Frame of reference is absolutely critical: think about our position in our universe and galaxy, astronomers have had to overcome our frame of reference for centuries. We've finally been able to overcome some of these obstacles over the decades, but it's similar to an advanced civilization that could hypothetically begin underwater. If they never break the surface, then from their point of view, the world is only what they observe.

And txen is absolutely right, the CMB accounts for much of what we know from the beginnings of our universe.
