: : : All matter was created due to a quantum fluctuaion.

: : All matter is is energy condensed into slow vibrations to begin with, so if matter is energy and it takes and infinate amount of energy to reach the speed of light, then it would also take an infinate amount of matter to reach the speed of light. agree?

: : That's not exactly true. Light has mass. If you shine light on a : wall, it will push on the wall. In fact if it did take infinite energy : to reach the speed of light, then I don't believe Einstein's theory would : work.

According to Hawking and others..it is impossible to travel faster than the speed of light...therefore with distances..contact seems unlikely...true/false..could this be God's way keeping man away from man..bad enough on Earth?
