Okay taking both of those on together.
Hazy recollections here.
An object being rendered massless by virtue of the fact that it has reached light speed is going to display some pretty unusual properties yes??
With every atom in the universe has an energy based relationship with every other one I cant accept that such a change is not going to have some serious consequence on that relationship.
“Although the outside observer would still see you travelling at 186,000 miles per second”
“Even if an object travels at infinite speed, so that it passes through all points along its trajectory at the same time”
Do you see the problem with those statements when viewed together? I can’t reconcile viewing an object travelling at that velocity with the observers viewpoint.
What “progression” would our observer see. Would not he witness ; for what of a better word : a streak ?
(Composed of the object occupying each point on its path.)
And that is presuming that our object is traveeling in one linear direction. With no time constraights it could also travel in a multitude of other “lines”.
Would our observer not then witness the object taking up space in every part of the universe.
I have a funny feeling I’m missing some small point here to push me over the conceptual leap boundary.
Go on then shove me , just this once.
