The problem with defining "Dark Matter" as Matter is that it seems apparent that it is "Dark" because it cannot carry an electrical charge.

...we know of. But there might very well be a force we didn't pick up yet. Maybe not electrical.

Great & thought-provoking thread, thanks!

Makes me wonder whether we should be calling Dark Matter something a little more like: 'Soul Matter'..?

That has a nice feel to it, and as you said, it's quite possible that such a theory might well support all of the non-physical phenomena which we as humans are familiar with (OOBE, NDE, remote viewing, etc).

Interesting times!

This doesn't prevent Dark Matter to interact in other ways with normal matter - Weak Interaction is in fact one of them. That is, the force involved in radioactivity and particle decay.

I once saw a shadow like being, weak reaction or not I thought it as involving dark matter in a way.

Can you elaborate on that?

OK so this is me offering a contrast..



Why do some physicists think that dark matter interacts via the weak interaction? Is there evidence of that, or is it theoretically likely, or is it just the easy option to test?




This is due to the (at this point mostly historical) 'WIMP miracle'.  I'll try to summarize.

The initial conditions of the universe were (probably) set by the decay of a scalar field known as the inflaton into standard model particles.  No one knows its preferred decay channel (whether it predominantly decays into photons, fermions, neutrinos, the Higgs, etc).  It turns out that for the standard model particles, this doesn't matter:  you have a very hot and dense early universe, and particle interactions happen all over the place, and very quickly the universe reaches a thermal distribution of the types of particles--this sets the ratios of all the fundamental particles to what they should be.

If the dark matter particle didn't interact at all, then there's no way for it to be produced in this spate of temperature-inspired particle interactions.  Since it's unlikely that the inflaton would decay in just the right amount to give the density of dark matter we see today, you want it to interact just a little bit, so that in the early universe, it can be thermally produced.  Too much though, and we'd have noticed it in the sky.  The weak force provides such an interaction term, with particles at the characteristic electroweak scale (~100 GeV) giving cross sections (interactions with the standard model) of ⟨σ(χχ→S.M.)v⟩≃3×10−26m3s⟨σ(χχ→S.M.)v⟩≃3×10−26cm3s, which is low enough that WIMP to standard model interactions should be vanishingly improbable today, but high enough for thermal production in the early universe. The WIMP miracle is that a particle around that mass with around the predicted cross section gives around the right proportions for the amount of dark matter relative to normal matter (1000% or so). 

The problem is we've looked at particles in that mass range pretty hard (with both direct detection experiments like LUX and particle accelerators like the LHC) and haven't found anything.  So a 'standard' WIMP is all but excluded, and 'nonstandard' WIMPs are decidedly less miraculous.

Would dark matter be some by product of dark energy that got condensed due to a funnel like force and would be a gastly form of matter that connect s, spreads, or even dispate all that extra, extra dark energy.

Where if it got condensed, made an explosion in the sea of dark energy but to.us it imploded in itself.

As your quote from Quora points out, Dark Matter is a bit of a mystery in itself.

At this point, my own work on Dark Matter may come in handy. I've developed a preon model which models pretty much all of the Standard Model's particles. However, it also predicts the existence of dark matter particles. I was a able to derive the properties of such DM particles, including their mass. 13.4 GeV.

Fast forward a couple of months. I realise that galactic black holes might very well act as gigantic particle accelerators. These black holes would not only be crushing normal matter, but also dark matter as well! I take a look at the spectrum emitted by black holes all over the universe.

Guess what I find... a bright peak, right at the 13.4 GeV energies.

I think it's possible that as a result, the weak interaction cross-section of such particles might actually be larger than others have expected.
