maybe somebody out there has some thoughts on this... is it maybe possible that some mechanism is in place such that the fabric of spacetime, reduced to 'cells' of dimensions in keeping with Planck length, is itself expanding? such an effect would lead to each 'cell' being capable of being either occupied or not occupied by a quantum particle while at the same time the cells themselves expand. This would lead to ever greater distances between objects on cosmic scales, but locally adjacent cells stay adjacent. I'm aware that the scale of everything enlarging in unison would lead to the same observations from any single point, but not if what was important for measurements was the number of cells travelled by information (e.g light), not the distance through expanding cells. This is as far as I can reason through with this line of thinking in an attempt to maybe understand the nature of dark energy, leading to cosmic 'repulsion' and dark matter, an apparent excess of gravity. Could anybody lead me towards a better reasoning of this, or is it way of the mark of current possibilities for an explanation of these, and other (wave/particle duality) phenomena?
