Speed of light "boundary" ? I have a simple question : When everyone is talking about the "speed of light boundary" what is it relative to ? Speed is ALWAYS relative to "something" else, otherwise it doesnt even make any sense. Which brings a second point : if there is indeed a speed of light boundary (at least a boundary for "something else" to happen : infinite mass / dematerialize / instant travel you name it) it must be relative to a supposedly fixed point in the Universe, which must make authority FOR THE WHOLE UNIVERSE. Otherwise I don't see how the so called speed of light boundary can make any sense. It could be the "place" where the big bang happened (if you cope with that theory) meaning everything is expanding away from this point (center of the Universe). To me space "emptiness" can be compared to air. Just like soundwaves are vibrating through air (which is its basic construct) at a fixed speed limit, I would make the analogy that light is vibrating thru the basic construct of space/emptiness (which isnt "nothing" at all) at another fixed speed limit. Then space could be compared as a fluid just like wind would change the speed of sound relative to you (not the air). I would call this space wind, which is affected by gravity. Gravity would speed up that construct just like a blackhole swallows everything around it and opens a wormhole some say. Now back to the speed of light, in my mind the speed of light can only be relative to the construct it vibrates through (space/"emptiness") just like the speed of sound is relative to air. Now if you go faster than the speed of light relative to that construct (now this sets a reference...) then "something" might happen. Russians have already experienced fields reacting at far more than the speed of light, supposedly at infinite speed and they call them torsion fields, but it doesn't say more about matter ;) What are you thoughts about this ?
