I'm sorry if this doesn't exactly fit in the topic, but it applies to the general subject I guess. I have been pondering on this question for about a week, and now I want to ask it. Why do we have it so ingrained in us that we HAVE to go the speed of light (or faster) to get anywhere? Assuming light travels 186,000mps in a vacuum, and taking into account a previous threads and observations where light is alway moving c faster than you in any frame of reference, then it is and has been blatantly obvious that we'll never reach that speed, because, as said a million times, that becomes infinite. So why not just go 186,001mps? Is there anything saying that we can't go faster than light's speed (with us at a standstill, I'm assuming)? Or twice or ten times that speed? Common sense tells that if you just keep on the accelerator that you'll eventually go faster than that, but what I'm not sure of, is if general physics breaks down at that speed, even though relatively you're not even near c. Or is it just pop-culture that we assume we have to achieve something that we think is impossible?
