You seem to miss the point.

Let's forget coherency- to me it means light can be focussed, to you coherencymeans something different.

But omega is much more interesting to me. You do not seem to realize that omega is one in the present universe according to people like Turner and the Harvard bunch.

It's made up of a bunch of things as you say. But most important it had to be one in the early universe for the universe to survive this long.

And as you say the light that was absorbed, was re-emitted at about 0.6 Myr (some say 0.1Myr). But the point is that all the absorbed light was re-emitted. And at the time of recombination, when light was released as you stated, there was ordinary matter, light and perhaps dark matter. The dark energy was (1000)**3 smaller than it is today- so it was negligible.

The point I am making is that the ordinary matter according to GUT theory, had a tiny omega compared to its measured value today. And since the total omega was one then, and is one now, where did all that extra ordinary matter come from????
