There has been a few thoughts bouncing around my little brain lately. One of them is the fact that the expansion of the universe being caused by dark energy. This expansion is actually accelerating. There are groups of galaxies that are able to float along together, galaxies of stars themselves aren't being ripped apart by this dark energy that is causing space to expand and solar systems aren't being affected...for now.

Many years in the future this could prove to be a different story if this acceleration continues. Eventually dark energy could begin to rip apart solar systems then stars and even planets, then molecules and then even overpower the strong nuclear force that holds together quarks.

But what happens when you try to rip quarks apart? Color confinement seems to suggest that you would create a shower of new matter. This would seem to me to create conditions that mimic the early universe. Including Quark/Gluon plasma and initial rapid inflation. The expansion could still be going at lightspeed or more. But once you create enough matter, it's gravity would kick in and slow the universe back down to a reasonable rate. Then you would wind up with a tug of war between expansion and gravity, just like we have.

Imagine a time when the universe is expanding faster then the speed of light, as the cosmological horizon contracts, gravity would weaken as matter moves out of the universe. The speed of expansion would increase and increase in a feedback loop. At some point a random atom would be torn apart causing a cascade of new matter (via color confinement) this new matter would be carried for a time (inflation) this would have the effect of dumping or sinking all that expansion energy into the production of new matter in this small part of space until gravity balanced the rate of expansion slowing the process. Everything outside this space would have been moving much faster then the speed of light(because of expansion) there by cutting it off forever from the new universe.

Perhaps this is how the universe works, sort of like a bouncing ball.

Thoughts?

I think this may be happening during our lifetimes. I also think in 2017 or 2018 we lost 2 hours in time. I am not as intelligent as your are...but yes time has changed.
