This is an introduction to modern ideas on cosmology and on the physical basis of the general theory of relativity. The title reflects the author's contention that the remarkable degree of isotropy, rather than the expansions, can be regarded as the central observational feature of the universe. The various theories and ideas in the big bang cosmology are discussed, providing an insight into modern problems.
