Thread: Why Just Us ? View Single Post
 Mentor For the record, my post #3 doesn't make much sense: I'll retract the second paragraph, and blame it on the time I posted it An important thing to remember is, as marcus says, that we tend to assume some sort of uniformity over the entire universe. Once you do this, then you only really need to consider the observable universe since it is all that is useful for making observations. Of course, once the assumption of uniformity is dropped, then we are playing a completely different game.
