Was it Just a Guess?
The story about the faster-than-light neutrino experiment conducted by CERN physicists is starting to really get under my skin. What this fiasco really shows is that physicists do not really know what they're talking about. They need to answer the following questions:
- Is there a speed limit, yes or no?
- If yes, why?
- If no, why not?
- If yes, why is c the limit?
Obviously, physicists are either not sure or they don't really understand why there is a speed limit in Einstein's relativity. Or maybe Einstein did not provide a good enough explanation to convince them one way or another. Was it just a guess all along with no actual understanding as to why? It sure seems that way, doesn't it? Otherwise, this neutrino experiment would never have made the news. Physicists would know that it was either a mistake or it wasn't. Why all the fuss?
From my vantage point, there is no question that physicists don't really understand motion. If you ask any physicist to explain why a body in inertial motion remains in motion, you'll come face to face with abject ignorance if not outright superstition. Is this what we pay our physicists for? Ignorance? Aren't they supposed to understand these things? Their ignorance is deep and in your face and yet, they feel free to conjure up all sorts of Star Trek voodoo physics whenever they feel like it; what with time travel, parallel universes, wormholes, cats that are both dead and alive and all that other nonsense?
The Truth about Motion
Now, if the CERN neutrino physicists really understood motion, they would know that, not only is c the fastest possible speed in the universe, it is also the slowest possible speed. Nothing can move faster or slower than c. It is the only possible speed. Why? Because the universe is discrete. Read Physics: The Problem with Motion if you're interested in having a real understanding of motion. You don't understand motion even if you think you do.
