Light is not what holds the universe together.

According to inflation theory, the Big Bang produced a critical mass of matter and anti-matter together. Then according to GUT theory 236 particle pairs all produced light. So the mass omega due to matter became 1/237, and the mass omega due to light became 236/237. So at least at that early time, light did hold the universe together according to big bang theory.

The vast majority of the universe, if you haven't noticed at night, is DARK!

I also find this statement interesting. Actually the universe is full of light in the form of electromagnetic waves which are invisible unless they go directly into your eye and collapse into a photon there. So darkness does not indicate a lack of light
