Hi, cosmic mystery buffs. For some time, I have been advocating that the universal matter/antimatter problem can be explained by third family Bose Einstein condensation (BEC). The proposed scenario is: that Big Bang nucleogenesis did not result from a quark/gluon plasma; that there are at least four families of matter; that just after the cooling plasma of higher family virtual matter (mostly baryons and neutrinos) had condensed into third family particles (mostly top and bottom quark combinations of proton-like and neutron-like baryons, and tauons), they reached the weak boson energy range; that these third family fermions formed one or more universal BECs, because they were packed so closely that their deBroglie waves overlapped; that such BECs were in thermal equilibrium, because all collective members had the same energy at formation; that there is a progenitor W± boson which is neutrally charged, and before it decays into a W+ and W- boson, within the weak boson energy range, it is unable to mediate antimatter transformations (like the neutrally charged Z boson); that such BECs decayed within the weak boson energy range; that 8% of the product of such decay was first family baryons of matter only (no antimatter); and that antineutrinos carried off the opposite charge.

             My approach to ultra high energy BECs is the analogy: if first family bosons of actual matter can be induced to remain, as a BEC, at near absolute zero, because that is a thermally equal FLOOR; then a third family BEC of virtual matter might be (briefly) coerced into passing through the identical (high) energy level that was present at its creation, because such a creation event is a thermally equal CEILING, through which all such bosons had to pass, at the same time, as the ambient background cooled. Although I couldn’t figure out how entanglement could arise at the 355.5 GeV energy level of a third family proton-like baryon (one 4.5 GeV bottom and two 175.5 GeV top quarks), I was encouraged by the ongoing thermal increase of newly created BECs. Then came my diamond Xmas present, on page 14 of the 12/10/11 issue of New Scientist. Enter Ka Chung Lee and Michael Sprague, of Oxford University, who came up with the bright idea of measuring an entangled state, at extremely short intervals, so that random perturbations did not have enough time to destroy its coherence. For tens of millions of carbon atoms, in two separated diamonds, at room temperature,  each of those intervals was 10-13 seconds (the half-life of a top quark is 10-25 seconds).

I wrote the book, called “The Case of the Missing Siblings”, which is about cosmology and particle physics, and explores the nature of dark matter/energy, and the reasons why there are three families of matter.
