General considerations require that, if imaginary-mass matter can exist, then it will be present and coupled to the thermal gravitons in the early stages of the expansion of the Universe. This imaginary-mass component disappears abruptly as the expansion proceeds, a circumstance of great importance for the dynamics of the Universe. Estimates are given which indicate that this event would have occurred before the end of the hadron era.
