Gravity and Accelerating Universal Expansion by Peter Noble
This theory came to me in the bath, so it must be right right. It offers meanderings on gravity and universal expansion.
It’s pretty much accepted that time and space are indivisible and should be considered as single fabric called space-time. The faster you travel in space the slower you travel in time with the total never exceeding the speed of light C.
The universe is expanding. It would like to expand at the speed of light but that’s tricky because whilst it is easy for light and radiation to travel at C its not so easy to get things like pencil sharpeners and planets to whistle along so fast. The expanding wave front of the universe (we call it the present) is made uneven by the fact that matter just cannot keep up with energy. The effect that a concentration of matter has on the space-time that surrounds it is to act as drag on its expansion. That drag manifests as gravity
In the case of black holes the drag is so great that there is simply no possibility of anything within the event horizon of the black hole ever reconnecting with the expanding wave front of the universe.
Why is universal expansion accelerating? As time passes matter degrades to radiation of various forms. There are no circumstances where radiation degrades to become matter. It’s a one way trip with a huge exchange ratio E=MC2. A tiny amount of matter yields a whole lot of radiation. As the universe ages, the balance of matter and energy tips, always in favour of energy and energy travels at or around C. Thus the brake put on Universal expansion by matter is being eroded and the universe expands faster and faster eventual reaching C when all the matter is degraded to energy.
If there’s any gluten and dairy free biccies with that Nobel prize it would be nice.
