    Now there's an alternate meaning for the term "expanded universe"

    It may be the fact my Physics only ever progressed beyond "First Year of University" level, but doesn't that theory require you to give a good kick in the 'Nads to the "Nothing Moves faster than 3X10^8 m/s" rule?

    Well I’m not 100% on this but I think it basically information can’t move fast than light [it’s a subtle difference] and there is also the possibility that while information can’t move fast than light the speed of light it self may not be a constant as was previously believed, it alters with “temperature” of the universe. Like I said I am not 100% sure on that as it’s been a long time since I read my physics books but that was what I understood of it at the time.

    Ah, but 3X10^8 m/s is only the speed of light in a vacuum today. It is entirely possible that during the inflation the speed of light was much faster.

    Damn inflation. I remember when a nickel could buy you a whole galaxy.

    I would have guessed Rosie ODonnell but this makes sense.

    Einstein- "the combined speed of any object's motion through space and its motion through time is always precisely equal to the speed of light."


    So as one approaches the speed of light time slows until the speed of light is acheived and time stops. This is why there isnt any thing faster than light.

    Dunno.

    But Fred Savage is a prick. I had friends at Stanford.

    How's that for random?

    I agree. This makes sense because all of the physics we know today is based solely on our CURRENT understanding of the known universe - how it exists right now.

    While "there isn't anything faster than the speed of light," as Shadowking suggests, the speed of light might be conceptually defined by a different set of physics laws during the Big Bang and the early time period of universal inflation.

    Don't ask me which physics laws those are; I wasn't around back then. ;)

    I was a beta tester. It was pretty rough going.
