### Dark Matter, My theory

I have a stupid theory for what Dark Matter really is, it is just a thought that crossed my mind a few days ago, I am just curios to know if anyone has ever thought of this in the past.

The good thing about the theory is that it is easy to prove or to falsify (it probably has been falsified, who knows) I just what to share it. and well obviously with "theory" I simply mean "a guess"

So what is dark matter?

It is assumed that gravity and light travel at the same speed, but that assumption has never been proven with certainty, it could be that gravity (gravitational waves) travel slightly slower than the speed of light.

If this where true, then the light that we see form distant galaxies is younger than the gravity that we can detect, when we see a distant galaxy 1,000,000,000 light years away, we see light that is 1,000,000,000 years old, but we detect gravity that is older than that (say 10,000,000 years older)

dark matter is simply the gravity of dead stars, we can not see their light but we can detect their gravity. if a star died 1,000,000,001 years ago we would no see the star, it but we could detect its gravity.

the theory is very easy to prove or to falsify, just find a galaxy that is 1,000,000,000 light years away, based on model of stellar evolution, we could predict how many stars where there 1,000,000,000 years ago and 1,000,000,010 years ago, if the differential of stars accounts for the mass attributed to dark matter, the theory would be correct, if not it would be falsified. ...........

brief summery.
