[JW] Here I would like to express my usual logical thinking. The writer of
this article is missing something... everything that crosses a certain
distance takes time. The faster this distance is crossed, the less time it
takes. If light usually takes 1 second to cover that distance, now with that
speed enhancement it will only take 1/300th second. So, the faster the speed
of light will be, the closer you will get to point 0 (0,000000~~~0 seconds),
but you will NEVER reach that full zero second mark. What you will see if
you travel at 300 times the speed of light is the light that once passed
you... so, you will in essence see a "fast-forward" movie running through
the past (light that is coming from the point of destination) towards the
present (the present is the time/light at point of destination). There is no
time-travel, I explained that once in an article I wrote for pufori.
