About dark matter. Nobody knows what it could be. It’s really just a place holder name for something we don’t understand in the same way that you would name a variable “x” in math an solve for x. As of now, the most intelligent minds in physics, math and astronomy are trying to solve this so far unsolved “equation”. I can honestly say that I do not yet have the knowledge required to make predictions about the behavior of “dark matter”. One day I will, but that’s a few years off.
I can share with you some of the conflicting theories about “dark matter”. Are you aware that some physicists and mathematicians are arguing that it doesn’t even exist, or that it is not as significant as we have predicted? The media has had such a frenzy with “dark matter” that this is often overlooked. The famous physicist and mathematician Roger Penrose argues for a Cyclic cosmos (and has been for a while). This video is just a brief introduction to those ideas and you can watch more of his stuff on youtube: (link to video here)
What’s cool about Penrose’s theories is they give us, or at least claim to give us, and Idea of what the cosmos looked like before the Big Bang.
He claims that the Cosmic Background Radiation is evidence for a Cyclic Cosmos and that this explains the strange non uniformity of the WMAP (Cosmic Background Radiation):

As for wormholes. Those are a bit unlikely in my mind, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. As of now, they only exist hypothetically, but Einstein’s cosmological constant once existed only hypothetically too. As science progresses we will be more confident in confirming of denying the existence of wormholes.
And about Quasars ab black holes. I don’t have any special theories of my own on the subjects, but for those of you who don’t know, a Quasar is just a special case of a black hole. Quasars are the super bright, extremely fast moving, super hot region just around a super-massive black hole that shoots beams of charged partials. Pretty freaking cool if you ask me. Artist’s concept of a Quasar:
Thanks for the ask!
