in his book Relativity, it seems to me Einstein uses light as the standard of his so call body of refernce. I admit light is the fastest substance we know by now, but we can't use light as the standard. we would never know if there is something faster than, even there isn't, light only has a limited speed, I think must suppose there is something moving in a infinite speed.
