Two Issues: 1 Accellerating Universe Expansion (Inflation) As I understand this this arises out of the observation that the further away object are, the faster they are moving, (relative to us). This I assume is the origin of the search for “Dark Matter” & “Dark Energy” Surely if a star 1,000 light years away is travelling faster than a star 100 LY away this means that 1000 years ago it was travelling faster than it was 100 years ago – ergo it is SLOWING DOWN. Does this not remove some of the problems we are trying to solve? 1 Big Bang Issues. Many of the currently available books written as explanations of the BB and posing the questions of the issues of inflation mention what happens in the “first Micro second” or the “first 4 minutes”. If we assume that just before the BB there was no mass and nearly infinite energy then from E= 1/2MV² then V must beclose to the limiting velocity C. Now Uncle Albert told us that time slows down as relative velocity increases so on this model one second could be the sam as 100 present day years. As all of our calculations are based on our experience of present “earth” seconds does this not go a long way to explaining the mysteries of the first few seconds?
