Ok, no jokes about expanding waistlines.
I’ve been reading lately about this theorized dark energy causing the universe to expand at ever increasing rates. Everything away from everything else until we reach a point where there will be no further information we can detect or observe. Or some such thing.
Does this apply to me? Are the particles of my body expanding away from each other at ever increasing rates? How much will I have expanded over a normal lifetime? Would I ever be able to tell?
If I lived long enough, would I expand away from myself indefinitely? Would I eventually encompass as much volume as the universe now encompasses?
Or does this only apply to stars & galaxies, etc?
