is that Penrose “bullseye” in the background radiation really real, or a joke?

are you familiar with Dr. Randell Mills’ “Unified Field Theory” published in three volumes on his website In it he concludes there was a Big Crunch that did not return to a point, but to a certain mass density where opposing force retards the gravity. He says globular clusters are remnants of the last crunch. What do you think of that?

If Hydrogen went below rest state (cf. Randell Mills “hydrinos”) and became non-reactive, i.e. the WIMP particle, they would release energy, i.e. “dark energy”. He claims this is what heats solar corona above the 8% increase due to magnetic field lines, among other things…. Certainly the distribution of Dark Energy, Dark Matter, and Hydrogen itself certainly overlap within limits of error. What is to disprove Mills’ theory, or the fact that the WIMP is “relaxed” non-reactive Hydrogen?
