Or... time?

I recall reading a fascinating new theory - or conjecture - that turns everything on its head: it suggests that the apparent observed change in rate of expansion which lead to the necessity of inventing this unobserved and perhaps unobservable 'dark matter' and 'dark energy' (perhaps the mythical 'ether' of the 21st century?) is just that - an *apparent* change; the true underlying mechanism is that *time itself* is slowing down and will - eventually - stop entirely. It's an elegant conjecture certainly.
