Or does it raise it?
But now, seriously speaking, is it really so firmly established that, say,
the evolution of stars seems to progress at the same rate everywhere? I
don't know, I'm asking. Last minimally serious readings I did on
astrophysics were in the very early '90s. I'm not sure the question of
uniformity of Physics across the universe (barring singularities) was
settled by then.
