It's because we're special.
 
2022-03-15 10:44:40 AM  
Because if it ws all about the anti-matter, we'd be asking why not?

Olive oil is particularly good at this which is why most Italian kitchens are well stocked with it.

At least it's not made of unclematter, that guy is a jerk.

The other question in my mind: If only one out of every million matter particles survived, where did the 10**6th worth of energy go?  That's enough to energy light the whole universe up like a Kentucky Senator.

Because if the universe was mostly anti matter we would just call it matter and wonder the exact same thing.

What if the universe is actually made of antimatter, and the stuff they make in those giant loops is real matter. And what's it matter to you, it's not like you're any more real than antimatter, man.

This.  If it were the opposite, we'd refer to antimatter as "matter" and matter as "antimatter."

Because you touch yourself at night.

If this universe was all anti-matter, then we'd simply be calling it just "matter", and we'd be calling what we currently know as mater by the name "anti-matter".

So who's to say it isn't already?

You're thinking of antipasta.

Antipasto usually isn't dangerous.

Antimatter destroys matter. There is much more matter to feed the antimatter apex predators. Matter has many babies because some of them won't survive. When antimatter overbreeds then it starts to deplete the matter nearby until they starve their numbers down.

Would we actually know if we were in the universe made of antimatter and not the universe made of matter though?

Is it objective or subjective?

Oh and its because one side of the equation won by the smallest possible factor. Then that small factor got multiplied infinitely to make what we see now.

It's the same deal with socks. Find where those go, and bam, there's your antimatter.

Because the black hole that spawned our universe was mainly made from matter

Because nothing matters.

Antimatter was removed in a balance patch because the devs got tired of all the explosions. But, being lazy, they left the code for it in, and that's why we can still make small amounts in particle accelerators.

Because in THIS universe we accentuate the "positve", and eliminate the "negative".
