: : : : : 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.

: : : matter is a result of energy, not the reverse. If matter emits energy then that is because energy was matter's original father. As to the greater the mass, the greater its ability to reach light speed: mass will lessen the closer it approaches the speed of light, if that mass is in a state of transformation; and if that mass ever reaches light speed then its mass is relative to its speed; and if light ever loses it weight then it has changed into something faster.

if heaven is 4-d where there is infinate gravity, as opposed to our zero-g space, does this mean that light here is "thicker" than it is in heaven? perhaps then we could look forward and see ouselves from behind, but then again we could not be made of matter in infinate-g, plus there's that extra direction of 4-d
