Either you work with this planet, or you don't. So far 'don't' seem to be the preferred way of looking at it, Terra forming instead of adapting. killing instead of letting live.

In that case, good riddance to us all.

It's not as if this kind of society always have been the answer to living. There have been several other solutions, not too far away in time, but this was the one fitting our basest instincts. The same way some people think 'the survival of the fittest' (aka 'vulgar Darwinism' as a friend of mine used to express it) should mean kill or be killed. Stupidity Galore.

Ethics, does it exist?
If it does, does it matter from where you presume it coming?

Why not live by it?

The world is more than just matter. It's imagination, dreams and hopes.
And love, of or on course :)

sex?
Both ::))

I know, this physics thread has gone of the tracks.

Never thy mind, it's all part of life.
F**ng life as I use to call it, when it hits me in the face.

Still life though :)

So yeah. I had a good time today, through persistence, and knowing it would become good.
Got three friends together, that's me, a mirror, and a parrot.
No, not a parrot.

Me, and two other guys, none to perfect.

But we did have a good time, and it's weird.
Took me a long time to find them.
I hope you will too.

They are out there, be persistent.

And what do I think that means?
:)

Life, it's me.
When I die it will be gone, but in the mean time I do need a good laugh
Now and then :)

Btw  So do you.
persistence.

And no. if all you need is a mirror, I suspect you're better of not being born.

Life seems more a case of broken mirrors to me.
Then again, truth hurts.

then again, if you can laugh about it?

although, it started in disaster.
My trailer died on me, having goods worth ???
Going to boats, going to the islands :)

The tow truck had to tow me to them :)
So what?

When young it really would have 'hit me', and it did, in some strange way, this time too.
But now a days I work in a cool company, where all want to fix it, as good as we can. And actually trust each other to try the same. And it works, in some ways it's like magic?

But it works.

Although. I'm on good terms still with them, personally. It's just all those people, and their expectations.
Broken mirrors :) all of them.

The real point might be that I'm not anyones 'personal guru'. And yep, I'm driving a trailer. I would prefer it to be using something else than what it does, but I'm still in luv with the way of living it presents. I live, love, laugh and cry, the same as you. It's a system error, Global warming, not a thing of my choice. That's also what we prefer not to face, blaming it on a lot of other things, except what really counts.  This time it will cost us, not me, but my kids, and their kids. In the mean time I won't stop driving, because if I would, your food would be gone, unless? You own a farm, and diversify.

Would you agree to that this universe is strange?

Think about it, it contracts with speed, but as far as I see it can't 'disappear' as long as we discuss something of matter. Does light have a mass? A black hole is a anomaly, a enigma. It's not too difficult to see why some people think it 'opens' to some other 'place' as it breaks 'c', the way I think of it then. What will the ultimate 'speed' of 'unobtanium' be :) as it passes through for example. 'c' seems to relate to most everything I can think of. 'c' is where that light quanta is, the 'energy' that also 'pushes' on you ever so slightly. So, does light have a mass?

You can't 'slow' 'c'. You can though, relative some observer(s), red or blue shift it, which then becomes a equivalence to either 'slowing it' or 'speeding it'. But 'c' is 'c'.
=

actually you can do both, although you might find it hard to agree on simultaneity.

'c' is as far as I can see a strictly local description. That means that although each one of us can do a equivalent measurement of its speed, finding it to be 'c', we might not agree on its 'energy', neither on simultaneity of observations.

Time is 'c', locally measured.

Now, 'slowing light' or 'stopping light' isn't about 'c'. It's about creating a situation in where you can constrict and keep 'energy', that then after its constriction may leave as a light quanta. As it propagate it will have 'c'. So a 'field' seems to cover a lot of this, but then we meet another question. In what way does it 'propagate'? Think of a field as a plane of dots, then use local time to exchange them. Then think of someone immersed in that plane, to that 'person' things will 'move' inside the plane. Presuming there to be a observable logic that is :) it then might be so that you would define something of a same character moving from, or to, you.

What you need is rules. And 'c' seems to work pretty nicely for that. So what happens if 'c', or its 'equivalences' is surpassed? Can it be surpassed?

Time is a dimension, that is what this states. A tangible all to real dimension, equivalent to a local measurement of 'c'.

Now think of gravity, a 'perfect sphere' in some 'deep space'. What way will that gravity point, assume it not to spin. Also about information, isn't it?

The definition of a spin must always be relative something else. Expressed as information it then states that you must have a exchange of information for a spin to exist.
