I The intelligent particle

  1. Aug 7, 2016 #1
    Any anti-matter particle in Nature seeks out and gets annihilated by the first matter particle it encounters. (always the first).

    Is there a kind of superluminal communication between matter anti-matter particle pairs ?

    Is this consistent with the laws of physics ?:))

    No. I am not sure what would make you believe this.

    I don't think that a positron can be annihilated by a proton.

    I am not sure what would make you believe this either.

    That is not correct. There's no "seeking out" going on. They're both moving through space on whatever paths they're on and being pushed around by whatever forces happen to be acting on them. If they get close enough they'll interact, just like any other particles moving about.
