See discussion on iFactor for background
If time and space gain an i factor or in fact become mathematically imaginary. (gaining a negative square route factor) I will from this point on refer to it as imaginary space or iSpace. Such conditions apply where speeds exist between the ranges of just over light speed and light speed squared ( where time and space become negative).
Since time, space and mass in iSpace are simultaneously increased and inverted (Positive and negative in equal proportion) they would cancel each other out as viewed by the outside observer, and thus still appear as Einstein described them.
Since objects pulled into a black hole are being pulled an external force, then if might be possible for such an object to exceed light speed. Such an object would appear forever trapped at the advent horizon, but would in fact be subject to iSpace relativity. The same might also hold true for Tachyons( Unless they travel at light speed squared in which case they might be subject to negative relativistic effects such as negative mass, length and reverse movement through time.
Just a thought.
Until next time.
About Alien Life- my thoughts- part 1
The evolution of life follows certain principles.
- Life cannot evolve in a way that makes it unable to survive in its environment. Any such specimen would die out before having a change to reproduce. If they do manage to survive, they could not thrive. Therefore, all creatures are shaped by their environment. Example: Photo feeding autotrophic creatures would do very well on a planet with a lot of sunlight, but could not survive on a world with no sunlight, or on the dark side of a world that is tidally locked.
- Evolution is the product of mutational accidents. Good accidents make a species more able to survive and the creatures thrive. Bad mutations make a species less able to survive and they die off or fail to thrive. The key here is that mutations are random accidents. It is therefore not only possible, but likely that two identical planets would produce wildly different life forms.
- For these reasons, I do not believe that alien life will be humanoid, and may not have any recognizable “terran” features at all. They may not have; eyes, ears, antennae, tentacles, arms, legs, hands, etc. The will have adapted structures that serve the same function within the constraints of the world they evolved on.
To be continued.
Please give me your thoughts.
I started this blog as a sounding board for ideas. I will use it to develop ideas, share important scientific developments, and most likely just to rant upon occasion. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
