when i think of a particle standing still, i look at it as if it were moving through time, propagating a wake, the wake representing its information propagation. the farther you are from the particle, the longer it will take the wake,travelling at c at its fastest to reach you. because alternate realities seems very paradoxical, i have come to the conclusion that reality travels at the speed of light. to me there is no other way to view reality. if the sun dissappears, we will not recieve that information for 8 minutes. someone might then, in my opinion falsely, conclude that the sun dissapeared 8 minutes ago. however, i firmly believe that 4 minutes ago accoding to us on earth, the sun still existed, and that was our true reality. because the closest logical explanation of reality would be "reality is what happens in the universe. particle interactions etc.., i have to believe that reality can only be defined at a point.
