This article made me wonder about the possibility of a continuum of matter. Could part of the problem in identifying dark matter be that only part of the spectrum of matter is observable by our senses and sensors? As there are sound waves above and below the frequencies we can hear, and light waves we can’t see with our eyes, could it be that matter has properties that make it invisible to us at certain “frequencies”? This may explain some of the anomalies in the layering of dark matter.
