Confusion * 2

Confusion #1: the assertion that were the universe to start contracting, the arrow of time would be reversed and thus we would see everything running backwards . . . and . . . something contracting viewed backwards appears to expand, so everything would just look the way it does anyway.

Confusion #2: trying to make sense of the CMB data.

Been talking to D about starting a band within the department.
