If anti-matter is just the exact opposite of matter, then what makes our matter special and anti-matter not. Who`s to say which is actualy "anti" when they both are something, just two somethings that anhialate eachother. My point here is this: they are both matter (in other words something that exists), just that they are opposites of eachother. Who`s to say that this anti-space you speak of isn`t the one that expands into "regular" space. You may argue that our space appears to expand and therefore has to be the one that expands into anti-space, but that means the other one has to contract (so says logic). But if "anti" space contracts then it should appear to expand, because if you count backwards in negative numbers you actualy have more than what you started with in the first place. Therefore an "anti-space alien" would see his universe expand also, and he would call his universe "space" and ours "anti-space". Even though I don`t believe this argument applies to our universe, it was a point I wanted to make just to see your reply.....
