Expansion is Existence

It's interesting that it was only recently "discovered" that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, or that it is a shocking idea.  It seems like it would be intuitive that the universe has to expand like that, otherwise it would not exist.  I really don't think it has a choice.  If the acceleration were slowing, it would mean the universe is reaching a certain "point."  And any point is arbitrary making existence "unsupportable."

Even expanding at a specific rate is arbitrary.  It has to be an accelerating and un-pinable rate.  Anything that could define the universe as arbitrary would cause it to cease existing.
