If our universe exists as a byproduct of an excess of positive particles that had no counterparts during the big bang, could there be a negative to our positive universe on the opposite "side" of the origin, wherever that may be because space we know is relative to our universe. Maybe it looks like this diagram created in house by our expert diagram creation department. The two halves are the same image. Maybe the outline of the circle can represent the origin of the universe. The arrows mean continue to infinity.

Hmm, are you Common-sense-seeker with a different name? Your style and content are very similar.

No, I am not common-sense-seeker by a different name. My alter ego fights crime at night and wears his underpants on the outside.

Aha, you are John Major and I claim my 5.

If you are saying that the universe maybe positively charged and that, for the sake of aesthetic balance (?), there may be another universe which is negatively charged, I suppose this may be possible. The trouble is that there are an infinite number of possibilities and, for the most part, it is best to aim at the simplest one that explains all the facts as we know them. It is normally assumed that the universe as we know it is charge neutral. Why would you suggest otherwise unless to do so explains some feature not explained by other theories? Is there a reason for suggesting a net charge in the universe?

When we know so little that can be verified by experiment the possibilities are endless, but unless a theory results in some identifiable and unique outcome that we can observe to be true it will just be speculation.

when i say the universe is positive i mean it in the sense that our universe is made up of matter that can be cancelled out by anti-matter. In the beginning there was more anti-matter than matter, but you also get cases in the universe where nothing becomes a particle and an anti-particle and they soon collide going back to nothing, so i don't like that there's no opposites for what we call matter. So i guess you could say it's for an aesthetically pleasing universe that i brought this up.

Symmetry is a kind of religion with some people.

i guess, but the same can be said about science.

Yes, but one can be obsessed with the notion that there just HAS to be symmetry even if there is no evidence. That could be an uninformed choice, arrived at for reasons of aesthetics or culture (i.e. a quasi religion)
Real Science is not a religion at all.  There are individuals who want to treat it that way, though.
Science thrives on disproof, questioning and reductionism; a different approach, entirely, for that of Religion.
