I, as you, do not assume a unique and absolute common universe can be
had for an arbitrary pair of LS's. This is, to me, one reason why I
think that the Big Bang hypothesis is seriously wrong. I call a common
universe a "cosmos". It is my conjecture that a cosmos is such that the
observers x and y of it agree within some error that it is the same for
all of them. I think that the error bound is proportional to distance
d(x,y) between observers and thus intimately related to the Hubble
expansion. There is more to this that I will deal with within the
context of Weyl's work..
