ether (aether) - a particle in the Universe
The Sun goes through a process called "radiation" (Transfer of energy through space). It radiates light. However, light has to travel through what we call a medium. Mass. There are 3 states of matter: Solid, liquid, and gas. Anything that's neither of those would originally not have mass (Which would be space). So, how does it travel? Well, nonetheless, space is occupiable by matter.
According to the 2nd law of thermodynamics, everything tends toward disorder. So, if after the Big Bang, all this mass moved out, along with the Universe's expansion, at this point in time, it must be far away from us, far enough that our forces no longer affect it. So, it must not be here. So, tell me: What matter will occupy the space?
No, no, and no! This is a self-contradiction. So, if the galaxy's gravitational pull can affect more than up until how large the Universe is now (As you say), then that gravity would have already caught that mass. If it weren't, as according to the law of Inertia, everything in motion remains in motion and everything at rest remains at rest until acted upon by a force, it would still, by now, be moving out, along with the Universe's expansion.
Also, how did the ether get there? Possibly convertion? Fusion?
