Whiteholes

What possibility exists that a type of "whitehole" with opposite characteristics to blackholes, could play a part in cosmics evolution?

well, black holes are infiniteely small because of the intens gravity in them (the singularity that is) so a "white hole" would be infinetly huge, and posses an infintely small amount of mass...soooo  i dont think itd effect the universe much, but who knows they could be everywhere and all around us :-P

I don't think that's quite right.
White holes are summised to be regions of space that spew out material. I'm not sure about size but I don't think they can be infinitely huge or we'd be in 1.

Maybe we are!  The big bang fits that description of a white hole mostly and since all matter, energy, time and space flowed out of it, the universe could be described as still being in it.  :)
