I was wondering why you guys post here? Aren't these boards ungodly slow? Wouldn't it be easier for you to just go to an actual forum for space discussion? Why wait so long for a reply from some drug addict about stars or whatever when you can probably get better information more quickly from somewhere else?

Not judging, just genuinely curious

nope, space is currently expanding very fast. and astronomically soon at a rate faster than the speed of light

Oh no, dude. What are we gonna do,.???? We're all gonna go faster than light and then phase out if this dimensional of reality, man!! FUCK

I'm pretty sure the government, or several governments have this site under watch. Anyone with a brain who posts here gets identified and fucked with in real life, so we all fucked off to fourchan and eightchan where we can talk about anything and everything and just mix in with the crowd.

It's slow as long as humanity is yet to invent near-light-speed travel. If this board was moving near light-speed, the time between posts would be fucking fast relative to us.


Shh it's ok. As long as it is just space expanding, two objects can actually 'move' faster than light relative to each other and no physical laws are broken.

But doesn't speed only exist relative to two objects???

Yep. Humanity and the Grays my man. They are here, they are posting, and they are monitoring this very board.

havent read the thread but i dont thing faster than light travel is possible the way it will be done is not by moving objects but consciousness around space outside time thats why i post here and not in a science forum

Is there really any faster forum than a chance? I mean besides ones filled with terms like "social media"

speed exists in relation to predetermined points on a coordinate system

Space has no inherent coordinate system dude. This is like one of THE realizations of relativism.

yep, very good. now let's break down relativism: that which is relative [to a given frame of reference]; i.e. you make up your own system as an observer, which will be different from every other observer's system. an object in motion in relation to another object in motion can only have a determinate speed (if we are serious about this conversation we should start using the term velocity, actually) within a predetermined system.
