I had a hard time deciding whether to post this in the conspiracy or science forum due to the duality of it... I hope I chose wisely.
Is anybody else interested in the topic of superluminal transmission? I became familiar with the concept when I saw an old episode of "Unexplained
Mysteries" which told the story of Phillip 'Taylor' Kramer; a former rock star bassist from Iron Butterfly who also happened to be a rocket
scientist with a genius IQ.
He was the son of a respected mathmetician, and his father initially planted the idea of transmitting data faster than the speed of light in
Phillip's head. Late in life, he picked up on his father's work and claimed to be nearing a breakthrough. Problem was, he was also exhibiting some
signs of a mental illness, erratic behavior etc... He believed he was being watched, followed... He told his family what to do if he should ever
One day, he went to the airport to pick up a friend, but never made it to the rendezvous. Disappeared into thin air.
For several years, people speculated about what had happened. He was a rocket scientist who had worked on Reagan's MX Missile and he had worked on
the Space Shuttle Program, so conspiracy theories abounded about the CIA abducting him, etc... But the most popular theory was that he was killed due
to the value of his technological innovation -- superluminal transmission.
Years later, they found Kramer's mini-van at the bottom of a ravine, just off a deserted stretch of highway in California.
So, I guess the question is... is Superluminal Transmission possible? And if so, how would it change the world we live in? And is anybody else amazed
by that fine line between Genius and Lunacy?
