Expansion is Existence

Basic intuition should tell us that the universe is expanding exponentially.  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."  Arbitrary cannot exist on its own.

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. 

*Asymptotically speaking, a case could be made for a point but... this is beyond my pay grade.
