What if speed=time/distance? Torpidity

I really liked this thread I just found on this forum. I would like to continue it as I just read Feynman Checkerboard as a Model of Discrete Space-Time.

This addresses space time on a checker board with single time units on one axis and a single space dimension on the other. There are only finite space units and time units, though ~small. The limiting velocity is 1. That is one space unit and one time unit. All speeds are this amount or less.

To travel below the max, you must travel less than one space unit in one time unit. But this is not possible as the space units are not divisible. But you can always travel several time units for one space unit.

This provides utility for t/d considerations. Or as presented in the original thread, torpidity.

Thread closed pending moderation.

Edit: The thread will remain closed. There is no point in discussing a quantity that is 1/speed and that no one will ever actually use.
