Oddball sexaquark particles could be immortal, if they exist at all

This is the first convincing "candidate" I've seen for dark matter, which I've been ready to dismiss as cosmological fiction for just that reason. As well as being totally stable, sexaquarks would apparently not interact with ordinary matter -- or each other. There would be something in the six-quark arrangement that would cancel out the strong force and they would (presumably) be electrically neutral as well, all of which would explain the non-interaction, so they might form clouds but never really congeal into physical bodies of any kind....

What if sexaquarks were the darkest of all forms of matter, the fabric of space itself. Could explain why the universe is speeding up.

If there are sexaquarks they should show up in the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, though if they are electrically neutral they would be hard to distinguish from neutrons and neutrinos. I presume that the AMS has not found anything suspiciously like a "hexaquark", as it would make a big splash in the news.
