Greece And The Speed Of Light

Once upon a time, long long ago, it was common knowledge that the stars, planets, sun and moon revolved around the earth. The smart money knew that Greece was the center of the universe and all radiated out from there. We didn’t know about all the hundreds of billions of galaxies back then, and their hundreds of billions of stars. Making the reasonable assumption that there are huge numbers of civilizations all through the universe, we can pretty much bet that they don’t give a rat’s ass about Greece.

Albert Einstein, regarded by all as a real smart fellow, told us a lot about light, its various properties and how impossible it would be for us to reach its speed. It’s a barrier we can’t reach, much less cross. And the creatures on the other side don’t give a rat’s ass.

Huh? Creatures on the other side of the speed of light?

Since you can’t prove me wrong, I will state here that I think there is a civilization on the other side of the speed of light. When you break through the light barrier (in some way similar to breaking the sound barrier), you will see stuff that exists in a different kind of light. Maybe it’s old light, and we see things that happened some time in the past. As we wander around in this “beyond the speed of light” world, we can examine our grandparents when they were kids, we can see the Mayflower crossing the ocean, or be present as the Titanic goes down. Even back further.

It’s The History Channel without commercials.
