        If strange matter can infect other stars, how our universe could be born? Should we receive the signal of energy released when a star is being infected if this theory is true?

                      isnt that disobeying one of the laws which says "infomation cannot be destoryed"
                      you said strange matter converts matter into strange matter, similar to blackholes in another video?
