Why did dark energy appear in the Universe only 9 bil yrs after the Big Bang?

​What if gravity is some type of collusion between dark matter and dark energy?


” Although the expansion of the universe gradually slowed down as the matter in the universe pulled on itself via gravity, about 5 or 6 billion years after the Big Bang, according to NASA, a mysterious force now called dark energy began speeding up the expansion of the universe again, a phenomenon that continues today. ”


… the big question is what does that have to do with this:

” Between 10−43 second and 10−36 second after the Big Bang

As the universe expanded and cooled, it crossed transition temperatures at which forces separate from each other. These can be regarded as phase transitions much like condensation and freezing phase transitions of ordinary matter. The grand unification epoch began when gravitation separated from the gauge forces. The non-gravitational physics of this epoch would be described by a so-called grand unified theory (GUT). The grand unification epoch ended when the GUT forces further separate into the strong and electroweak forces. “
