Default Re: The electric universe

oh btw!

He has a pretty good point, as you all may know we tend to say that nothing can go faster than light, this seems to be pretty wrong.

Gravity travels much much faster than light. In fact if it dident the earth would not be caught by the sun. Noone has ever said this, and i find it to be true. Hence if the earth dident know where the sun was every microsecond, we would simply just be drifting out of orbit.

This implements to all the planets around us. The light takes 8.30min to travel from the sun to earth, gravity does it in 00000000.1sec So, there you have it. Lightspeed is in intersellar terms pretty damn slow.
