The TGD Based View about Dark Matter at the Level of Molecular Biology

Matti Pitkanen


The notion of dark matter as phases of ordinary matter with effective Planck constant heff  = nh0 is the basic prediction of the number theoretic vision about Topological Geometrodynamics (TGD). This article is devoted to the possible role of magnetic body (MB) and dark matter in chemistry and biology. The first group of questions relates to the role of dark protons and electrons in ordinary and organic chemistry. Could the protons donated by acids be dark? What about the protons of hydrogen bonds? What about biologically important ions? What about oxidation and reduction: are the electrons involved dark: do valence electrons have heff  > h? Second group of questions relates to the role of the MB carrying dark matter in biochemistry. Does the transition to biochemistry involve Pollack effect in which the fraction 1/4 of protons becomes dark and is transferred to magnetic flux tubes? Do dark protons form triplets forming analogs of basic biomolecules, which would be only secondary representations?
