I previously declared that the universe couldn't slow down and reverse itself. Well, I'm flopping here, but not too poorly, I might add. Perhaps when the universe gets too expanded, the controlling forces of the universe bow out to another force which we deem weaker as of now or perhaps don't even know of.
What would happen if we went passed the speed of light? For one thing, we could reach the boundary of the universe. But something larger happens. We cease to exist in the universe or atleast according to the relativistic formula which pops up an infinity, but then again, perhaps not. In electronics, there can be a negative square root, so perhaps imaginary numbers become revisited at and above the speed of light. Then again, ou still have the 1/(c-c) problem that gives you infinity again, only at the speed of light. GEESH! Well, according to current science, time passes you by when you reach C.
As for electrons, they don't see to age at all, but compared to what? To us, stars, universes? I didn't think about the electrons. I don't have an idea for that. Do they age? Do they age slower because they move at the speed of light? Do they move at the speed of light?
As for the Great Hiccup, well it depends if the spacetime contiuum actually physically exists in a sense that there would be a wrinkling effect if there was a compression. I don't know if time would reverse itself if the universe began to shrink. But if the universe shrank, what rate would it shrink at and what would increase the rate?
Many many many questions. Whoops, blue screen of death in my mind.
