Kronos and Cocker--
Yes, your ref on the above is David Sereda and the NASA footage vid, "Evidence". Dave does go into Quantum Theory with his "Galaxy Clock", and
with Bum's initial post regards "Gravity faster than Light".
Just for what it may be worth, the 2 Schools of Physics, Particle Physics and Quantum Physics, represent 2 different schools of thought, and so, 2
different methods, of looking at the same things--the Universe and the world of the very small.
What we know for a fact is that the TOR, (Einstein's Theory of Relativity) "breaks down" in certain cases and times, and fails to explain more than
a few observed phenomena. For example, the behavior of 2 discrete Particles, the mu Meson, and the Neutrino and on occasion a third; energized
In the case of the accelerated Photons, there have been several instances where, when a Photon beam was fired at a target in a cyclotron; in this case
a Quartz one, (the substance of the windows in spacecraft); a percentage of the Photons passed through the Quartz target at 1.7 times the speed of
Both mu Mesons and Neutrinos have the peculiar property of passing directly through a target without damaging it in any way, though each can be
detected as having passed through the target. This behavior is extremely peculiar, and these are the only particles that display it in a repeatable
fashion, experiment to experiment. In the case of the mu Meson, it is both theorized and observed that the particle literally vanishes
side of the target and reappears on the other!
In the case of the Neutrino, these are Particles--basically nuclei stripped of electrons, that are ejected by Stars when they go Nova. Neutrinos are
also ejected along with light and other particles in a fusion explosion, such as the H-Bomb, which fuses Hydrogen to Helium. It has been discovered
that a Neutrino will "leave a trace", in the form of a streak of light from an excited Photon, if it passes through water containing a high
concentration of Deuterium; H3O, or Heavy Water. We have such Neutrino Detectors, and they are incredible huge. The one I know of in the US is under
the Great Lakes in an old salt mine which has been flooded with Heavy Water. The detector array itself is a matrix of photosensitive electronics, and
there is no light 1000' down to fool them.
What makes the above important is Supernova 1987A, which occurred in the Magellanic Cloud and was captured in real time as it occurred
Astronomer in Australia. After the fact, it was determined that some 6 hours before the Star was seen to explode, a "flap" of Neutrinos was detected
at the Great Lakes site. Since we know that these particles are released at the time of a fusion detonation, along with the light of it, X-rays, Gamma
rays, etc., then the question arises, "How is it that the Neutrinos from 1987A reached Earth 6 hours in advance of the observed explosion?". Did
they exceed the speed of light? The answer is still out there, we don't know after 20 years of studying it.
That we don't have a lot of answers to the questions of the Universe and the behavior of Matter, makes the subject and the object of Physics an
extremely interesting subject, and a wide open one to new Theory. Theory is what we have now, and precious few Facts. The major of all the puzzles is
that we don't know exactly what constitutes "Matter" or "Energy, meaning that we really don't know what either is, but we do understand a little
about how Matter and Energy behave. What is certain is that there exists a hazy and illusive point where Matter (particles) become Energy and visa
versa. This is the Zero Point.
