I have the delusion that I have relativity figured out. For example how can
two particles be going at the speed of light yet relative to each other be
going at the speed of light? In my little theory it is like the road-runner
escaping the coyote. In this case it is two road-runners running toward
each other with the road piling up in front of them so the distance between
them is not a straight line but a curved line of rumpled asphalt. If the
distance of the curved asphalt is twice the straight line distance between
them they both can be doing the speed of light relative to the asphalt and
relative to each other. The space-time is the asphalt.
So now I set my delusional mind to neutrinos going faster than the speed of
light. I understand that neutrinos fly through the earth unencumbered by
other particles and apparently surpass the speed of light. So perhaps
space-time has friction. Friction is what makes the space-time pile up in
front of the speeding photon. Maybe neutrinos are not affected by friction
or maybe not so much as photons are so maybe E=mc2 is missing a friction
One thing is sure I have proved the statement above. Clearly I know nothing
about quantum mechanics yet claim to understand it.
