Sorry for my bad English and mostly for my bad Physics. For me it doesn't make any sense regarding the expansion of the Universe as a distant process, a sort of time&space machine which 'degulfs' more room for the known things to occupy. My guess is the expansion is happening here now at a subatomic level and it swells matter, distancing the quarks from each other within the hadron, forcing gluons to attempt linking their more and more distant quarks (and having this confinement condition as a safety measure against proton disintegration). This could mean that the age of the Universe could be measured according to the distance between quarks. If space-time fabric has the structure of a net, its constant number of nodes get farther from each other and the ridges get longer, so the speed of light is a constant if measured by nodes but a variable if we measure the real distance it covers per time unit. Moreover, if a proton indicates the distance in time from the Big Bang by its size, maybe if one could shrink a proton to a previous size, it will necessarily transpose itself in that past moment when all the protons had this size. It's like the standard meter from Paris is getting longer each split-second. This also could lead to a critical moment when protons will break at an exponential rate and all the matter in the Universe will be shred by the tension of the space-time mesh. How am I wrong here? I guess I must be awfully wrong, given my poor knowledge (which is hardly past the high school level and some books for dummies).
