  • The Tachyon Hoax

    Most physicists believe that faster-than-light particles cannot exist because they are not consistent with the known laws of physics. Found it all out myself when reading Wikipedia

    You've also got to watch out for nintendos, they pass through anything.
    I am not delusional! Now if you'll excuse me, i'm gonna go dance with the purple wombat who's playing show-tunes in my coffee cup!

      Not so! Special relativity only says you cannot accelerate to >= c. Special relativity also implies that if you want ftl and consistency, you must choose between special relativity and causality.

          Can you rephrase that for us laymen? I assume >=c means nothing can accelerate faster than light, But what is ftl and consistency. Maybe I should read up on special relativity before venturing into this thread.

            Did you know Jack in the Box raised the price on their tacos? It is now $1.29 which is a full $0.30 cents more.

              I wrote a post about this 2 years ago. Most of the explanation comes in the form of pictures.

              There's a saying about this. Pick two: special relativity, FTL, or causality.

              As we've just seen, special relativity + FTL means you lose a coherent narrative leading from the past to the future. You can preserve causality with FTL but only if you abandon the rules of special relativity. Or you can live in the universe we seem to inhabit, which has relativity and causality but loses all that FTL fun.
