If you look in every direction will you see the samething?

Scientists have recently managed to get visual information from the big cloud that followed the big bang explosion wich is the oldest light to be seen by mankind. If we look in every direction far enough we will always see that cloud. what do you think?

Even if you could look that far, would the image that you see really represent the location of the object? Light bends towards large masses.

It doesn't matter what anyone may "think". The observations from COBE & WMAP (and others) show that this is the case and any cosmological theory must account for it. Alan Guth's inflation was a neat idea and the maths remains correct but Gibbons & Turok show that the probablility that the universe underwent inflation to get to the here and now goes as exp(-3N) where N is the number of e-folds. That is, the more inflation, the less likely.

It's much more probable that a 5th, large space dimension exists and future experiments at the LHC (ATLAS in particular) at CERN will probably give the evidence that this is the case...

well in a few millenia humans (if they exist) will scoff at the outdated technology such as the CERN telescope. Or they might take the "pyramid approach" and wonder how such feeble minds were able to create the telescope.

My question is, is this CLH cloud a perfect sphere?
