• Question: Do YOU think that one day we will be able to create a mode of transport that can get us from A to B quicker than the speed of light??

      Love this question and myself I always ask that question … Telepathy is very interesting but regarding faster than the speed of light … I have to say not confident to say yes since it is the fastest thing we deal with now although many people try to prove that there is something faster than that out there 🙂

      We need to understand human biology and cell chemistry and physical laws to see if we can transfer an object from one point to another in speed of light ..But why not and I will say yes for same rate as speed of light!!! 😉

      I think it’s very unlikely. Einstein’s theory of relativity works really really well and it makes a lot of sense that we can never reach the speed of light. There could be some strange thing where we use a wormhole to distort space itself to speed up getting from A to B though 🙂

      I don’t think we can get around this thing about not going faster than the speed of light. There is a thing called “quantum tunnelling” though where small “particles” can go from A to B without ever being anywhere in between so maybe that is a starting point.

      Sometimes I’d like to go faster than the speed of light to get everything done……but maybe I should just slow down 🙂
