What is the Cosmological Principle?

Question asked by: knowitall

The cosmological principle is a bit obscure, but it boils down to this in simple english:

If you were to look over large enough distances of space, then each part of the Universe looks pretty much like any other part.

In other words, there is much-of-a-muchness throughout the universe, and therefore no place is, as it were, preferred to any other on a large enough scale.
