Re: Matter/antimatter vs "regular"/"dark" matter

Normal matter isn't just held together by gravity but also by electromagnetism.

But when a star forms it is gravity that pulls it all together and the other forces that, via solar ignition/fusion, keep it from collapsing completely - so what keeps dark matter diffuse ?
