Main Question or Discussion Point
if it were possible to send a message or travel at speed's higher than light what would happen? i know that at the speed of light time would stop.but beyond....?
This is not correct. There is still NO consensus that a tunneling signal travels faster than c. Please see:Messages already have been sent faster than light speed, by making use of the tunnel effect.
I thought that sending information faster than the speed of light was forbidden by special relativityMessages already have been sent faster than light speed, by making use of the tunnel effect.
This is a completely different subject and should not be discussed in this thread. You are asking about non-locality, where a particle's position is spread out over various locations. This is NOT the same as having a FTL movement! That is why I said this is a different subject.I'm a physics layman, so please bear with me...
I was under the impression that when a photon is created, it's wave function instantly fills the entire universe, i.e. there is a very small, but non-zero possibilty of detecting it virtually anywhere.
Is this correct?
Nonlocality leads to the possibilty of FTL communication, though:This is a completely different subject and should not be discussed in this thread. You are asking about non-locality, where a particle's position is spread out over various locations. This is NOT the same as having a FTL movement!
It's "tachyon", and this is hypothetical. If we want to deal with speculative, unverified particle, I can spew out several. Is this what we want, or do we want something that's verified, as per my question?Yeah there have a particle that travel faster than a light which is ka-ki-yon I don't know if I spell it right or not, but I think not, but anyway this particle can not travel in a speed that lower than light year it can only travel in a speed that faster than light year. But this is just a theory can not be improve yet, but now scientists try figure it out right now.
Okay, so what about these vacuum fluctuations, which are said to be occurring at the sub-Planck scale. If we apply sub-Planck even to the time-axis, then doesn't this imply events which are occurring faster than light?
No.can't a virtual particle's travel faster than light? or some connection between virtual particle's and and the idea of faster than light.
I can't help but find this fact to be quite unfair :)If we take a photon and split it so that the two are entangled, then no matter what we do to one happens to the other INSTANTLY.
So you may think: "Hey I can send messages faster than light using this method."
But you can't.
