The new observations of increasingly-fast universal expansion are
consistent with the model that the universe is simply doubling its
diameter every standard time interval. This model says that if we
measure the "Hubble constant" using deep-space objects we will get
lower values than if we use nearby objects -- in accordance with
observation. This results from the erroneous premise that the Hubble
number is constant.
Further, this model replicates the inverse angular-size - z
correlation, as z=3 light stems from a universe which is half the size
of the universe at z=1, and this size difference plus the increased
distance to z=3 can yield the observation that z=3 objects have about
a third the angular size of z=1 objects.
Of course, the main consequence of the observation that the universe
doubles in size every T(0) is that cosmological expansion is after all
not expansion at all, but rather the steady procession of another
universal parameter which yields results which look to us like
physical expansion. The immediate candidate which comes to mind is
that the flow of time is simply doubling every T(0), or, perhaps,
*appears* to be doubling every T(0) due to some kind of process which
keeps the past, present, and future separate.
