This work re-iterates our earlier finding that the log-mass density of the visible (shining) and the dark (non-shining) matter in spiral galaxies and at least in one galaxy cluster respects amazing linear correlation, i.e. log rho_v = k log rho_d. What's most interesting is that the proportionality constant is the same both in the case of spiral galaxies and the galaxy cluster, k=4. Our earlier interpretation of this fact, re-iterated here, is in terms of thermodynamic Boltzman law, which leads to two conclusions: a) dark and visible components are in near-thermal equilibrium, which means that dark matter in fact is quite strongly interacting, and b) mass of dark matter particles is about 1/4 that of the proton mass, or 250MeV.
