    i doubt they'd ever be able to achieve that within our lifetime. they haven't even reached the speed of light yet (which, theoretically, is impossible for humans, but we'll see).

    quantum physics is interesting stuff, we had an introduction unit to that in gr.12 physics... it's like, they teach us all this newtonian physics, and the last chapter pretty much goes like "what you just learnt isn't always right, sorry lol"

    ^I'm looking forward to learning that bit then. Sounds like interesting stuff. My understanding of quantum physics extends to what I learned in Michael Chrichtom books and the quantum mechanics chap in my chem class.

    It doesnt matter if the he can see himself preparing to get to the destinatation after reaching the destination . It doesnt mean that he got there before starting. If that were true then the entire world as it is now was created at the birth of the universe beacuse we can see it in the farthest reaches of the universe
    Whoops! Sorry about the whole sound light thing and I guess it dose make sense that we'd take those little problems into account...

    That's why I keep my hopes up that instead of discovering faster than light travel they discover a way to keep people alive for long periods of time (cryogenics and the like).


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I was watching the science channel and they proved that aging actually is a disease. There are ways to permanently keep the test subject (flies and rats in this case) in their physical prime for up to four times their natural lifespan. Better yet I think this stuff might be available in our lifetime although I know it'll be gobbled up by corporations and then produced as a commodity for the rich...

    Intresting. Four times a human life span would be close to 400 years (well not in America with all us fat people...) but the idea of living that long makes me a bit uneasy...

    Lets say (by some mirical) someone falls in love (true love the kind I doubt exists) and both people should live 400 years because of this scientific discovery. Then when thier about 200, one of them die. The thought of the other person's feeling makes me sick. For 200 more years he/she has to luive loveless...

    Ouch...

    You should recheck the average human life span.

    yeah. if people live longer. they'll have more time inventing new stuff.

    but I think I'll end up spending those extra time having fun rather than contributing anything to humanity (as if I'm contributing anything now )
