either problems. Instrumental to our cosmological model is scale covariance (and `spontaneous breaking' thereof), a formal symmetry of classical electrodynamics treated on equal footing with its Poincare covariance, which is incompatible with the (absolute) metrical attributes of the GR metric tensor.
