Would it not also be true, that assuming the cosmological constant issame

really some positive value, it would mean that each and every unbound

cosmological structure would be accelerating away from each other at the

exact rate.

Not really. The amount of the acceleration would depend on the distance

the unbound structures were from each other, the masses of those

structures, and the mean density of any background matter that might

fill the space between and around the structures.

Dave When I wrote the above I made the assumption (Which I should have

stated) that the effects of the attractive component of gravity was zero.

Given that as an assumption then the acceleration of every unbound structure

in the Universe would be a function of the cosmological constant and R only.

It is my contention that R is the same for every unbound structure therefore

all the unbound structures would experience the same acceleration.
