You know The way they explain expansion - they blow up the balloon, its wrong.
As the local areas pool they compress the space they occupied into a smaller and smaller area Stretching space between them.
The thing is, Its not expanding The space between the local groups of Pooling is being stretched Nothing more.The average rate of pooling taken from thousands of groups of Galaxy clusters and the history of change in that should Relate to the universes expansion rate over time.
If we were on a space ship, traveling near the speed of light, and we looked out the window, the universe would appear contracted in space and time. This is implied by special relativity.
The expansion would be a reference illusion,
If we assume universal space-time was expanding in all directions, don't we on earth get a two for one reference affect? If we assume the universe is expanding and thereby space-time is expanding, won't the earth reference get a secondary affect similar to the space ship slowing, since the space-time reference around the earth is expanding, which has a mathematical equivalence to a slowing space ship reference? If we do factor in two for one, wouldn't the universe be smaller since part of size will be based on the unique earth reference illusion affect; immersion in expanding space-time window?
On the other hand, since an expansion means the universe is getting bigger, our earth space-ship should going faster and faster to reflect the universal accelerated expansion. If a space ship was to do that ,the universe would appear to contract from its window called earth. This would add a third affect to the POV of the earth, since the earth is also immersed in an expanding space-time reference, as the universe expands. Is there a two for one or three for one affect?
However, if we use the balloon analogy for the expansion, but instead of coloring in weightless dots, that expand in all directions with the ballon, we glue on beads with mass to simulate galaxies. The expansion has to move these massive dots in all direction; we have inertia and gravity to deal with. The energy requirement, in this scenario is a lot larger that weightless dots. This will mean the earth reference affect will have potential, that is not virtual, based on weightless ink dots expanding. Weightless dots can be ignored, so the two or three for one can be ignored. But the massive bead balloon model needs extra energy, so the two and three for one cannot be ignored based on energy conservation.
