A hypothesis only by James Leckner Looking at space as a form of energy itself or as another way that energy is converted from one form to another. You would look at space as not the result of a large explosion (per say) but more like the conversion of one form of energy to another or even some form of energy outside of space undergoing some form of entropy or reaction creating more space or the "expansion" of space. The big bang could be described as the start of this conversion of energy, almost like a bubble forming inside this "outside" form of energy (for lack of a better term) as the result of its energy being converted into open space and that transformation of energy continues indefinitely. Dark energy could just simply be this conversion. Some form of energy outside open space being converted into open space. I wanted to place this idea somewhere where i can get some feedback, or a way to prove it wrong so I can stop thinking about it. I am no astronomer or physicist and don't have the type of education to really put this idea out there the way that I want so I wanted some ideas from more learned people than myself to either discount this or expand on it. Any comments or thoughts at all however are more than welcome.
