      If strange matter is truly the most stable state of matter in the universe wouldn't that mean that it is also the core of a black hole? Which could mean that Hawking radiation is either they decay of strange matter, or the result of matter being turned into strange matter? I guess technically if strange matter has the capability to infect other matter then it would continually infect more and more matter and grow until it envelops the universe, so I guess that wouldn't work.

            The thing is, if the strange matter cores are touching the neutron stars, how the the neutrons stars not decaying? Also, is strange matter is stable, then why do strange quarks decay?
