The FTL expansion of the early universe is explained by the "stretching" of spacetime itself so that a meter stick would be uniformly "stretched". Two questions: 1. Is the stretching of the meter stick only in the direction of the expansion? Is it sensible to talk about the direction of expansion? Perhaps the meter stick just gets larger in 3 spatial dimensions? 2. Does time also "stretch"? If it does, than lightspeed could be preserved. If so, inflation is may not really be FTL.
