In reading some posts and science articles, our universe is apparently speeding up, not slowing down. Relating this to relativity, time slows as the speed of light is approached, time stopping at the speed of light, and theoretically time being reversed past the speed of light. If this is all true, and the universe keeps expanding faster for, in many billions of years wouldn't the speed of light ultimately be reached, causing time to stop?

Since time appears normal to object/person which is affected, would it still apear normal to them, but frozen to an observer(outside our universe). If the expansion velocity increased past light, then wouldn't time reverse itself, causing the universe to cave in, also causing backwards laws and physics(ie men turning to babies, decreasing entropy, earthquakes that fix buildings).

Am I just crazy or does this seem at all correct?
