An object without zero rest mass gains infinite mass and requires infinite energy to move while travelling at the speed of light, yet light travels at the speed it does even off a small battery. Light speed isn't infinite, so why would an object gain infinite mass and require infinite energy to reach such speeds?
When you go very fast you contract that jello, the shape of it change, but it has a limit. That limit is lights speed in a vacuum.
I wonder how the editors justify their wages ?
Oh, that's one I can answer!You'll find the AUP here http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=8535.msg99453#msg99453Pay particular attention to Bullet 5."The site is not for evangelising your own pet theory. It is perfectly acceptable that you should post your own theory up for discussion, but if all you want to do is promote your own idea and are not inviting critical debate about it, then that will not be acceptable.
My legitimate, though admittedly heretical, scientific argument has been censored. I'm having difficulty finding the site's terms of service; I'd like to know, what specific rule did I violate? Is it standard practice, here, to censor views which challenge the scientific establishment? Do you censor everyone who dares to challenge Big Bang or claims that the universe is infinite? Would you have censored Einstein before his theories were widely accepted?
Not yet. Ironically, I was not responsible for shrinking Phractality's post!
A question for the community: Would I be out of line, in the future, if I post a note on mainstream discussions, saying something like, "My own pet theory (model, actually) has an answer to the question under discussion in this thread." Naturally, I would only post such a message where it is appropriate. Would that be considered "evangelizing"?
Let's not forget that when "you go very fast", you are going very fast relative to something; which means that you are probably going "very slowly" relative to something else. This must mean that the vast amount of energy you are using, relative to the first thing, you are not using, relative to the second thing.
