Everything within a given "realm" in which a certain observable, verifiable, and duplicable set of penomena (laws) exists in such a way that the interaction between all of these pehnomena do not lead to the destruction of everything within that realm. From time to time, as has been observed repeatedly, an "antiparticle" will meet with a particle, and they will annhilate (spelling?) each other. However, where did that antiparticle come from?

Another universe...one that contains a different set of laws and phenomena that we cannot immediately observe...laws that are perhaps completely contrary to the laws of THIS realm. That other realm would be, in essence, another universe. For all we know, the inside of a black hole could be a completely different universe, with laws we can't even begin to imagine, because we cannot readily observe what happens inside a black hole. We can only guestimate based on mathematics built on laws we DO understand, but in another universe, those mathematics won't get us very far. ;)
