      Technically I think the answer is that matter is made of everything, and everything is made of matter, since all that we know is matter. If you were to boil matter down further you would get to atoms, which are comprised of protons, electrons and neutrons. It i possible to go even further than that down to quarks which are called “fundamental particles”

      Dark matter, if it exists, is simply matter we can’t see with the naked eye.
