No Time Travel For You!

Hong Kong scientists say they've got it all figured out. Nothing travels faster than light therefore there is no time travel (leaving aside the normal travel through time of one second per second, I suppose). This is a bit of a bummer. I'm so far behind on some of my writing projects that I was hoping to build a time machine this weekend to see if I could catch-up. You know. Just a basic model, nothing fancy.

But seriously, the comments on the article I linked to are priceless. Some of the people seem to know less about relativity and, hell, even about sun dials and such than a cocker spaniel might. I swear. One guy seemed to really think that flux capacitors and a Delorean were a solution to the problem...

Not that I know how to reach into the future or the past myself, mind.

It's a bit silly for us, who live in Rhode Island with some of the most beautiful beaches to go to Montauk with more of the most beautiful beaches for a holiday.

I don't ever use the word "time" anymore in my life. Time is just a title for how man measures change. And for us boots on the ground who are working on transcendence, I say that time is merely an oppurtunity for change.

I do believe people will discover ways to travel faster than light. We sure need time travel, for life is too short and time allways runs out.
