According to this Y! article, a new theory states that Dark matter works, in concert, with regular matter and is the building blocks of the universe. This new theory would also eliminate the "Big Crunch" (the theory that gravity would eventually kick in and cause the universe to collapse on itself). An interesting theory with some good analogies to explain the theory in detail.
