I have a theory of why the universe is expanding.The topic was moved because it was not a question about accepted science, but rather, well, a new idea.
That said, welcome to TNS!
the ever expanding and accelerating depths of its age.It is not ever-accelerating. The onset of acceleration is relatively recent and the majority of the history of the universe has had sufficient energy density for a deceleration of the expansion rate. A linear expansion rate of 1/T would be no acceleration or deceleration at all, but the curve is not linear. Fairly close, but no cigar.
As we know all planetary bodies are rotating all of the moons are rotating even the sun is turning before us. This phenomenon is taking place throughout our galaxy even the galaxy its self is rotating. This obvious motion can be seen throughout the entire universe by the spiral arms of our neighboring galaxies that are saying look at me spin.This is expected. It would be an incredible coincidence for any object to happen to have exactly zero angular momentum, so pretty much everything rotates. I cannot think of an exception. But at the larger scales, the net angular momentum per mass goes down since all the objects rotate in random directions and tend to cancel each other out if added together. Superclusters have barely noticeable angular momentum to the point that I would not be able to say which way any of them turns.
So I have visualized this rotating motion not only as it is within the boundary of the universe but I propose that the universe its self is rotatingFinite angular speed of an infinitely spread out mass would result in faster than light motion of most of that mass. This cannot be, therefore the only way the universe could be rotating is if it was a finite thing, which contradicts the cosmological principle upon which most models rest.
generating the necessary centrifugal force that may be expanding our horizon.That would be expansion expressed as motion through space, which has different obervables than does the metric expansion of space. This would thus contradict empirical observations. There would be an obvious center of the universe if it rotated about a preferred location. The expansion for one would all be in two dimensions and not at all on the axis of rotation. This is not what we see.
