- TL;DR Summary
- So I was standing outside one night, and it occurred to be that I was looking back toward the Big Bang. I then realized that every direction I looked toward at, I was looking toward the Big Bang.

So: DO all geodesics begin and end at the Big Bang?

If all geodesics begin and end at the Big Bang, then every point is (always (at)) the Center of the Universe.

So. It was late night, the limpid sky a near cloudless darkness, somewhat lightened by the waxing moon. I being somewhat stoned and looking at the stars and constellations as I sometimes do, and it came to seem to me, in my imagination, that In the spaces between the stars, I was observing (in my imagination, The CMB is too cold to actually light up an electron.) the CMB. And that behind the veil of the CMB was, in my extended imaginary and hopefully straight lined vision, the Big Bang.

And then I thought, wait a minute. I'm looking in a random direction. I could be looking in any direction, and the vector of my imagination, would point to the Big Bang.

Then I thought, Whoa! What kind of space is this,? where all the points at "infinity," in every direction are- the same point?

And then, of course, if my interpretations of my observations were correct, it was trivial to conclude that every point is always at the center of the universe.
