**Igor! I\'ve got it Igor! Light Speed is possible!!!**

hey folks,

I was just pondering as I usually do. Today I was pondering an object's mass relative to an observer.

Then I realized something...

Mass, RELATIVE to an OBSERVER!!!!!

that's right! m=m0(sqrt(1-(v^2/c^2))) is in fact an equation showing the mass of an object RELATIVE to that same object's observer.

That means that at the points in space which are the domain of the object itself do not experience a change in mass... the passengers on the object will not notice a change in the object's mass as they accelerate. They will however, experience a change in the masses of the objects around them, like whatever object the observer is standing on.

Not only will the mass of the object in observation remain the same from the perspective of its passengers, but the ENERGY that object is spending in order to accelerate HAS A GREATER MASS RELATIVE TO THE OBSERVER.

Thus, in order to accelerate an object to light speed, one must spend an amount of energy proportional to the mass of the object being accelerated.

Our observer will watch the object spend an "infinite" amount of energy and then completely dissappear until it slows down to sub-light speed again.

If the same object began to move faster than light, then it would suddenly reappear somewhere else in the universe and begin to look like it was coming back from that place until it reached the point where it accelerated to light speed and become eterally frozen in time, moving relative to everything else at light speed.

Some may argue that it is impossible to use up an object's entire mass in acceleration, however, if one considers for a moment, the possibility of harnessing the power of a singularity for use in powering a space craft, it becomes entirely possible to accelerate to speeds equal to or even beyond the speed of light.

So now we know how to smash through the light barrier, which will open possibilities to time travel.
