Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light as we know it. However, what if in the altnerate universe nothing can travel slower than the speed of light. I believe this is called the Tachyon universe.

The simple equation to this is represented below.

Change T new = (change T normal ) / Square Root(1 - (v^2/c^2))

c = speed of light
v = velocity
T = time

If the velocity of a particle is travelling faster than the speed of light, would it be possible to enter this tachyon universe?
If there were people living in the Tachyon universe would it really be weird that we are travelling slower than the speed of light, or would they perceive it differently?

I think its perfectly possible to travel faster than light.
Einstein's theories of Relativity are impressive, but they maul with Newton's Laws, which were in place for a good couple of centuries beforehand.

Mankind knows but a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of whats really going on. I studied Physics at college for 2 years and looked into this quite a lot, and although I'm lacking a decent explanation, something about Relativity as I was taught it just doesn't add up at all.

Personally, I think its a load of BS, 'cos the scientists can't think of a way of actually sending something meaningful (I mean say, a spaceship as opposed to a laser) anywhere near the speed of light.

Sorry, based on our(the human popluation as a whole) current understanding of physics there is no way for us to move faster then the speed of light. Countless scientists would tell you the same. The faster we go, the more massive we become. More mass equals more energy is needed for us to keep accelerating. Eventually the energy needed to accelerate shoots off into infinity. I don't see what "doesn't add up" about that.

I'm convinced we won't be able to move faster then the speed of light with our current conception of movement. I think eventually we will be able to get from one place to another faster then light, but it will have nothing to do with movement. Warm holes, teleportation, abusing dark matter.

If you were tavelling at the speed of light in the dark what would happen if you turned on your headlights?

Can you give us the source of this information, it would be helpful to debate further.

And the einsteins relativity theory might not the true case of physics earlier it was thought that the newtons theory was everything in physics and all questions might be solved by deriving the outcomes of it and then einstein had to modify it and used it along with the maxwells equation to create the relativity theory.

There is no end as you say some new theory can come about which will change our perception.

The question is moot since you would have collapsed the universe given that your mass would be infinite.
