So I'm confused. :)

Actually, I've given it some thought.  People in the mainstream
Looniverse KNOW it is metafictional energy.  People in LNHY would just
consider it to be some supernatural energy.  In a universe like our
own where people don't think they are part of a story and don't
necessarily believe in the supernatural there would be a desire to pin
down a theory as to what is going on just as scientists in the real
world would like to be able to determine for sure that Dark Matter is
neutrilinos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutralino [I'm sorry but
the name neutrilino still cracks me up.  If 90% of the matter of the
universe is composed of neutrilinos science teachers are going to have
a hard time keeping a straight face talking about them.]) and what, if
anything, that has to do with Dark Energy.  I think that in the LNH20
Looniverse there would be some active research into retrocotheric
energy / Kurtzberg radiation / Dark radiation whatever and any
suggestion that it was "metafictional energy" would be considered
kooky. :)
