not sure if this is the right forum.......but just a highly amateur simplistic question for space spooks out there....
As I understand it, the universe is expanding faster and faster. This is put down to dark matter/energy, which is just a name "we" give to whatever
is causing this effect - we don't know what it is, and have never actually seen or measured any dark matter or energy. All we know is that the
gravity of the universe should be slowing down the expansion, and it ain't happening.
OK - so how about this - if the universe is a bubble, and there are other "bubble universes" outside our one, then might the effect be caused by
gravitation from matter in those other bubble universes?
At an extreme, if there were an infinite number of bubble universes there would be an infinite amount of gravity pulling from outside our own
Since there is clearly not an infinite amount of such extra-universe gravity/dark matter/energy, might the force levels involved that we ascribe to
dark mattter/energy be something we can use to measure how much matter such bubble universes might contain??
