Abstract: The rationale for Flat Space Cosmology (FSC) calculations of gravitational entropy in the form ofis presented. These calculations indicate a tight correlation with the COBE DMR measurement showing CMB RMS temperature variations of 18 micro Kelvins. The COBE dT T anisotropy ratio of 0.66 × 10−5 falls within the FSC gravitational entropy range calculated for the beginning and ending conditions of the recombination decoupling epoch. Thus, the FSC model incorporating gravity as an emergent property of entropy suggests that the CMB temperature anisotropy pattern could simply be a map of gravitational entropy, as opposed to a magnified “quantum fluctuation” event at a finite beginning of time.
