Theory of Everything - Standard Model 2.0
Suppose that the milky way, the solar system, and the earth each have a co-moving "halo" of dark matter particles surrounding them, rarely interacting with normal matter (possibly consisting of 5 particle and 2 particle composite "neutrinos"). Suppose these dark matter "halos" are "bound" to the milky way, solar system, earth etc due to these dark matter particles traveling at less than than the escape velocity of their respective objects (milky way, solar system, earth). Since dark matter particles don't interact with matter as they "fall" under the influence of gravity, for example, towards the earth, they pass straight through and out the other side, before turning around at a certain point in space determined by their velocity, then falling and passing through the earth again, assuming they initially travel at less than escape velocity.

It is known that as light travels through transparent substances such as glass or water, the light travels at considerably lower speeds than light in a vacuum, as determined by the refractive index of the substance.


"Light travels at approximately 300,000 kilometers per second in a vacuum, which has a refractive index of 1.0, but it slows down to 225,000 kilometers per second in water (refractive index = 1.3; see Figure 1) and 200,000 kilometers per second in glass (refractive index of 1.5)."


I theorize the speed of light in a vacuum varies according to the local density of dark matter, much like the speed of light varies in materials with differing refractive indices, such as water or glass.

If the dark matter halos surrounding the earth, solar system and milky way are in fact co-moving with these objects, perhaps it explains the null-result of the Michelson-Morley experiment.–...experiment

In other words I propose simply that the density of co-moving dark matter halos surrounding various local astronomical objects (milky way, solar system, earth, etc) "limits" the speed of light proportionally with dark matter density, such that light travels faster than the locally measured value in areas of the universe with lower dark matter density than the "average local value."

Possible evidence for this includes the "flyby anomaly..."


"Possible explanations[edit]
There have been a number of proposed explanations of the flyby anomaly, including:

A dark-matter halo around Earth.


...and the "Pioneer anomaly..."


"...It is possible that deceleration is caused by gravitational forces from unidentified sources such as the Kuiper belt or dark matter."
