Sorry for the late response, but I'm still digesting your post Smile | :)

One of the central tenants of my idea is not to find examples of light deviating from it's set speed but to answer why does it always want move at that speed.
If I learnt anything from programming is that all constants*) are variables. If C holds, then faster-than-light travelling would equal time-travelling.

Foothill wrote:
It implies that mass is irrelevant on only energy and C matter. More to the point, since energy is in a constant state of acceleration, the mass of a particle is a direct result of energy shedding velocity due to the C. The caveat is that if we could figure out what the universal principal is that causes all energy to shed velocity to make mass, we could figure out how to negate it, thus making faster-than-light travel possible.
Shedding velocity, or lacking velocity? And if you can vary the C, does that make faster-than-light travelling possible, or does it change the point at which energy 'solidifies' into mass?

I may be off my marks but I've asked several physicists about this without a straight answer; even emails to NASA and FermiLab got me nowhere.
I'm just a programmer, never been to a university. From what I know, if some professional can give you a good explanation, they're usually rather fond of giving it. This forum is built on that premise Smile | :)

It's the same exact model they have now just a different way of looking at it.
Doesn't mass come from the God-particle? I remember some 'yo mama so fat' yokes about it Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

Never did get anywhere with it so far. The only nice thing is that it offers an explanation for electron quantum jumping. I've got theories on gravity too but I can never get any help from physicists on that one either. Not even a suggestion on where to start.
Not a suggestion, but a request - jot it all down. Notes are better than nothing (which means loosing the train of thought), and notes become scripts after some time. First thing to do with an idea is to capture it on paper, so it can be transmitted and multiplied.

If you can explain it in simpeler terms than academic speech then you'd have me as additional audience, and I'm pretty sure there are more people interested in the subject.

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
