We generally have thought of darkness as the absence of light. Howitt argues that darkness is a different kind of light, which he calls "black light." He develops this novel proposition in the context of recent developments in physics and astrophysics related to black holes, dark matter, and dark energy. He prefers to call dark matter "black matter" and dark energy "black light." Black matter is what space, and all existents, are fundamentally comprised of, and is of a different nature, physics, and dimensional system than what our senses observe and our technology can detect. Not only is black matter a formally different kind of matter, but it emits black light, a formally different kind of light.

This new framework may provide superior and simpler answers to the problems of the geometric limits of the observable universe, what space is, what the fundamental constituents of the observable universe are, what gravity is, understanding quantum phenomena, the mechanism of cause of the observable universe, and other fundamental problems of astrophysics. Howitt describes how his theory relates to the theories of other physicists, the experiments at CERN, and the activities of space agencies. This book suggests new areas of research for physics, and will also promote readers' creative thoughts about the universe and what lies behind and beyond the world we can observe.
