Here is the question you asked:

"my question is, is this idea at all supported by what ive read, because when i saw that folding thing and mentions of unraveling, it reminded me of that idea. thank you "

Now to take your question literally without interpretive editing, the answer is:

Since I do not know what you have read, I cannot tell you if your idea supports it.

But I do believe that you did not intend to ask the question that way. I would put it this way:

Is the idea that twisted space is matter correct?

My answer is YES, based on string theory, if you consider compactification of space to be twisting space. Somewhere, maybe in this thread, I explained my idea that cosmic axions precipated from 6 compactified dimensions. At least the way Abraham talks of compactification, it is very much like twisting space in 6 different directions.

It is also possible that twisting 16 of the original 26 dimensions may make quarks and electrons. So you are correct.

On the other hand, I do not see how that could explain the acceleration of the expansion of the universe. For one thing there is no untwisting going on.

It appeasrs instead that there is another presently unknown force causing the expansion.

Hope this helps.
