There is some thought that dark matter is just a math error that arises because both Newton's gravity theory and einsteinn's general relativity have an inherent assumption of spherical symmetry in them. Evidence of this is that sperical galaxies have no dark matter.

It the correct non-symmetric gravity theory is used, then spiral galaxies do not have dark matter either. Here are the pertinent references:

I developed my theory before these theories came to light. Nevertheless the whole idea of a superfluid of very nearly massless particles that then have wave functions larger than our planet, and therefore are a superfluid, is still very appealing to me. Here is an early reference to my work, actually a review paper:
