Okay, against my better judgment, I'm going to go ahead and kick the hornet's nest. Superluminals. FTL. Whatever you want to call it, moving faster than the speed of light. One of the things a lot of physicists have a conniption over is that FTL would mean causality violations. Special relativity goes screaming to mommy Physics that you can't do that because it puts you at odds with the Future Light Cone and that since you've gone and broken the speed limit, there would be reference frames where the object sent arrives before it actually gets sent. Then the whole universe breaks down and implodes and there's an enormous cosmic blue screen of death. Universe.exe has stopped responding. Okay, not that last part. (If the universe actually ran on DOS, it would've crashed way before now.) But the reason I'm nailing this post to the wall is to ask a basic question: why? To be honest, the whole idea sounds, well, ridiculous. Common sense logic would indicate that the fastest anything could travel would put it at its destination instantly, not before it left. Which means your travel time is effectively greater than or equal to zero. Never less than. What I'm getting at without attempting to be judgmental or annoying to anyone is that isn't it entirely possible that FTL travel is entirely possible, even reasonable, but with our very limited understanding of such things it only seems impossible? After all, once upon a time, it was thought that the sound barrier was insurmountable, too. It just seems like this is an over-reliance on mathematical models created only on suppositions rather than something that's been completely thought out. Please, no flames, no equations...just an analysis? I'd like to see where the holes in this logic are.
