    OK smarties, riddle me this......

    From what I understand, nothing with mass can travel faster than the speed of light. Also light itself has mass. If you were to get a spaceship to go exactly the speed of light, and had a light mounted on the front facing forwards and turned it on, would the light shine forwards? If so, wouldn't it be going twice the speed of light?

    Wondered about this for years.

    Stop wondering

    It ain't possible to travel at the speed of light.

    But the "answer" to your question is that its all relative, thanks to Einstein

    Do a google search " Flashlight speed of light "

    I like the concept of folding space.

    From HVAC to Quantum Physics.....what's next? Who's in the know on brain surgery? Out of my league....


    Hey guys...how do you adjust the superheat? I don't know, but I can split the atoms making up the coil...

    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    I seen this thing about the fermilab and antimatter and what the charachteristics could do for us for enegry. To propel us to long distances with an infinite reuseable fuel. Thats some cool stuff. I would love to tour that place. They have indeed discovered and then harvested anit matter which sits suspended in a magnetic feild that floats in this tube around the fermilab. The problem is, making anit matter in quantities useable as we know how to use at the moment, it just can't yeild the amount right now. They get like one 1 thing of anti matter for every million tries. 1 small amount if anti matter can be like ten mega nuclear bombs. Pretty wild.

    HA HA! Well, now that you mentioned it, I do, in fact, know a lot about Brain Surgery. So, what do ya want to know?

    Wait....wait....let me guess....

    Right?






















    I know, that was uncalled for.

    You have my sincerest apology !

    No, but I like it so far. I have'nt read Feynmans book on QCD, so I have a lot of reading to do in order to comment inteligently.

    I am a follower, when it comes to who is right and who is wrong. I tend to assume that the accepted theory is correct because I assume that the people that developed it "did their homework" or it wouldnt be "accepted". It's kinda like Darwinism of the theories, if it made it this far, then it has gone through the scientific method and is a legitimetly compelling theory. This is what the difference it between a enthousiest and the guys who "got the goods".

    If I were smart enough to say with any confidence "this is the right idea or not" I wouldnt be a damn HVAC mechanic, I would be working somewhere else that pays me more. I have two sisters in my family that are scientists but I had too many strikes against me growing up that prevented me from following their path.

    This is what I would call The Frozensolid Theory of Anything. (Because anything is possible). An exploration of infinite fractal physics.

    Lets imagine everything in existence, Time, Space, Matter, and Energy occupied what I will call the Volume. The Volume is infinite in size. The volume is filled with an infinite number of entities, with an infinite number of variations. Lets call them Base Energy. Each Base Energy entity emits a field of Space, Time, and the Magnetic force. The infinite number of fields around these infinite number of base energy particles form our universe, or reality as we know it.

    As different combinations of Base Energy entities combine particles of matter are formed. If two infinitely small Base Energy entities combine they would still be invisible to man (Dark Matter). It would take an exponential number of entities to form matter detectable by man. As this matter forms it displaces the remaining Base Energy entities. These entities then exert a pressure on this matter; this pressure is what we call Gravity (an external force).

    Waves are just the ripples left behind as these particles move through Base energy. We define them as wave because we don’t see the particle or the Base Energy. We only see the wake left in their movement.

    Since these particles are infinitely small we can never see them. So like a fractal, the closer we look the more we shall see. We will always discover more, as we look closer and closer. We will never see the beginning of the universe because it is infinite. The farther we look the more we shall see.

    This is a good thing for man, because our need and thirst for knowledge can never be satisfied. An infinite number of particles, with an infinite number of variations, can form an infinite number of combinations. In the infinite volume of the Volume, this makes anything possible.

    E=BEI² or Energy=Base Energy x Infinity Squared.

    Sorry I had a profound revelation.

    It has been allude to that matter will become pure energy once it reaches this speed!! Transporters may be possible in the future.

    The speed of light is limited by the friction of light moving through Base Energy. In my theory it can be exceeded by providing a corridor free of base energy.
