Well, we know the universe is not air or water, it`s only a anology I `m trying to compare:
when the universe expands, does it expand like an air baloon in water or does it expand like a water baloon in the air? What I mean is : Is it something expanding into nothing or vice-versa. Or is it expand into itself ? Picture an apple on the air , you will see both ends have a hollowed area that connect by the apple core, get that? OK! Can you image the universe is expanding like one end (big end) of an apple then collapsing into another end at the same time, the other end with a hollowed area, the process then repeat itself via the core .Matter is constantly being created and destroyed, then again you can eat the apple and the bacterias wouldn`t know what happen.
