Data can't move faster than the speed of light?? Okay, so I've heard this basic concept several times in physics texts... so if someone could explain how this simple example I'm giving doesn't debunk it that'd be awesome. Imagine you had a seesaw constructed in outer space. Let's imagine that seesaw is very long. Say, 100 billion miles long. Would it not be possible to instantly tap out morse code using this seesaw, thus circumventing the supposed limitation that data can't be transmitted faster than the speed of light? D 0 - Bell x x x 0 - Fulcrum } 100 billion miles x x x x Move this end to strike bell, tapping out morse code 100 billion miles away, instantly. Now, I know constructing this object in space wouldn't be feasible or even remotely possible, but my point is the concept. Why couldn't this work, allowing faster than light data transmission? Thanks for any responses.
