I searched in different threads about this argument and found nothing really related to my considerations.
My point is: is it possible that we think light is the fastest thing in Universe only beacause light is the only "tool" we have to see the whole
What struggled me was the fact that we cannot know what is really out there because of restriction of light speed.
Our observation point is like in a bubble, the more we see further in astronomical observation the more we see the past, we don't see what really is
there at the time we are looking at.
This is a limitation due to our way of observe, because it is based on how much time light spend to travel till we can see it.
I found some thred here on ATS about the speed of thought and I have to share an experience I had some years ago.
I was in a chalet with some friends and we were playing card games after a long day. I was really tired and felt aspleep.
I dreamed about a lot of things, I can't properly remember because I didn't wrote them after awekening but I remember it was a very long dream, with
an intricated history, so much intricated that, when I woke up, I immeditely said to my friend, who where still there playing card, that I had a great
They looked at me astonished and said: "You had a dream? you just closed your eyes for ten seconds!".
Now, light travels at 299 792 458 m/s, and in ten seconds travels 2 997 924 km... Earth distance from Sun is nearly 149 597 870 km. So i had the time
to dream a complete story before light coming from Sun reached the Earth!
My dream, in my dream-time, was far way long than 8 minutes, wich is the time light from sun travels before reaching us. Doesn't that means that my
body, projected in my dream, moved faster than light, incredibly faster than light?
If we stop at it we could think that speed of thougts is way way way too faster than light.
But do we know how to describe the concept of speed of thoughts? the speed tells us how much time we need to reach a determined point.
The speed of thougt doesn't let us reach any point, it is likely a parallel kind of speed. And maybe this speed is valuable only in a parallel
Universe, with a completely different structure.
I mean, let imagine a Universe where things are not seeing thanks to light but only by the ability to thought. In this hipotetical Universe nothing
will be faster than speed of thoughts.
We base our observation on light, and speed of light is only reachable by photons. Maybe if thoughts are the way of seeing things nothing would be
faster than thoughts.
If this kind of Universe really exist maybe we too are part of this Universe, because we have the ability to "create" thoughts. The same way the
stars have the ability to "create" light!
Hope you enjoyed this read, I am truly fascinated about how many possibilities OUR Universe offers to think about :-)
