here's something really stupid I thought of..
likely when drunk, on Saturday night.. just after our gig..
dunno how many of you, are aware of a little quirk of Einstein's Theory of Relativity..
about all the weird shit you get, when you approach the speed of light..
if you're not familiar with it..
the claim is, the closer you approach the speed of light, the slower time passes for you..
so, say you went on a little space-trip.. near the speed of light..
and you were gone for wot seems to you, to be only 4 years..
when you return, it'd end up being 4000 years or somethin'..
coz, for you.. time travels more slowly.. and thus, 4000 years, would only feel like 4..
so, the way my silly brain thinks..
wot would happen if you travelled near to the speed of light.. but, just spinning..
running little cm diameter circles.. so.. it's like you're not even moving..
fuckit.. wot if you were vibrating at near the speed of light..
would that mean, you could create the means.. to not actually age.. for, like millennia?
but, for all outside observers.. you'd appear ageless?
and.. whoa.. think about it.. if you moved FAST enough, in little circles.. it'd almost be like time travel..
a day would pass for you.. but, outside world.. it'd be a year or so..
how trippy would THAT be?
and.. wot would happen, if.. you were moving close to the speed of light,
and you passed another object moving close to the speed of light..
wouldn't the relative speed.. between the 2 objects racing towards each other.. exceed the speed of light?
and isn't that meant to be theoretically impossible?
just a thought..
