You are intelligent. Makes perfect sense.

Some of you are right...a few of you are using redneck logic. 1. The speed of an electron in a pure environment is relative to the speed of light (though you are correct, it is not exactly the same). 2. Electrons do not behave the same as light waves and light particles. (Some behaviors are similar, though many are not.) 3. It is possible to mathematically go faster than the speed of light, but the calculations can only be achieved through a relative relation and not physically in parallel. 4. Depending on your discipline of physics, time can be constant, or simple a variable quantitative attribute (especially in relation). 5. Also depending on your discipline of physics, if you turned your headlights on while traveling at the speed of light, you would either A: see nothing, or B: see your lights perfectly well (due to the relative nature of particles in motion, particularly at relatavistic speeds). 6. You can spend much longer than 7 minutes waiting to reach the singularity (if you follow that theoretical understanding) of a black hole once achieving the so called "event horizon." 7. You can have variances in time that are not the cause of speed. 8. It is possible to go forwards in time, and come back, without any passage of actual time. 9. It is possible to deal with time directly without distance. __________________ ----------------------------------------------- Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...

First off, please spell Einstein's name correctly with a capital 'E'. We salute genious, not insult it.

Anyway, your comments can go both ways depending on which discipline of physics you follow. Light can either have a mass, or cannot, and both can be supported. Particle light cannot travel at theoretical speeds of light, but lightwaves (packet light) can.

Since the speed of light is the fastest thing we can observe, this is the greatest known speed a particle or wave can achieve physically.

Light may not be able to physically exceed its maximum speed (c) but it can be slowed and even stopped. The ability to slow and/or move light is relatively simple and easily observable. The ability to stop light is by far harder, but possible as well.

If you observe quantum physics, it is easily possible for a light particle to exceed the speed of its originator base (your car headlamp for instance).

EDIT: I have one comment to make regarding what you see in a black hole. Everything that you see would be distorted and twisted. Why? Because as light is being sucked into the singularity, it is warping and stretching. __________________

Some is mine, some is copied... can't take all the credit, now can I?? The theory at the end about the black hole is very interesting to go into. Basically what the person on the ship would see and what the obsever on another ship would see. Alot of people said it would either just disappear or speed to relatavistic speeds. Then there is the above. Sounds more sound a theory to me. __________________ If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. I am not a fast writer.

Until one of us enter a black hole and defy physics by escaping it...

Everything is just a theory!

Image you are with a friend, he is in another ship and gets sucked into a black hole. You are outside the effects so see the whole thing. Now, the way we see things is by light/photons bouncing back. The closer to the black hole you get light begins to slow down. It begins to take longer and longer for those photons to come back to you. At the event horizon, or prior to it, the light is taking longer and longer. So, you could sit there for a very long time, and you are seeing the light return to you at slower speeds. Your friend could of been swallowed thousands (this is a VERY big guess) of years ago, but it took that long to get the light back to you mean while he is long gone. Just a theory, though based off of facts. __________________ __________________ If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. I am not a fast writer.
