I meant sharing bandwidth, CPU cycles, memory.... Like I'd like all my devices to be one big super computer with local interfaces. So I could play GTA on my weak android tablet, for instance. I'm always frustrated at the slowness of my old work laptop when it's less than 2 feet away from my brand new i7 with 16gb of ram.

A. There is a fundamental aspect of space/time we don't understand. (Maybe there is some type of Aether?)
B. We don't understand gravity over long distances. (Maybe it has a different effect over longer distances than we are aware)
C. We are not measuring something else properly. Light, time, distance....?

This whole "dark matter" thing has been unreasonably preposterous from the word go.
