Is the speed of causality infinite?
« on: 10/07/2016 10:37:55 »
Is the speed of causality infinite because the speed of sight could be infinite if something could travel faster than c?


If a Photon could travel at an infinite speed then the observer sees at an infinite speed rather than a finite speed? 


added- I have had some more thought in this.



In this example there are 3 observers, yourselves the third person with the third person view, myself the red square and Tom the blue square.

You observe me and Tom ''pinging'' and ''ponging'' between two point sources, me and Tom are both travelling at c,  yourself is relatively equally 8 light minutes away from both point sources, yourselves should be witnessing the causality of the observation instantly and synchronous.

Causality is an abstract concept and doesn't have a speed. The same goes for sight.

I have added some more content.


P.s  Causality by definition is cause and effect, how can you say cause and effect is abstract?
