The universe is expanding - so does that mean there's a center from which everything is
stretching?
I mean, it LOOKS like the center is here, because this point didn't move when we scaled.
But we could just as easily have watched the scaling from this star, or this one, and they
each "look" like the center.
In fact, ANY time you scale anything up or down, there's no real center to the scaling.
I mean, this square was clearly scaled up from its center...
I mean, its corner.
I mean, that point over there.
The point... is, sure there may be points that stay in the same place because of your
frame of reference, which is why it appears to us as if the earth is the center of the
expansion of the universe, but to someone in the Andromeda Galaxy it would appear that
THEY were the center of the expansion.
In short, if you're too close-minded to view the universe from different perspectives,
it's easy to think you're at the center of the universe.
Maybe that's the universe's way of making us all feel special?
But really, we're not.
