Dark Matter Particle is a Neutral Electron

Authors: Antonio Puccini

Cosmological observations showed that the ordinary matter, or ordinary visible mass, is only  4% of the total mass of the Universe. Non observable mass, or missing mass, is  96% of the total mass, of which 23% is invisible matter, or Dark Matter (DM). Cosmological considerations seem to exclude that the DM is under the shape of a normal baryonic matter. Therefore, the Dark Matter Particle (DMP) very probably is a lepton particle. The DMP was formed in the first fractions of second after the Big Bang. In order not to contradict the value of the critical density of the universe ordinary matter, the primordial nucleosynthesis can have generated only light elements and particles. DMP has existed since the Big Bang, this means it is a very stable particle. Moreover, since it does not emit and does not reflect light, and it never interacts with ordinary matter or with other DMPs, it implies that it is insensitive to Electro-Magnetic and Nuclear Interactions, therefore it is a neutral particle. Thus the DMP is a stable, light, neutral, non-interacting lepton. It was supposed to be a neutrino but, still in relation to nucleosynthesis, the value of its infinitely small mass, i.e. ≤0.01 electronic masses, contradicts the value of critical density. For opposite reasons, even WIMPs cannot identify with DMP (the value attributed to their mass is excessive: ≥ 100 proton masses). Therefore we may think of an electron, but they carry electric charge, and highly react with the surrounding matter. It does not work. Unless we assume the DMP can equally identify with an electron, but without the electric charge: a neutral electron (e°). According to Majorana’s mathematical formalism, the mathematical substrate in support of the e°, leads to consider it as a self-conjugated spinor, where the charge conjugation may give it a certain stability and make it unable to interact. The physical substrate is represented by the lack of a R process on the e°. Consequently, it will never, or almost never, undergo a Wave Function Collapse, so it will not be traceable as a common particle, but, according to Quantum Mechanics, it keeps travelling as a wave, undisturbed, delocalized, and propagating as a superimposition of quantum states.
