C was for a time thought to be the distribution of dark matter. Has that changed? As you approach light speed, matter approaches infinite length and mass. Existing as light? I can see breaking a record of a person into energy. But how would photons, and other forms of energy, maintain self awareness? What would enabled a group of photons to guide themselves? If a group of self aware photons were bombarded by a solar wind or a gamma burst, game over.

All Possibilities . Man is not Intelligent enough Yet to Confirm or Deny any of those scenarios .

Although I think personally it isn't that difficult to go beyond lightspeed. Remember there is still no Theory of everything.
you do understand that your response is pure theory.... but why use an oldfashion warpfield ?
Who ever said no water / ice on mars?
The ship itself could be the intelligent machine?
Its a property of matter that it cannot travel the speed of light. Remember, as matter approaches the speed of light it approaches infinite mass. As you go faster, the more massive you become. In other words, for matter to travel the speed of light would require infinite acceleration.

Sthg I heard, but not mentioned anywhere on the web. Anecdotal.
So tell us how to turn off and on the property of mass........
If mass is an immutable property, than I guess gravity would also be an immutable property.
Again, why ignore warp theory?
Didn't the original observations of mars theorize the existence of water canals?
Venues clouds create a magnetic field that protects its atmosphere.
Just because he exaggerates doesn't mean he's purposefully lying.
..... the accounts of Greek mythology looking for aliens. It's interesting.
When Mariner 9 became the first craft to orbit another planet in 1971, the photographs it returned of dry river beds and canyons seemed to indicate that water had once existed on the Martian surface. Images from the Viking orbiters only strengthened the idea that many of the landforms may have been created by running water. Data from the Viking landers pointed to the presence of water beneath the surface, but the experiments were deemed inconclusive.
For a time in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was erroneously believed that there were canals on Mars. These were a network of long straight lines in the equatorial regions from 60° N. to 60° S. Lat. on the planet Mars. They were first described by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli during the opposition of 1877, and confirmed by later observers. Schiaparelli called these canali, which was translated into English as "canals

Observing canals on mars was not a facilitated hoax
I have been watching and drawing the surface of Mars. It is wonderfully full of detail. There is certainly no question about there being mountains and plateaus. To save my soul I can't believe in the canals as Schiaparelli draws them. I see details where he has drawn none. I see details where some of his canals are, but they are not straight lines at all. When best seen these details are very irregular and broken up ... I verily believe ... that the canals ... are a fallacy and that they will so be proved before many favorable oppositions are past. Barnard's skeptical stance represented the majority position of professionals throughout the period of the canal debate. Yet, enough reputable astronomers did verify Schiaparelli's canali to keep the controversy alive. Moreover, such was Schiaparelli's reputation as a skilled observer that, even among opponents, his claims concerning the mysterious lines were treated with respect and Mars became the subject of intense scrutiny at the world's leading observatories.
It takes one wacky show or researcher to lull a whole generation into sleep... (well anyway thats my opinion)
Or just one to shake the grounds and wake them up. Depends, probably goes back to the optimist/pessimist question.
