    okay that's great. but how can u keep it from reacting with the the electric field (since it is matter)?

    No, the particles of electric field , photons do not have the specific "charge" that diffrentiates matter from antimatter. It is neither.

    hmm. But I learnt that even if it doesn't have any charge and it comes in contact with antimatter,

    No, u don't understand the words here - It meant "generalized charge" there are more chrges than just electric. To annihilate some of them must be opposite
