I realize there are numerous speculations on the nature of dark matter/energy, what it is, and where it is, and of the very nature of space. From my simplistic perspective I understand that space is expanding at an accelerated pace and that the existence of dark matter appears to be the main speculation that satisfies the math. I believe the assumption is that the big bang occurred in a void, or rather there was nothing - there was no space until the the BB created it. However, if multiverse speculations are correct and that there are or has been a possible infinite previous number of BBs, all of which would have created there own space, wouldn't it be likely that there is space everywhere. So our BB would have erupted into already existing space. What then would occur as the momentum of our space interacted with existing space? If space has a particle nature with each particle protecting its own "personal" zone, wouldn't that mean that as our space met existing space they would necessarily spread out so they could mesh - this is the essence of expansion. As our space continued to expand in all directions under the momentum of the BB it would need to mesh with an increasing quantity of existing space which would explain the accelerated expansion we observe. If that were the case, then that explains why there is no dark matter - it is not a necessary component to explain accelerated expansion of space.
