I don't know if I would agree that the mainstream is, in fact, made up of individual stars. That may be too optimistic.

If I were to ascribe any celestial quality to the mainstream, I think it would be that of cosmic dust. Certainly, there is potential to have some gravitational energy pull together clumps of this dust to create stars, but without such gravitational pull, it is still just dust.

Perhaps the best thing we can do is create the gravity and hope that the dust gathers. Otherwise, it will be waiting under the sofa for us when we move again.


Hellyweed, I completely agree with you. Cosmic dust describes what I saw in my head as I was writing. Thanks for your comment and translating what I was thinking into better words.
