1. Introduction

Prof. J. Ayer left his position as the Provost of University College, London University (Ayer, 1952, 1954, 1985) just as I became a Ph.D. post graduate student in engineering. However, I was able to learn a few things being a great adherent to his rejection of “metaphysics” and his enthusiasm for Reichenbach scientific positivistic philosophy (Ayer, 1952, 1954, 1985; Heidegger, 2006; Heisenberg, 1969; Reichenbach, 1951). However I started very early to realize that there is also a great deal of limitation in “positivism” which I learn about first from W. Heisenberg and particularly his book “Der Teil und das Ganze” (Heisenberg, 1969) and later on from encountering C.F. von Weizäcker. Ayer pointed out a misconception regarding metaphysics which persisted due to the writing of M. Heidegger (Heidegger, 2006). Metaphysics is not something higher than physics but a term simply used by Aristotle in his book to point out that after the chapters dealing with physics, now comes the next “meta” chapter on things after dealing with physics (Ayer, 1952, 1954, 1985). Nevertheless the common praxis is to look at metaphysics as the “foundation” of fundamental concepts in physics such as space and time. In fact in England metaphysics is what we call more often natural philosophy. G. Cantor, the founder of transfinite set theory, uses metaphysics as identical to pure mathematics and mathematical philosophy. He said for instance “ohne ein quintchen Metaphysics lässt sich meine überzeugung keine exacte wissenshaft treiben”. We will examine a proposed connection between dark energy and “meta” physics.

2. Analysis

In what follows we will look at the fundamental problem connected to what we call dark energy. Dark energy may be called meta energy because it is the manifestation of a meta spacetime which is there only in not being there in the ordinary meaning of the word. Dark energy comes from the empty set in an incredible and direct way. The empty set is given in transfinite set theory via a simple realization of K-theory due to the work of first, A. Conne and Penrose and second, the present author.


where is the Menger-Urysohn deductive topological dimension and is the Hausdorff dimension corresponding to the just mentioned topological dimension. The pseudo five dimensional volume of D() is given by (El Naschie, 2013c, 2014d, 2014e)

Together with the zero set




they form the world sheet of string theory:


The relative density is therefore




The corresponding Einstein reduced energy density is thus (El Naschie, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c)




exactly as derived in previous publications (El Naschie, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c, 2014e). We note that the rational approximation of equation (9) is E(D) = mc2(21/22) while the rational approximation of Equation (8) is the by now well known extended Einstein equation (El Naschie, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c, 2014d, 2014e, 2014f, 2014g, 2014h; Marek-Crnjac, 2013)


It is also important that our theory is inclusive as opposed to exclusive in the sense that they unite the opposed view point in a manner not dissimiar to Hegel’s dialectic philosophy. Thus our spacetime is both open and closed topologically, i.e. clopen (El Naschie, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c, 2014d, 2014e, 2014f, 2014g, 2014h; MarekCrnjac, 2013). In addition it is infinite and finite by virtue of Klein-Penrose hyperbolic fractal tiling of ‘t HooftSusskind holographic boundary. It is a true coincidencia opposotorium forming a higher reality but in an exact mathematical meaning (El Naschie, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c, 2014d, 2014e, 2014f, 2014g, 2014h; Marek-Crnjac, 2013).

3. Conclusion

Looking at the wider philosophical picture of physics and cosmology it seems to be beneficial for understanding the deep meaning of modern cosmological observations to regard dark energy as meta energy, despite the reservations prevailing among the current scientific mainstream against “meta” physics.
