      Review text

      The article makes an interesting relationship about a set of properties of modern physics with a necessarily philosophical survey. Although the topic is of relevance to the scientific community, it is more of a context indicator than a response based on the axiomatic method. In turn, the questions posed and the hypotheses, which are based on Aristotelian arguments insofar as they translate fundamentals of classical theory, the article developes an analysis that combines with unmathematical hypotheses. However, taling about philosophy in cosmology is not the same as arguing with solid bases of calculation, for example. It is about nature for the most party contradictory, and giving the idea of hypotheses included from the "terms used in Anaximander", is merely devoid of contribution, but what we call limited. On the other hand, it is an article that successively deals with empirical knowledge and therefore constitutes one more source of matter to know nature (phusis) and its artificial objects in terms of dark matter and, of course, black holes as well as moved by the mystery. As for the bibliographic references, it should be considered that they are relevant to the article.
