Mr Nathan Johnson
Would you agree with me at the thought that the energy that exists in the universe probably didn't just appear out of nowhere and there's some reaction that sparked what exists today? If so..we have this thought that with all the matter in the universe there's an even amount of antimatter that was created at the same time. Is their a chance this could be backwards? Like say instead of a instantaneous spark of existence of every thing there is today what if this was a more gradual build up? For instance this dark energy that we had no idea existed that apparently makes up most of our universe today could possibly this have existed before actual matter? just say what ever gave birth to our universe what ever energy source it was made all the dark matter that existed but not complex energy like light, X Ray stuff like that, now Einstein talked about space having structure and with this energy created movement and with movement inevitably comes friction heat (complex energy). With this movement outwards in space it just starts generating more and more of this new energy which eventually builds up into bigger and more complex stuff like atoms and eventually cells (life). If to be true ruling out no more of this dark energy is being added to this universe we would look at eventually all this dark energy would slow down it's expansion and eventually rest in a stable universe with evenly distributed matter across the cosmos. Now say more of this energy is being added which would most likely be the case you would have a never ending always growing universe beautiful sustaining itself still with evenly distributed matter across the cosmos doesn't matter how big it gets. This would tell you steps on how things where made how it all started but one cool thing might be if it started so small it starts evolving into more complex thing from energy to atoms to cells to mabye whatever's next in this incredible anythings possible universe. This is just one of my thoughts any replies back if it's got any right direction or not would help thanks : )

Personally, I don't think there's dark matter, just a lack of localized dimensionality and gravity which is a reduction of the function of 'energy'.

I run with the idea that 'energy' and subsequently 'matter' (for matter is is just energy brought to a slow vibration, which is probably gravity's fault) are all part of a function of concept of dimension.

Comments from Mr Nathan Johnson:
What I was talking about when energy created movement it's just like you said (vibration) and if things vibrated really close together could that create heat? If you don't believe in dark matter would you believe in a source of energy that eventually created the energy there is today?

"If you don't believe in dark matter would you believe in a source of energy that eventually created the energy there is today?"

Well isn't that the question of all questions:

a) only God knows
b) its possible that the dimension of everything created between one another and the universe itself is the sum of the energy required to make it and create the universe, for the 'extra energy required to create elements' is greater than the energy just to create space, and thereby is enough or more when 'contracted' to the source or various sources of expansion.
c) there are other 'universes' which energy moves back and forth between depending on their various states.

(computational power required to know which one is possibly outside out means currently)

Most of what is in this reply is my personal view, often supported by scientific facts. Here we must remember the words of Newton, Physics beware of metaphysics. Today Physics has reached that state where for any further progress we have to bring in metaphysics or so it seems to me. What I feel is that to get a clear picture we need both; theology must complement cosmology and vise versa. Anyway I shall try to be as rational as possible in this answer.

1. In the beginning energy did not come out of somewhere or nowhere. It was always there. According to some cosmologists, the vacuum state that existed before the Big Bang was seething with energy. Bubbles of matter appeared in this ocean of energy from time to time, always accompanied by anti matter. But they always annihilated each other within a tiny fraction of a second. Somehow, this annihilation did not take place once. That was the beginning of our cosmos.
2. The energy of this vacuum state was limitless (Infinite?) and this energy does not have to be generated more and more as you visualized. There is enough and more; there was this from the beginning.
3. In the beginning all the matter was in the fluid state of quark-gluon plasma. Soon this evolved into hadrons protons, neutrons and the like and later into hydrogen and helium. In the stars these are slowly changing into heavier elements. But new matter new atoms are not being created.
4.. Creation of life cells is much more complex than the normal process of chemical evolution. Those who understand the complexity of a DNA molecule and what it can do will agree that just a cell just did not cannot appear by chance. I firmly believe that the appearance of life, of the complex cell, was a separate act of creation.
5. Finally there is no chance of the expansion of the universe becoming steady and becoming a static universe. Change is in the nature of things. If the present expansion ceases the chances are that the universe will start shrinking and in another 25 billion years or so there may be a big crunch. But that is irrelevant as the universe has relevance only as long as there are intelligent beings humans to observe. Human life or life on earth in general shall cease to be in a short time (on the cosmic time scale). What happens after that has no place in our science.

Comments from Mr Nathan Johnson:
Yea so it was this dark energy (vacuum) that created matter and other energy that we can see and observe. This vacuum basically is a type of energy and creates matter with it's presence.
