One of the underlying assumption of the theory of Relativity is that there is no absolute frame of reference, but wouldn't the microwave background radiation serve as one? The faster you move through space, relative to this field of radiation, the higher in frequency, or more energetic this radiation should appear according to Relativity. That implies that there is a frame in which the energy of this radiation appears at a minimum. So wouldn't this be an absolute frame of reference in contradiction to Relativity? Thanks.
