Everything you describe above is consistent with coordinate time (which is
the time reported by a clock at absolute rest). The problem then becomes
some reference for absolute rest...
You can do it, but it won't explain anything that is not already accounted
Ooh, please sir, I know what it is!
I suggested the CMB might define Edgar's absolute rest frame :-)
Hey, I suggested it first. :-)
But the thing about the CMB rest frame is that it's position dependent due to expansion of
the universe. Just look at Ned Wright's diagrams. So it's not a single inertial frame,
it's an epoch at which the proper time to the big-bang is the same for all the stuff
that's always been locally stationary.
