Only moving at faster than C relative to us but not at C relative to the center of the universe..But there are regions (closer ones) we can observe that are already moving away from us > C.
GR demonstrates that any one point can be treated as not moving. So from many outer regions were moving faster than C.
It's held that Dark Energy is gaining the upper hand over gravity as the density of the universe decreases with time. So, it will continue to accelerate and not stop.
As soon as it does matter converts to radiation and it can't go faster than C so conversion happens inward.
Got to be some interesting math for that
Same problem with dark energy creating something for nothing.
If it's part of reality then it will eventually becomes infinite energy.
Gets more each day and more than that day the next day.
Energy has mass so no matter what it is converted into it becomes infinite in a finite area.
Dark energy is an interesting idea but makes the original big bang problematic to have in the first place.
Difficult to imagine how we got mass to create a universe size black hole with
dark energy in the mix at the start.
Dark energy multiplying E and pushing the universe apart.
Or external universes with greater G influence than the mass of our universe puling our universe apart.
What math and E law is easier?
I think the answer is cyclic for 1 reason, we are here to see it and for it to be in needs a beginning..Certainly agree with Helio on this. Playing around with a recycling universe was just for fun. What really happens is anybody's guess.
That long, slow ever-expanding heat death is too ugly to inspire, and harder still to accept.
But, as they say, entropy rules!
Just got to fill in the missing details and find out if nature is weird or mankinds thinking is
Check math, might have errorsNo, I just checked!
Anyway, Definitely cyclical.
IMO probably cyclic for a number or reasons.
If not the universe sure is a weird place starting from nothing and just happening once.
Who says nature has to make mankind happy, it just needs to do whatever it does and follow the most simple self induced rules doing it.
