The positive hyperon production asymmetries that have been measured at LHC are real demonstrations of
string junction role in the baryon charge transfer at baryon production in HE proton-proton interactions.
In order to invent the neutral heavy particle with zero baryon charge as a candidate for Dark Matter, it is
necessary to turn back to the times of dual topological unitarization of hadroproduction physics, where
the pomeron exchanges play a leading role with the growing energies. The topological presentation of
pomeron exchange at the HE proton-proton collision is a cylinder that is covered with a quark-gluon net.
Taking into account the fact that the junction of three gluons (SJ) has a positive baryon number, as well as
the antijunction (antiSJ) is of negative baryon charge, the neutral self-connected baryonium configuration
with zero baryon charge is a torus that is covered by a discrete number of hexagons with 3 string junction
and 3 antijunction vertices each. The possibilities of observing such baryonium tori are discussed in this
paper for three cases: collision at p-p colliders, collision of cosmic particles with atmosphere, and inside
the relativistic jet at the Active Galaxy Nuclei as well.
