The recent map of the Universe shows a cellular void structure that indicates a structural change from a homogenous early universe to an inhomogeneous one today. Experiments with flocculated smectite clay solution show similar structure building phenomena. Similarities between the largest structure of the Universe and that formed and evolved within mutually flocculated clay dispersion suggests that our Universe may be a dynamic entity dominated, shaped and driven, not by dark forces, but by chance and competition between electromagnetic and gravitational forces.
