I know currently electromagnetism is not considered a huge influence in how the galaxy much less how the universe evolves tho there are some fringe groups who do, do these vast filliments provide an "avenue" for large scale electromagnetic fields to then introduce enough influence to change our perspective? Do these structures exist because of electromagnetism or just through gravity and motion? What force would make them cohere? I suspect I'm looking at this all wrong but then I've never gone past physics 101 in college. :P

Yeah those guys. Which reminds me, the filliments can't be plasma can they? The filliments are too cold and thin?

I mean they could be if something has just blown all the electrons away from those areas, but that would be odd. We associate plasma with super high temps cause that's what it usually takes to make electrons bugger off en masse.
