  Could the universe be stable as it expands when viewed from a slower time frame?

+ 0 like - 2 dislike

As the universe expands the energy required to produce a stable electron (0.51... MeV) is now spread over a relatively larger area.
However the speed of light has remained the same and if a stable yet dimensionally larger electron could form its size would now be larger relative to the speed of light.
Which would seem like an issue in creating a stable universe similar to our own.
However, if this is viewed from a slower time frame then the light will appear to move faster.
Would this thus be a stable universe where all of the particles are larger but time runs slower? And from an observer inside of this time frame things appear relatively the same to our view of the current universe.
Could this logic extend backwards to a smaller but faster universe in the past?
Can this continue indefinitely?
