in reply to A better term than "DarkPAN"?

I like "DarkPAN", it's a bit like dark matter in astronomy/cosmology: We don't know exactly how much there is out there, how it looks and if our explanations for it actually match reality.

Of course we might have to look for a better name once the scientist provide some solid information about dark matter.

    And if there isn't enough DarkPAN, then the Perl universe doesn't have enough mass to keep itself from flying apart.

    Like you, I quite like DarkPAN but, unlike dark matter, wonder how it's existence can be inferred from external phenomena ?


    Of course !!! Now why didn't I think of it earlier ?

    We can infer it from implications contained in not infrequent postings on this and other, perl sites...
