While the error bars have shrunk dramatically, current constraints are still roughly consistent with the specific model that was originally quoted as the best fit in the late 1990s — a component contributing about 70% to the current energy budget with an equation-of-state ratio w ' −1. This has led some in the particle physics and cosmology community to suspect that dark energy really is just the cosmological constant Λ and that its unnaturally small value is the product of a multiverse, such as would arise from the framework of eternal inflation or from the landscape picture of string theory, which generically features an enormous a number of vacua, each with a different value for Λ.

The modified field equations used by Carmeli describe a universe that would be expected from a reading of the Bible. That is, a galactocentric universe—the Milky Way galaxy being at the centre of the universe.
