##### Speed along the time axis(?)
« on: 02/04/2014 07:44:05 »
As we move faster in space, we move slower in time and vice verse. It is as if there is a constant energy limit [ a vector of constant length in four dimensions, space-time ] a particle can have. (Visualizing it as a solid rod with one end attached to the center of the coordinate system. We can rotate the rod around and change its projection on each axis, but the total, real length of the rod will stay the same). Is this at least somewhat right?

You start with 4 dimensions then relate the explanation in 3D. Perhaps your explanation reveals itself by 5D. The speed of light is the interface of the fifth dimension.  According to Einstein's theory nothing can exist at the speed of light, let me rephrase that that at the speed of light the object stretches to infinity, let me rephrase that, at the speed of light you enter the fifth dimension and in the fifth dimension you are everywhere and time does not exist.
