[ExI] Holeums: "Atoms" of Dark Matter

Whether the existence of these things is confirmed or not, this is probably the 
coolest theoretical particle physics I have come across since quarks. Multiple 
microscopic black holes of less than a planck mass gravitationally bound 
together into a quantum mechanically described atom-like 

stucture called a "holeum". They are theorized to take up space, have 
quantitized energy levels including a "ground state", and emit a spectrum of 
gravitons/gravitational waves. While they are bound together in a "holeum", QM 
stabilizes the microscopic blackholes by preventing them from swallowing one 
another or evaporating due to Hawking radiation. If they exist, their 
combination into macroholeums could readily explain galactic dark matter halos, 
dark energy, gamma ray bursts, ultra-high-energy cosmic rays, and the internal 
structure of full-sized black holes.
