At this level a short string attachment adds many points and a few excited
groups of points [particles]. Interesting consequent: A fixed rate of
attachment of similar short strings looks like a decelerating expansion
rate, flat, low mass universe. However, "meaningfulness" generates a
correlation across the "attachment" mechanism. Thus spikes in attachment
rate and shifts in short string blend can take place. An up tick in
attachment rate looks like an accelerating expansion rate universe.
