from what i understand they pop into and out of existence because + 1 - 1 = 0 and because quantum mechanics... and thats the same reason we have matter in the first place, right? because we had anti matter and matter (from virtual particles, right?) in the beginning of the observable universe... are these the same processes? am i completely misunderstanding what a virtual particle is? im wondering... if more matter was created then anti-matter in the beginning then why arent virtual particles creating more matter than anti matter right now?
