But if there is something that we all should agree on is that nature has the tendency of repeating herself with same/similar mathematical constructs for the different fundamental forces. This means that sometimes the answer to a puzzling question lies not in invoking an unknown, invisible, non measurable entity, but simply into better understanding the mathematical construct we are using to analyze it.

Luckily, more researchers are now finally moving out of such mental constrains and starting to look for more simplistic and observable models.

Here is a fresh paper from Nature's "Scientific Reports" that in an elegant way gets rid of the need of dark mater by creating a mathematical model that treats Entropy as a "complement of information" and by doing so, coherently explaining galaxies shapes among other things.

The title is:

*Maximum Entropy (Most Likely) Double Helical and Double Logarithmic Spiral Trajectories in Space-Time*PDF available HERE or HERE

A worthwhile read for anyone interested in the field.
