But my query was in relation to terminology rather than concept.
ie. Should the rate of expansion of the universe be anything other than linear, then that process must be considered finite rather than constant.
In the case for energy being eternal; as energy is relative to space, this would require the universe having definably limits, ie. enclosed within a sphere, and also mean that any change of state within the universe would be energy free.
