Is Dark Matter Only the Tip of an Invisible Universe of Unknown Forces?

This possibility has led to a hunt for “dark photons.” Such photons are analogous to ordinary photons, but they are exchanged among particles of dark matter, and according to some models, they may have mass.

The latest search for dark photons at the Large Hadron Collider, however, has come up empty.
Oh … rats.
“The discovery of the dark photon could explain many of the mysteries of the universe, such as the nature of dark matter, while directly addressing experimental observations, such as recent tensions between the muon moment measurements and the Standard Model, and anomalies in cosmic ray observations,” physicist Cris Panda at UC Berkeley wrote in an email to The Daily Galaxy. “This breakthrough discovery could start a new era of Physics in which a myriad of new particles and physical laws are discovered in a short period of time.

In 2018 a team of researchers from the University of California and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory conducted an ultra-precise measurement of the fine-structure constant, and in so doing, have found evidence that casts doubts on dark photon theory.
OH … Rats.
The researchers report that the number they calculated closely matched the theory, which offers some confirmation of theories that suggest electrons are not made up of smaller, unknown particles. But it also casts doubt on theories surrounding the existence of dark photons.
OH … RATS!

Considering the title and the fact that the author appears to be a gnome believer, I’m wondering what was the purpose of this article? Just to get his name in print? Because it certainly doesn't strengthen the case for mainstream astrophysics gnomes. Just saying ...

Of course it does strengthen their case. The article presents dark matter as a given, but puts other stuff into question, all the while refering back to dark matter as something that does not need explanation, it's existence is fundamental and known to everyone...

The base of the fantasy science is there. Next article will build the next level: "Fantastic particles give clues about dark photons!". Of course without questioning dark photons, and dark matter is already forgotten as a topic of discussion.
