  • Only a tiny, perhaps an infintesimal fraction of all the universes in the multiverse offer conditions that allow life to exist, because only this fraction have parameters that permit matter to organize itself into galaxies, stars, and planets, and for those objects to last for billions of years.

    Again, there is absolutely no teleology involved

  • I think SR is entirely inapplicable at cosmological distances in a non-empty GR universe, first because there is no global inertial frame, second because the photon passes every local galaxy at exactly c, and third and most importantly because there simply is no place in the FLRW metric to arbitrarily insert an SR time dilation factor which aggregates a quasi-infinite set of infintesimal local time dilations.

  • My recollection is that the papers you and your team wrote did not directly address the question of whether cosmological redshift can be formulated in terms of infintesimal SR and/or gravitational time dilations (in appropriate coordinate systems).

    Does Space Expand?

  • I want to understand how a long series of infintesimal SR time dilations can accumulate as a photon travels the cosmological distances (z1) between Galaxy A and Galaxy B, without violating the FLRW constraint that all clocks in the Hubble flow remain synchronized.

    Does Space Expand?

  • We each contribute an infintesimal bit to the world's progress, but it IS a contribution.
