The existence of the universe is an enigma because the energy at genesis should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter, which should have subsequently annihilated. What happened in the baryogenesis process to cause matter to predominate in the cosmos? A candidate conceptual solution is presented based on the cordus conjecture, and featuring the antineutrino in a prominent role. A detailed model is produced for the production of an electron-antielectron pair from photons. The novel contribution is showing how the discrete field structures of the photon dynamically transform into those of the two massy particules. A new production process is detailed whereby an energetic antielectron is remanufactured into a proton and two antineutrinos. The production process could equally have converted electrons to antiprotons, and a tentative explanation is given for why this might not have happened. Therefore it is suggested that the apparent asymmetry of baryogenesis is because the antimatter is hiding in plain sight, having been remanufactured into the matter baryons themselves. In this model four photons are transformed into an electron and proton, i.e. a hydrogen atom, and two antineutrinos. The antimatter field structure of the antielectron is carried away by the antineutrinos as a waste stream. This paper therefore provides an alternative conceptual solution to the baryogenesis asymmetry in the universe, and it also explains the leptogenesis asymmetry. As a corollary, the conditions are identified under which the proton may decay.
