    Hello everyone. I just joined this forum and this is my first post..

    I am a physics enthusiast with no formal teaching/training. I have ready many books on the subject ranging from Quantum physics to Cosmology to Information science, etc. Anyway, I had some thoughts that I'm sure are thoroughly flawed, but was curious if you could help sort them out for me. Hopefully I can convey the idea properly, but unfortunately this might be long. Bare with me if you can. Don't be to hard on me, I'm a novice. Thanks in advance.

    The idea is based on the idea that as objects approach the speed of light, their relative mass increases, time from the objects perspective slows down, and distances become shorter or closer together.

    Well based on this I was thinking about the Big Bang and wondering if instead of all matter and energy, being compressed into a singularity, although at the time of the Big Bang I believe it was all just energy in the singularity, since no matter could stabilize. But anyway, what if all that energy was instead, traveling at the speed of light and each quanta of energy was everywhere in the universe at once? Meaning there was no singularity. I no this is kind of just another way of looking at a singularity. Instead of everything in one place, everything is every place.

    So that's the start, now I was thinking if M theory is correct, maybe our Membrane/Universe collided with another and caused particles or quanta to pick one place(kind of like adding a light sensor in the double slit experiment). Suddenly certain quanta, chose a place and threw off balance, causing variations in energy density throughout the universe. Now over time matter started to form as things clumped due to gravity and slowed down. I haven't figured this all out, but there are many points here, so keep reading

    Next matter would cluster more and more as it slowed down, and it would go from a soup into, clouds of gas and eventually compress enough to form stars. Now at no time has expansion of space been occurring. Only the warping and bending of space due to gravity caused by the clumping/clustering. However since the matter has been decelerating further and further from light speed, it's relative mass has been decreasing, time has been speeding up from it's perspective(not that it has one), and distances have been increasing.

    I'll start with the distances. If distances are increasing from the decelerating matter's perspective, than objects not being pulled towards it fast enough by gravity, will appear to be moving away at an accelerated rate and the unaffected light(since it has no rest mass and is not decelerating) appears to be stretched as it crosses this increasing distance in space... appearing as a red shift(no need for dark energy). Now in this scenario the earth for instance would be on a balanced downward spiral towards the sun, but as they are both decelerating the effects of this stop them from reaching each other, because the distance appears to be increasing at a similar rate.

    Now in the case of the galaxy, I think this can also take the place of dark matter. The center of the galaxy, thought to be a super massive black hole obviously has an enormous gravitational pull on it's spiral arms, however as I understand it, there isn't enough mass in the galaxy to keep the outer portions of those arms from tearing away and spinning off into space, but somehow they stay attached. Now if all particles with rest mass are decelerating and losing relative mass it follows that if the super massive blackhole at the center had a gravitational pull of X then as time went by and it decelerated more the pull would decrease let's say to x-1. Since Gravities speed, like all things is limited to the speed of light, the outer portions of the galaxy's arms might have a pull on them of X at the same time that the inner portions are receiving a pull of X-1, due to the deceleration. This would make it appear as though their was some mysterious extra mass/matter somewhere. But it doesn't seem like there needs to be.

    This delay in gravity would be testable, if we had accurate enough tools. On a much much smaller scale, would should see what appears to be missing mass in our own solar system, due to the much smaller, but still evident delay in the time it would take gravitational changes to reach Mercury as opposed to Neptune. Although I believe the missing mass would be pretty minor and difficult to measure accurately.

    The deceleration could also account for our perception of time, since it is a source of constant change, which is all we really need to have for a concept like time to persist.

    Possibly even Gravity could be accounted for, although this is not fully fleshed out either. It has been shown that the effects of gravity and the effects acceleration have on something are indistinguishable. So if I am in a constant rate of acceleration in a space ship and am at a proper rate to match the feel of Earth's gravity. The effects of the acceleration forces on me would be indistinguishable from the gravitational forces effects on me on Earth. Could this possibly work with the deceleration I have been describing? Maybe this is what gives objects their Gravitational effects.

    Oh and I'm not really sure where this deceleration is occurring, possibly through a higher dimension.

    There is more that I've thought of all based on this idea, but I think that is more than enough to start with. I know I have no math or fomulas, just thoughts, but as I said, I have no formal education in this field. I just love it.

    I welcome your comments/criticisms, and am curious if any of this sounds good/plausible or if it is just horribly flawed.
