The Illusion
    #2149518 - 12/01/03 03:42 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

The only way to traverse the vast distance of space is to possess the means of manipulating, or altering, the very structure of space itself; altering the space-time geometric matrix, which to us provides the illusion of form and distance. In the blink of an eye we could cross colossal distances; for distance is an illusion. The only thing keeping places apart in space is time. combined excerpts from Anti-gravity Handbook

What about the electromagnetic force... my quantum mechanics book seems to think it has quite a lot to do with things keeping apart.

Hmm...I'm more than interested to hear what your book says about it, do tell!

Hmm, well I wouldn't put it that way, but something close :smirk:

Don't try and talk of space AND time, there is only spacetime. They are one and the same, and it is only our human definition of Time that gives the illusion of separation.

I, too, think that it is possible to traverse vast distances without actually moving in a conventional manner through spacetime.

But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

Not true, the Pioneer and other probes are doing a fine job of transversing space. The "method" that you describe exists only in imagination.

The proof is in the pudding.
