Supose for simplicity that c = 1 m/s, and that it is the highest velocity a massive body can achieve.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So if, when t = 0, you are located at x = 0, the limiting velocity c forbids you to reach the position x = 1 (or x = -1) until the clock reaches t = 1 s. Isn't it confinement ?

And, if it is , according to quantum mechanics, confinement implies discretization of the energy spectrum.

I ask then:

Does this relativity postulate imply quantum discretization of energy spectrum of all massive entities?
