my theory has applications.
like locating the position of Israel or i suppose any other state that I might decide to target.
i could also determine the position of the roman emperor and target him/her if I decided that it was necessary.
time will tell who's technique is of greater value.
By the time we reach 90% of the speed of light, for each day on board, two and a quarter days pass for an observer stationary with the respect to the Lattice. As we start tacking on nines to our velocity, time dilation becomes ever more extreme. At 0.999999 of the speed of light, almost two years pass in the Lattice for every ship's day. If we continue to accelerate to 0.99999999999999 c, for every day on board, nearly twenty thousand years pass for the observer at rest.
