I just had a thought when I mentioned in the Moron Award 186,000 light years per second....just how important Speed is to size!
It's like on the tip of my tongue, exactly what I want to say, but to sum it up...picture how large a galaxy is...now picture how large it is if you
could travel across it in 1 second?
We all figure this, but I wonder if the speed one can travel, has more effect on the actual physical size of things, than we give credit for.
Instead of Speed being only a relative issue, with the faster you can travel the more distance you cover
To being, the faster you can travel, the larger things actually are, compared to a previously slower speed.
To the faster traveled thing, things seem to be smaller, but...well how big would a galaxy be if light could travel 186,000,000 miles a second?
Billions of miles a second?
Bah this is just a ramble, but I can't bare to delete it....read it, think about it, wonder!!!!!
maybe in the future I'll figure out exactly what brief flash of thought I had, but can't re-obtain....
