    Then maybe you should.

    Look up the definition of "inertial frame of reference" and "postulates of Special Relativity".

    And, you might want to think about precisely what you mean by "our position in relation to the universe?"

    (The fact that you couldn't bother doing any research yourself before posting this is the best reason for "beating you up". Unfortunately, I don't have my two-by-four with me right now.)
