Maybe soon mankind can move ahead past the wheel, and fire.
Are you ready for time travel?
Einstein's theory is out to lunch. Well. At least the jury is now out on e=mc^2.
In a vacuum, we believed that no mass could move faster than the speed of light without turning into pure energy, in other words, a catastrophic failure of the object's mass.
But researchers at the CERN lab near Geneva claim they have recorded neutrinos, a type of tiny particle, travelling across some 730km faster than the alleged barrier of 186,282 miles (299,792 kilometers) per second (the speed of light).
A total of 15,000 beams of neutrinos - tiny particles that pervade the cosmos - were fired over a period of three years from CERN towards Gran Sasso 730 (500 miles) km away, where they were picked up by giant detectors.
Light would have covered the distance in around 2.4 thousandths of a second, but the neutrinos took 60 nanoseconds - or 60 billionths of a second - less than light beams would have taken.
Neutrinos are an elementary sub-atomic particle with a tiny amount of mass created in radioactive decay or in nuclear reactions such as those in the Sun. They were first confirmed in 1934, but it still mystify researchers.
Conceivably things like time travel are possible if the speed of light barrier can be broken in certain ways by masses travelling at certain angles or in certain ways or just certain masses, if you follow.
I have often wondered how modern artists replicate on their canvasses art that we later discovered had been created by artists thousands of years ago, as illustrations on the walls of deep caverns archaeologists keep finding. How did those creative thoughts cross such gaps in time. Thought energy seems to have crossed spans in time. It seems that way. It's worth questioning.
I have always mistrusted this mc^2 theory because our knowledge of the universe is so narrow, moreover, mathematicians since Einstein's time have also alluded to the probability of mc^2 (energy is equal to mass times the speed of light squared which essentially means that a very small amount of mass can be converted into a very large amount of energy) being too pat; it conflicts with the theory of entropy; and has consideration of only three dimensional vectors: time, distance and speed. There must be more. We really don't now much about anything.
No other quantums which could exist as "vectors" within angular dimensionscrossing known dimensions were even considered by Einstein's conventional wisdom. Also, in EInstein's time, there was no knowledge of neutrinos and other particles having infinitesimal mass and quasi rule-breaking properties.
Basically what I am saying is that we have been in a "flat-earth-society" type of paradigm that we might be slipping away from.
This new data needs verification. It is promising to be huge breakthrough in physics.
Maybe soon mankind can move ahead past the wheel, and fire. We have been bogged down on blowing shit up (rotted fossils) to turn wheels for far too long. I am stoked.
