They propose a stable meson (quark-antiquark pair). The mesons involving light quarks decay rapidly. Do they propose a new type of quark? That's practically ruled out by Big Big nucleosynthesis models, unless it's extremely heavy. If it's heavy, why is it stable?  Seems to take a lot of fine-tuning.

"Big Big" should read "Big Bang". I blame the cold medicine.

yeah, I'm not buying it either.   Since we're having such trouble pinning it down, it's either completely new types of particles that we just haven't been able to create and/or detect in the LHC yet, or it's something beyond our capability of ever detecting.

Perhaps the warping of space-time is caused by something outside of our own universe that we can't interact with other than with gravitation... like a bulge on one side of a membrane caused by a finger on the other side of a membrane that we can never see or detect directly, or even significantly interact with unless we master gravity/anti-gravity to push back.

I read another article a while back proposing that dark matter is actually normal particles that have become trapped vibrating in Kaluza-Klein dimensions other than our 4-D space-time and can't re-emerge because when our 3 primary dimensions expanded, others contracted leaving the particles without enough "space" to wiggle out to vibrate back to our everyday 3 dimensions...   and for some reason, gravity is the only force they can interact with "normal" particles because it can bleed through dimensions.

There are a LOT of ideas out there.   I don't expect us to find any answers in my lifetime, though.  These sorts of things would probably require higher energies than the LHC is capable of... or even its successor.

Gravity from dark matter is just gravity from the nearest alternate quantum probabilities "leaking" through.

FYI  do not reddit search simp .... i mean unless youre into nsfw things of an adult nature ... then by all means do exactly that.

They were masturbating over Axions for a while. well they'll get it right some day.

I'm honestly not sure why either of those things come up. I haven't heard of it as a term for a guy being submissive in a relationship, or what us apparently old people call whipped, but the things you're talking about... Not sure at all.
