The rate of flow of time is a variable. Consider then, if the rate of flow of time is infinite, so is the speed of light.

Anyone care to disprove this?

ummm interesting.I need to think about this some more.I assume your logic is speed = distance divided by time, as time approaches infinite then speed must approach zero.However we are not talking about time but the rate of flow of time. At the moment I can't get my head around what difference that makes. Will think about it tomorrow. Quick thought, I don't believe you can substitute the rate of flow of time for timeMike

Yes, I was right in my last post. If the rate of flow of time is less than infinite then any "block for lack of a better word" [within that flow]has a finite size and can therefore be divided into the arbitrary units we are familiar with as time. Speed remains unchanged the same formula, speed equals distance divided by time still applies. The speed of light is still a constant.Mike

You use the word "rate" without defining it - if you mean the ratio of seconds to pass over some unknown variable - then as this rate goes to infinity then speed will drop to zero. rate is normally reserved as a ratio to time d/dt- so I really don't understand what you can mean by the "rate of time"
