IIRC, there are some theoretical reasons that inspired some observations that maybe sorta fail to show a net rotation

What is the latest skinny on a claim made 3-4 years back to effect that the sum total of the radial motion of all galaxies in the visible universe is not zero with respect to the CMB, thus implying the entire visible part of the universe is moving as a whole with respect to CMB?

Thats what I was talking about.

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.  I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.  Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place."  (Matthew 5:17 NAB)

"It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid."  (Luke 16:17 NAB)

Luke 12:51-52
51 "Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division." 52 "For from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three"

Matthew 10:34-35
34 "Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." 35 "For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

I found this under Great Attractor on Wiki. Does it seem familiar ??

The Great Attractor is a gravitational anomaly in intergalactic space at the center of the Laniakea Supercluster that reveals the existence of a localised concentration of mass tens of thousands of times more massive than the Milky Way. This mass is observable by its effect on the motion of galaxies and their associated clusters over a region hundreds of millions of light-years across. The Great Attractor is moving towards the Shapley Supercluster.[1]
These galaxies are all redshifted, in accordance with the Hubble Flow, indicating that they are receding relative to us and to each other, but the variations in their redshift are sufficient to reveal the existence of the anomaly. The variations in their redshifts are known as peculiar velocities, and cover a range from about +700 km/s to −700 km/s, depending on the angular deviation from the direction to the Great Attractor
That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens . . . The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. . . . it is wrong and ultimately self defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must do more to stop it.

No.  The great attractor is still a local phenomenon, explicable by a local concentration of mass on the scale of hundreds of million light years.  The phenomenon announced 4-5 years ago suggest the entire visible universe, all 13 billion observational light years in every direction, has a collective motion relative to CMB.  Since any single source of gravitation formed after CMB would not have had enough time to make its gravity felt across the distance of entire visible universe, a gravitational explanation similar to the great attractor doesn't seem to work.   A suggested explanation was the phenomenon is not the result of any present interaction, but instead a relic of a pre-inflationary interaction betweem what would become our visible universe, and something in another party of the universe that was pushed out of our observation horizon during inflation.

Futurama touched on this possibility  . . .
