What's Really Causing The Universe To Expand?

The expansion of the universe is believed to be caused by a combination of factors, primarily the leftover energy from the Big Bang known as dark energy and the initial outward momentum created by the Big Bang. As usual it will be appreciated that don't subscribe to all this scientific wordspeak because it causes a lot of confusion and I don't like confusion. The reason why the universe expands is so not to be alone. In other words. It's all about companionship really; companionship, friendship, love. There is a higher truth but it is a bit mind blowing and it's past my bedtime so I will explain it another time. But what it basically comes down to is that we are here not to fight one another but to love each other. I can guarantee you that.
