We discuss enhancements of the cross section in particle-antiparticle scattering, of a type not expected in quantum field theory, however predicted in the quantum gravity theoretical framework discussed in Refs [1, 2, 3]. The first events of this kind are to be found in the energy range between some 111 GeV and 130 GeV, with a stronger peak around 125-126 GeV, and weaker ones around 114 GeV and 130 GeV. The strongest peak turns out to correspond to the resonance which is usually interpreted as due to a Higgs boson, whereas the other ones are compatible with astrophysical observations devoted to inspect the presence of Dark Matter. This approach provides a no-Higgs, no Dark Matter explanation for the observed excess of photon production, which does not result from fine-tuning of parameters chosen ad-hoc in a particular model, but naturally fits within the theoretical scenario described in –. Further peaks are expected to appear at higher energy. They show up separated from each other by energy steps much wider than a typical resonance width. Being isolated and of moderate intensity, they may be more difficult to single out over the statistical fluctuations of background events.
