FTL relativity continued

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.



Completed first draft of third novel

Greetings to all who come across these words,
I have finished the first draft of my third novel “i factor”
The idea for this book arose from my attempt to visualize what the relativity equation predicts occurs to time, space and density of objects moving at super luminal speeds.
It is commonly understood that as an object, such as a star ship, approaches the speed of light, its length shrinks, its mass increases and time on the object, or vessel, slows down. At light speed the object reaches 0 width, infinite density and time for the object stops. It is therefore impossible to go any faster as it would require an object that is trapped in time to burn an infinite amount of fuel to go any faster.
That is the easy to understand part, if we ignore the light speed barrier and assume an object, or star ship, is traveling at twice the speed of light the numbers get interesting, they turn into negative square routs. At twice the speed of light length, density and time are multiplied by the square rout of negative 3. or 3i. This means the number is ‘imaginary”. If you square the multiplication factor, then it becomes negative three. Distance inverts, mass becomes negative, and time travels backward.
Working on the theory that between the light speed barrier, where time slows down, and speed of light squared where it moves backward there is a region of velocities where it does both, simultaneously. I tried to figure out what space shrinking and inverting, mass increasing and becoming negative, and time moving simultaneously forward and backward would be like.
Got a headache yet?
Imagine what it would be like to experience the two years it would take to reach the nearest star. It would take the ship two years, the passengers would experience two years of past, two years of future in a dense and anti dense world with increased and inverted length, in less than a microsecond. It would completely obliterate a human mind.
From there the story evolved.

Thoughts on alien life.

About Alien Life- my thoughts- part 1


The evolution of life follows certain principles.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
