What if acceleration is really an attraction to something surrounding us? What would happen if a black hole gained size over the history of the universe until it comprised a huge percentage of the universe? And what if that universe was curved so that as the black hole expanded, it began to approach itself on the other side, like drawing larger and larger circles on a ball? What would the observer in the remaining part of the universe see as this black hole closed up? Wouldn't it look like accelerating expansion as the galaxies are pulled toward the monster black hole all around them with greater and greater force? Does this model have any correlation with anything in the real world or am I a crackpot? Has anyone looked at this? Basically the idea is: What if expansion is really being attracted to something which surrounds us instead of being propelled outward from within?
