New Bias in orientation of galaxies
[link|http://arxiv.org/abs/0708.4013|arXiv]
Very interesting, the elliptical galaxies show a distinct bias in orientation. And this matches oddities found previously in the background radiation of the universe.

This could be because of some previously unknown observer bias, it could be because of a flawed assumption in the survey, or it could indicate that the big bang had some structure. If it is the last it will have huge implications.

New Perhaps it has structure because . . .
. . our universe is just part of a bigger spiral thingy?

New This is minor oddity, compared with - -
Why there is any 'matter' left at all: why did not the 'normal' + antimatter do what these do when they meet ??? (Or, at least - oscillate in relative dominance!?)

(Always we love to 'get back to symmetry', as it just feels so Right. No?)

Physics (astro- or other) at its extremes - becomes indistinguishable from its meta- counterpart. And with astrophysics - there isn't even that "colloquy of argumentative minds" to assess "experimental results". (We are pretty bad at Nation building; fortunately for the Cosmos - we don't get to do terraforming. One hopes.)

Now, if we tweak that Gravitational Constant juuust a tad

New It suggested something else to me.
I was wondering if the 'bias' in structure could point toward a 'centre'.

Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please

New That works also
I was thinking more along the lines of the big bang having some degree of spin, but a center is also possible.

Thinking that way, it could also mark the point where one of the energy level collapses that separated the fundamental forces happened. I can easily see the drop happening in one point and the rippling through all of space at the speed of light, creating a shock wave that would align things.
