8) Behind the Scenes
It has been around since the very beginning, during which time its own structure has evolved from a homogeneous clump into a universal web, with a network of filaments and nodes that have the ability to collect and compresses ordinary matter, because there is something Dark Matter does interact with – Gravity. The very first atoms formed were attracted towards the nodes in the Dark Matter web. Vast quantities of Hydrogen and Helium (that’s pretty much all there was at this point) fell inwards, into the bones of the dark matter skeleton. the pressure of gravity increased as they bundled together into gigantic clouds, and they became denser, and denser, until the forces acting upon them made them start to swirl.
