Epochs and the reference frames.
Ptolemee considered, that reference frame which connected
with the Earth is absolute.
Copernicus proved that reference frame which connected
with the Sun is absolute.
Then it was consider that reference frame which connected
with far stars is absolute.
Now it is consider, that reference frame which connected with
relict isotropic radiation T = 2,7K is absolute.
But T = 2,7K is not a constant factor.
This relict isotropic radiation continues to extend and
decrease and with time will reach T=0K.
Today physicists refuse to take vacuum as a fundament of Universe.
Book : ‘Dreams of a final theory’
by Steven Weinberg. Page 138.
‘ It is true . . . there is such a thing as absolute zero; we cannot
reach temperatures below absolute zero not because we are not
sufficiently clever but because temperatures below absolute zero
simple have no meaning.’
/ Steven Weinberg. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1979 /
My opinion.
It is true we cannot reach the zero temperature T=0K.
But just because we cannot reach this Vacuum’s
parameter, does it mean that it cannot exist ?
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it,
does it make a sound?
If unseen virtual antiparticles can appear from vacuum (!)
( Vacuum’s fluctuations / transformation / polarization )
and we can observe them as a real particles doesn’t it mean
that vacuum itself is an Absolute Reference Frame which
has its own physical parameter – Absolute Zero: T=0K.
When the next revolution rocks physics,
chances are it will be about nothing—the vacuum,

that endless infinite void.
Best wishes.

It is hard to admit ideas of ' tomorrow ' even they are logically clear.
As Planck said:
"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing
its opponents and making them see the light, but rather
because its opponents eventually die, and
a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
/ Max Planck./
