    How does speed effect.........?

    I was wondering, is there anything in any of the string or loop theories that says how (and indeed if) the extra 6 or so dimensions would be effected by travel close to light speed?

    Im not exactly sure but they way the extra dimensions were referred to as 'spatial dimensions' id assume light would follow the same principles as before they would simply have more 'space' at which these rules would apply?

    *sorry not light but you meant speed of light travel. basically i dont think you could get anywhere faster.. youd simply have 6 times as many places to go.. but they wouldnt create a bridge in spacetime as far as i understand it.
