I wonder how physicists came up with the idea of the space filling in between galaxies? Where is this dark energy coming from? Is it like a cloud of ever swirling of smoke?

Sorry Jiggerj...as hard as I try to focus all my mental facilities on your question in the hopes
of supplying you with a succinct and elegant answer some sarcastic guy from New Jersey
pops up in my head and says...
"Hey...why don'tcha ask your sister about the hole I left after I gave her a big bang last night, eh?"
THIS REPLY IS OFF TOPIC AND SUBJECT TO CENSOR
*guy from Jersey* "Oh yea...I got yer censor right here..."
.....Oh Man, I can't seem to shut that guy up now....
But the Universe isn't "pulling from the center," the Universe is pulling in all directions at once. Every part of it is pulling away from every other part of it. The Big Rip is a theory about the eventual fate of the Universe where as space expands faster and faster, the expansion starts to overcome even the forces holding matter together and even the atoms and sub-atomic particles that make up the matter in the Universe can no longer overcome it and are ripped apart, not from one point at the center, but every point in the Universe this pulls apart from every other point.

It wasn´t "and explosion" or even "an expansion" from "nothing". It was a kind of RIP, from a multidimensional Universe, wich was already "everywhere" (and it still is, if M-theory gets to be confirmed some day) and that´s why we doesn´t need a "BANG" or a "INFLATION". And by RIP we mean a multidimensional RIP.
BTW, all the post WASN´T an answer in strict sense. It was more of an approximation, and it raises even more questions, wich we can´t answer . Quite a paradox..
hint: we ARE the hole...

say there are 10 light years of space between 2 galaxies....
how does the distance of 10 light years increase,,, without the galaxies moving?

I actually wonder if the Big Bang ever STOPPED. As in, what if matter or energy is still being produced? In my belief, the Big Bang was actually just preexisting energy from some other time, and it became conscious and started forming itself into the universe we see today. Everything is conscious on one level or another, because it all comes from the same energy.
We just aren't smart enough to figure it out yet. Ah, such blasphemy!
