Could the source of Dark Energy be light?
As light travels through space, it loses energy.
Could this energy from photons be transmitted and stored in the fabric of space, causing it to expand, deep in intergalactic space, where gravitational fields are minimal?
Dark energy seems to have increased as the amount of light generated by the universe has increased, and it seems that it will decrease when the light generated by the universe decreases, allowing for the universe to collapse on itself again.
Closing Statement from mike fernandes
Logic was at the core in the formation of this idea. I believe that the force behind the expansion is 1 of the 4 known forces, and therefore, it must likely be electromagnetic in nature.
The idea fits in with the notion that Dark Energy is electromagnetic in nature. Light seems to be powering this continued expansion, and it could even power an electromagnetic force in the fabric of space itself.
