Arguments are presented to show that the current standard model of the cosmos always violates the energy conservation law, even when it shouldn't for asymptotically flat space‐time in a closed system, and that such a violation can be linked analytically to the use of a radially focused Robertson‐Walker (RW) based distance metric. Results are also presented to show how certain standard‐model assumptions strongly affect particle horizon attributes and how the analytical use of a θ‐axis‐focused RW distance metric can serve as a vehicle to demonstrate the impact of matter‐based gravitation on photon trajectory attributes that can be associated with energy conservation in flat space‐time.
