Sooooooo I'm back. Again. And why not celebrate this by starting a new thread. Like I usually do. *ahem*
I like science. Very much. 'Tis my passion! And I couldn't really find/be arsed to look for the Stonemaker Argument thread, which is kinda science-y - so I made my own science thread (and included a poll because ... I like doin' that too!).
In addition, I've been pondering about something for a few days now, and I intend to use those thoughts as a starter for this thread. Anyway, here we go!
---------- *WARNING: EXTREME NERDYNESS AFTER THIS LINE!* -----------
As mentioned in the Stonemaker Argument about Sam the Photon, the photons are travelling at light-speed, and as time is relative to speed, shouldn't they therefore be timeless, experiencing millions and millions of years in zero seconds?
Now comes the pondering: If that is the case, is light-speed what we experience, or what they experience?
And if it is what we experience, isn't the speed of light just the speed as we see it, due to our own speed?
And if you see many years instantly at light-speed, if you then found the absolute zero regarding speed, would you be timeless the other way round? Experiencing zero seconds in millions and millions of years? Or would the ramifications (spelling please?) of absolute zero speed be even more out of our imagining?
That was all for now, and something to think about ... I hope.
--------------------- *Extreme nerdyness ends here.* -------------------------
tl;dr: Guess you don't like science after all.
edit: Removal of Sam the Photon quotes and correction of the theory, which was portrayed wrongly.
