In this world the gravitational potential is the same in any point and thus the cosmological redshift is favoured as a kinetic phenomenon of special relativity
. In this case there is no need for an equation of the state specifying pressure in cosmology.

However, it is also true that the postulation of a privileged frame of reference is scientifically revisionary, for accepting an absolute relationship of simultaneity between distant events contradicts what is widely considered as the main consequence of Special Relativity
. I do not have the necessary scientific competences for arguing against this view.
Time dilation is referenced in the theory of special relativity
. It is only really evident when objects travel close to the speed of light, so it's hard (though not impossible) to provide any practical examples from everyday life.
(Actually, a correction is also needed for special relativity
, since the satellites' rapid motion slows their clocks.
We are not interested in the well established formulation of Special Relativity
, which are well documented in texts and the internet, but rather in the role of the observers whose characteristics have been implicitly assumed and never been questioned.
As a result, his theory of special relativity
was essentially complete as first set out.

Einstein's theory of special relativity
completely transformed modern physics; not only did it do away with the old notions of absolute space and time, it also introduced some new and rather startling fundamental concepts.
The instantaneous "action at a distance" did not fit well into special relativity
, which is based on a finite speed of interaction.
