CMB and LSS allow us to probe the relics of inflation: phonons aka spatial volume fluctuations, which combine into an entropy-like measure, the orthogonal though entangled isocons, the holy grail gravitons, and the 4-volume dilaton fluctuations. The Standard Model of Cosmology is an amazing few parameter characterization of Planck and other data, but our theorizing and CMB + LSS experiments are in quest of what lies Beyond the SMc.
