Is this idea of dark energy any good?
So the basic theory of dark energy (from what I have heard) is that it is an invisible type of energy so abundant as to take up 70% of the universe, and to be the driving force behind inflation theory. Now, (taking a minor deviation) we also know that energy can never be generated perpetually, as a little of that energy is bled off all the time. So my idea is this. What if dark energy is merely that bled off energy from all the systems of the universe? In my opinion, this would also satisfy the need for energy in systems to be a constant, because the universe is one large system, and all that energy is making it larger. Does this make sense? Feedback/criticism would be great. Thanks all.
