Hi, I've been thinking about too quite simple ways to create what I believe to be faster-than-light speeds, and would like to know your opinion. First experiment: 1. Shoot a laser pointer on the moon on a clear night sky. 2. Move the dot through the diameter of the moon. If a person standing on the moon could see the "red dot" (assuming no divergence). Couldn't he "see" it go faster than c if you flicked your wrist quickly enough? Second experiment: 1. Take two sheets of paper, one in each hand and hold them out in front of you, facing you, so that they overlap. Tilt one of them slightly. 2. Now slowly seperate them. 3. When the inside edges meet, you see an angle formed between the sheets. The vertex moves perpendicularly to the movement of the sheets. 4. The smaller the angle, the faster the vertex will move. 5. Since you can choose the angle to be zero, you can make the vertex go an infinite speed. No mass or energy is involved, so no law is broken, but its a awfully simple way to have something (a vertex) go really fast.
