The observations show that dark matter in the Universe is distributed as a network of gigantic dense (white) and empty (dark) regions
This is the first direct glimpse at dark matter on large scales showing the cosmic web in all directions.
The densest regions of the dark matter cosmic web host massive clusters of galaxies.
It turns out that roughly 70% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 25%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the Universe.

Do you think perhaps that somehow the visible cosmos of galaxies is somehow fueled by dark energy or matter thus causing the galaxies to speed up as you state???
Two proposed forms for dark energy are the cosmological constant, a constant energy density filling space homogeneously, and scalar fields such as quintessence or moduli, dynamic quantities whose energy density can vary in time and space
