so im watching this show on discovery and were talking about anti matter vs matter. cool, i understand that they cancel each other out. but if in the beginning energy turn into matter (e=mc2) what creates anti matter? anti energy? secondly, as per the law of conservation of energy, energy cannot be destroyed only transfered thusly matter cant be destroyed only transfered, what happens to the anti matter-matter battle? what comes from it? something has to or does it REALLY just cancel out? thanks

Anti-matter has positive mass just like matter does so the relationship between mass and energy is the same regardless of whether the mass is matter or anti-matter.

The law of conservation of energy and the law of conservation of mass are one and the same. The total of energy and mass in a system must be conserved but mass can be converted to energy and vice-verse. E=MC^2 is the conversion ratio. When matter and anti-matter annihilate the result is energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
