Is there a natural "tendency" for objects to "tend" towards rest in the "big bang track" or "the CMB isotropy frame" if undisturbed otherwise? (other than by the CMB)

Well, that depends on how much of the universe you look at. Pick up a penny. It does not move in relation to your hand. You do not move in relation to the earth. (At the moment) The earth does move in relation to the solar system, but in an oval, not in a line. The milkey way moves only a little in relation to the cluster of galaxies it belongs to, and that is only aimless wandering due to gravity,However, the cluster of galaxies does move in relation to the other clusters. And the maga clusters move in relation to the other clusters. And the even larger clusters that contain the maga clusters move in relation to the other giga-clusters.

ect.$\infty$ So the giga-clusters move, therefore the maga clusters move, therefore the clusters move, therefore the galaxies move. therefore our solar system moves, therefor the earth moves, therefore you move, therefore the penny moves. All of this movement is in the general direction of away from the site of the big bang.

So, small picture, no.

Big picture, yes.

I think (if I'm interpreting you properly) that this is (on average) the "big bang track" or "CMB isotropy frame". Anything on it is at rest in that frame (such as it is; distant objects may be "Hubbling along" at greater than the speed of light in each others "inertial frame" but they are both at rest in the BBT/CMBI frame).

Anything "off track" should be somewhat compelled by the anisotropy of the CMB to "tend" toward "getting back on track" or toward rest in the BBT/CMBI frame. Correct?

Thank-you anyway and happy birthday (slightly belated).

Another way of looking at this is:

How much drag would the CMB cause to high speed space travel? "High speed" of course being relative to the BBT/CMBI frame (does anybody know any other names for it?).

Is it applying any force to you? If not, then none. If so, then whatever the relative force then applies is the drag your "high speed space travel" device experiences.

Is your question then "does CMB apply force to anything?"

FYI, you cannot go past the speed of light in any frame, according to the current model. Even if two objects are moving .99c away from each other, they will never go past light speed (or reach it if they are not pure energy). I never learned the math, but it has been mentioned on the forum within the past month if you care to look for it.

Inertial frame locally not any frame.

I believe Aristotle's organicist cosmology is correct, and probably his most profound insight into the true nature of the universe, although his aspect of his beliefs is pretty much entirely overlooked. However the man believed the four fundamental elements were earth, air, fire, and water, and was perplexed by the fact that life forms could create movement out of nowhere. Nothing else could do that! If any of his discoveries in the realm of physics actually coincide with complex behaviors in reality (i.e. CMB interference) I'd say it's purely coincidence.
