The reason the universe is expanding may be because it is like a snake eating its own tail. This could also explain why today’s universe is expanding at an accelerating rate. Let’s rewind some billions of years to explain the basis of this theory.

The dot was so dense that it included all of space-time inside itself. Thus, there could be no gravity as we understand the word; there was no space-time to warp.
