Here is a theory. Moving faster than the speed of light is possible. The speed of light is assumed to be a constant. By which we measure many things.
However it is a theory not necessarily a fact. We cannot disprove it GIVEN OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE LAWS OF PHYSICS AS WE KNOW THEM. The earth is flat
- oh no wait, the universe revolves around the earth - oh no wait, there is no life on other planets - oh no wait there may be bacteria, there is no
water on the moon - oh no wait. So its only relative to our current understanding of speed. Remember the light is only used as a constant because its
speed is (according to our current knowledge) constant. But we can slow it down, split it, trap it and focus it. Until someone did it, it was
impossible. So I wont pin my hopes on it being NOT POSSIBLE just yet. With regard to the sound being constant instead of peaking and dropping off, I
would say ok. Unless its moving toward us, facing at us using a dish of some sort. Then I think he signal would remain constant. As for it moving
position away from the blast, I would say this. If our world blew up, we would move away from it too, under our own steam or through force of blast.
What we should do is see where it goes. Because if we were able to get away in time, we would try and go where we knew we had the best chance of
survival. Like any living thing. If it is intelligent life and not some astral new event we have never seen before - where it ends up will be in its
terms, the next best thing to home it can find. Or maybe, where lots of other are. If its a astral event we have never seen before - I would suggest
the blast is moving it away, the signal could just be on a time scale we have not seen before. So we will have our usual peak, the fading off, but
spread over a larger time scale than usual. And what could cause a delay, something with great mass able to distort the normal rules, like something
we have not yet seen, like another black hole. Just a thought. Oh if its intelligent, maybe its moving toward us, but not to where we are but where we
are going to be as we move through space.
