Wouldn't the explanation that fits fundamental laws (e.g. Conservation of E) while making the least asumptions be an ongoing bang-crunch-bang...scenario? Why couldn't expansion be eventually reigned in by forces, dark matter and the like - ultimately leading to contraction?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why shouldn't matter/energy behave similarly on a Universal scale as it does on an atomic or more 'local' level? Couldn't 'everything' be viewed in the context of a kind of infinite Elastic Collision?

Thanks for your help!
