      james,

      this is getting a bit over my head ... i just dont like the
      idea of absolute ... it implies that we would never be able
      to explore much beyond the closest stars and certainly not
      to major galaxies like Andromeda ...

      have fun ...

      well, absolute in the sense that whichever is your frame of
      reference, you
      always measure the speed of light as c, and not some c-v or
      c+v, assuming
      your own frame of reference is moving at v. this doesn't
      mean it doesn't
      allow for c to change speed as it moves in a medium.
