I am not the only one to question The Cosmological Principle (CP) that the Universe must look the same in all directions from all points of observation.  CP is presented as the logical extension of the Copernican Principle that the Earth does not have a central favored position:

  • If the Earth does not have a central favored position, then there is no such position; all positions are equally central and favored.

We understand that this is a form of cosmological marxism: every position is equal, but as in the Animal Farm maybe there are positions which are more equal?

In any case CP is questioned by many including:

Evidently CP is handy, but direct experimental verification is (of course) difficult, and instead philosophical arguments are being put forward. CP thus offers material to real-life observations of the nature of theoretical physics. Go ahead
