Abstract

In the same way as the realization of some of the famous gedanken experiments imagined by the founding fathers of quantum mechanics has recently led to the current renewal of the interpretation of quantum physics, it seems that the most recent progresses of observational astrophysics can be interpreted as the realization of some cosmological gedanken experiments such as the removal from the universe of the whole visible matter or the cosmic time travel leading to a new cosmological standard model. This standard model involves two dark components of the universe, dark energy and dark matter. Whereas dark energy is usually associated with the cosmological constant, we propose to interpret dark matter in terms of a pure vibration energy due to positive curvature and held by quarks and/or by a gluon Bose Einstein condensate accompanying baryonic matter at the hadronization transition from the quark gluon plasma phase to the colorless hadronic phase. Such an interpretation, partially based on mass formulae in terms of energy and spin in de Sitter and Anti de Sitter respectively, would comfort the idea that, apart from the violation of the matter/antimatter symmetry satisfying the Sakharov’s conditions, the reconciliation of particle physics and cosmology does not need the recourse to any ad hoc fields, particles or hidden variables.
