In one breath:

To reach this 'maximum disorder' the dark matter must have had to collide within itself, just as gas molecules do, so as to reach equilibrium in which its density, pressure, and temperature are related.

After a deep inhalation:

Two dark matter particles could interact and disappear in a process which is highly improbable, but which would be characteristic of their nature.

Make up your minds?
or
WTF?

They are not always head-on collisions.  Sometimes it's just a fender bender and often it's just road rage with each particle veering off in a new direction as they shout profanities at each other.

So, dark matter is just dumb matter, stuff that never figure out how to get organized? The Big Bang's flubs?
