Imagine you have a box of black body radiation. What happens if you open the box for a long time? It becomes dispersed and no radiation remains in the box.
Now, apply this example to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation. The CMB has been produced about 380,000 years after the Big Bang. Giving that the space is flat as many observations suggest, that radiation has been produced in a universe with no boundaries.
Now, my question is this: in these conditions, why that radiation has not been dispersed completely so far? It is true that the radiation has been produced everywhere in the space but giving that the space is infinite, why has not it been dispersed do far?
Calculations in the standard textbooks are done in such a way as if the CMB has been within a physical box, however expanding with the universal expansion. But, this is not the actual situation. The CMB has not been and is not enclosed by walls of a box, so it must have completely dispersed so far. What has prevented this to happen?
