Vincents very intelligent father answers your questions?
what keeps the universe together?"
Zat is a very deep qvestion, physically it is a matter of ze forces of Gravity vhich does the job well, but as you might know ze universe is expanding so it could be to something a lot more complex.
I Zeorise a particle that isn't affected by gravity as we know it but acts as a bungee cord for all matter. I call it ze Aurica particle (after my lovely vife, zough she doesn't believe in science because of her gypsy upbringing... but zats another story...) basically vat it does is focus the connections between large bodies like stars and ze further zey get apart ze more ze Aurica partical enacts a stronger force and the connection between zem is stronger. Like a good marriage ze more time has passed the stronger the connection... hmph And zey say i'm not romantic...
