Can any1 explain why is speed of light thought to be THE highest speed that can ever be? If we assume that gravitons exist - it becomes clear that their speed is definilely higher than that of the photons. Why? Because when a star collapses into black hole, light can't abandon it, however gravity can.
What were Einstein's explanation why he uses the speed of LIGHT at the highest and uses it in all the formulas?
