  • Abstract

    Inflation leads to Ω = 1 for the big bang universe, and which is indeed observed. However, the presence of two mysterious constituents in the big bang universe – dark energy and dark matter – also produces Ω = 1. This paper utilizes propositions about the nature of dark energy and dark matter to trace their origins to the contents of the inflationary universe.
