The universe is nearly isotropic on very large scales. It is much more difficult to show that the universe is radially homogeneous (independent of distance), or equivalently, that it is isotropic about distant points. This taken as an axiom, since if it were not true, then we would occupy a preferred position. This paper considers several empirical arguments for radial homogeneity based on the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The tightest limits on inhomogeneity on the scale of the horizon… Expand
