I think there's way too much fantasy on the subject on Dark Matter. People tend to treat it as a special brand of matter - that i could have
fantastic properties and potential. In truth all Dark Matter is just matter that can't be detected with light. In fact, to an astronomer not on
earth, you are Dark Matter. He doesn't know exactly where you are, or what kind of properties you have - but he does know that you are a mass that
isn't accounted for yet. Heck, he might be shocked to see that your gravitational imprint moves around pretty erratically, and also seems to spend a
lot of time orbitting other pieces of dark matter like yourself.
All I'm saying is that Dark Matter really isn't that important. We are finding out more about the structure and composition of our universe by
studying it - but little more. I think more of our studies should go towards studying strange subatomic particles and energies (like
micro-singularities) - something that will help us out much more than finding out what the universe is made of.
But then again... that's just my view on this. I'm sure that you consider Dark Matter to be very fascinating, and I hope that the results of this
study aid you somehow.
