    Information's relation to Time and Mass

    The logic makes sense, but technically that is very improbable. Does it reconstruct the object at the speed of light? If it doesn't, then time would be very fragmented and not smooth. And anyways, nothing can travel faster than light-- according to Einstein, but which I do not believe. After...

    Hi everybody,this is my first post. So sorry for the possible

    Bjorken discovered what is known as light-cone scaling, (or "Bjorken scaling") a phenomenon in the deep inelastic scattering of light on strongly interacting particles, known as hadrons (such as protons and neutrons)... think that's what you're looking for.
