Particular - Pull particles to centre?

I'm a big nub with Trapcode, and still an amateur at AE, so this is probably really simple.

I'm trying to create an effect where lots of particles are being dragged from the edges to the centre of the screen, kinda like the centre is a black hole?

How would I achieve this effect?

Like the effect in this video at 17 seconds >

Honestly, the best way to do this is to time reverse the normal default particular layer. You can either do that or let it run for a few seconds then key frame the physics time in Particular from 1 to -1 to make it play backwards.

I was just thinking that! What setting do I change to make the particles spread out past the screen?

either adjust the velocity of the particles or increase the life of the particles
