"Dark matter is like the somber foundations of a building. It's necessary, and yet, you really don't notice it in daily life... unless there is an "earthquake", which could be a metaphor for a big bang or gravitational collapse; out-of-sight, out-of-mind and over the horizons. Dark energy is like the atmosphere around a building. Necessary, yet far removed from interacting with the luminous beings inside."
