does inflation affect time? my question arises from @ ~7:30min. if space itself can be used as a reference point for speed, is it an omnipresent observer? is it therefore not excepted from SR if space is moving relative to space? I have searched the forums already, im trying not to double post or bother people with the same questions. if its answered elsewhere please indulge me with perhaps a simpler explanation, as its probably likely i have already found the answer to my questions but failed to understand completely what I was reading. thanks in advance for your time.
