        The "abrupt end"? Is brief a million years, a femtosecond...?
So the speed slowed very rapidly for a "brief" pirioud and now were
speeding back up again? If things are speeding up, then we'll
eventually overttake the initial speed right? Or is the rate of speed
up ever decreasing such that there is still a final speed limit?

        And what and why is there this 'boundary' where things change
so dramtically? And who is to say their might not be other
"boundaries" when the speed changes dramatically in the future?

        I know, I know, to many questions. Is there some reference to
some good web pages or something where I can read up about all this

        Thanks again,
