A RELATIVISTIC UNIVERSE

Imagine for a moment that there is a centre of mass to the universe which we have not yet discovered. Imagine also that we are moving away from that centre at the speed of light (or as close to it as the laws of physics allow). We would all be moving together in our part of the universe so that everything would appear quite normal, but from the universal point of view we would be squashed flat by the Fitzgerald contraction because of our high velocity. We would be like electromagnetic foam rippling the surface of an expanding pond moving forward in time at the speed of light.
