perhaps the actual sprites were SHRINKING , and the monitor kept still,
And they were not just shrinking at a uniform rate but were accelerating...And funnily enough a by-product to this would be Gravity!...

I was thinking the same thing- that what we see as expansion of space could just as easily be the universal shrinkage of matter, and that the force causing everything to shrink causes the side-effects that we know as gravity.

And maybe blackholes are the result of "forced" shrinkage which causes an imbalance of shrinkage rates.

Then again, I really don't know what I'm talking about.

HeHE, i was joking.

But true , it doesnt really matter which way you look at it, iTs the difference in change that matters...

The idea that in a (simple no gravity) universe ,with only you in a stationary space ship , you would float around... now accelerate, and suddenly you have gravity, and no matter how you tried, you could not tell the difference between gravity or acceleration.

Now acceleration in the nth ( please put in number)...
All mass has gravity. just an idea.
