I know that expansion of space operates farther away from our Local Group of galaxies. But the reason for not considering expansion in our galactic neighborhood is: A. The space expands everywhere, the expansion is just too small close to us so we don't need to talk about it. or B. The space really doesn't expand AT ALL in our local group. Matter, local galaxies are bound together and as matter influences space, the texture of space is held together by gravitation and space doesn't expand AT ALL in our Local Group. Is my question silly? Is it just semantics? Curious to hear your answers. Thanks, Virgil.
