Greetings everyone! I used to be a huge big bang theory fan, but these days it strikes me as the most eloquent example of scientific conformism. I can fully understand that the only real alternative to it can be nothing else but a Big Nescio Theory, though ignorance can be very creative when one is not afraid to face it straight instead of ridiculing oneself by summoning dark masses, dark energies and other dark forces. From my point of view the only way to save BBT is to assume that the outward acceleration being observed today does not imply expanding but collapsing, exactly what one would expect if everything ran into a big black hole, just like trash pulled by a 3-sphere vacuum cleaner in a 4-dimentional space: they are all heading to the same final destination, but the more they are closing to it the faster are moving - so they seem to run away from one another. In this case gravity alone could be sufficient enough to explain the seemingly outward acceleration of the universe whithout any need for Darth Vader magic powers; but since there’s no visible boundaries in our universe and no absolute reference point discriminating inwards from outwards, one could easily take the one for the other. This might also account for the otherwise mysterious blackness of the night sky – the ultimate black hole at the actual center of our finite, closed-loop, self-contained universe.
