Well, brains are composed essentially of hundreds on hundreds of curled-up tubes interlocking to form the brain structure we're familiar with. Can it really be a coincidence that the structure of the standard brain (which is pretty much universal across all species) has such fundamental links with the topography of the Universe and the dimensions intersecting it?
This picture is from a Daily Mail article published in 2011 (linked behind the image) which explores the WIMP candidacy - so clearly, we're stirring the same soup as we were stirring many years ago, and it's unsurprising that the trail on the plate has gone a little bit cold by now.
Me? I'm betting my lifetime will see things get a lot worse. Maybe there is no getting better to look forward to. Maybe Dark Matter is so powerful that it can effortlessly crush the illumination promised by Light and will con us into believing all kinds of propagandist junk for long enough to assure the destruction of the world we live on. Maybe Dark Matter is well versed in this tactic, as Fermi's Paradox might possibly suggest. The article linked here breaks down to the following extract:
"In general, solutions to Fermi's paradox come down to either 1) life is difficult to start and evolve (either hard for the process or hard to find the right conditions) or 2) advanced civilizations destroy themselves on short timescales. In other words, this is an important problem to solve in the hope that it is 1 and not 2."
