ok, the cmb is the background light from the big bang that stretched from visible light to radio waves......... what if the speed of light isnt as constant as we take for granted. for the brief time before the light shifted spectrum perhaps the speed of light , was actually much faster. and once that cmb light shifted it created a sort of friction with light. Creating the speed of light we now observe. and take for a constant since we cannot remove the background static remnant of the big bang. It makes perfect sence to me , that this explains cosmic inflation as it is known. and gives it a reason to have happened. Some one please explain why this does or doesnt work or how it could be proved . I cant believe im that smart that noone has thought of this. But i cant seem to reason it away either. halp !
