What if Einstein was wrong?

Im sure many of you are aware of this but recently cern found possible evidence that the light barrier is not the true barrier for speed. What does this mean what are its implications? Its certainly something to discuss right? Einstein believed this constant was the one thing that kept the universe from collapsing.

    Sep 28 2011: I personally believe Einstein was wrong. Here is my evidence to support my thought. Einstein himself thought the universe was infinite but he over thought his whole theory. I believe it is really very simple matter that connects the universe and keeps it from collapsing. He limited an infinite universe which is completely illogical. Something cant come from nothing unless everything is nothing and nothing is everything. Only that which is, exists; only truth is exists. Three principles govern all of creation: that which is, that which is not, and that which is nothing. Nothing is the empty vessel which truth fills. It is the very same principal that determines your ability to read my text. The contrast of black and white shows you the text. One cannot exist without the other. People ask which came first the egg or the chicken. The only true answer is they are one in the same. Because, how can one exist without the other True or false? Unicorns do not exist. Horses do but without an empty space of nothing the horse wouldn't exist either. You need three legs to become completely stable this is why 3 leg chairs never wobble or that the triangle is a natural sturdy shape and is used to many high strength tension bridges. Am i on to something? I hope to revolutionize the way people think. Simple things often seem complex until you understand them this is why many people have trouble with mathematics.

      Pleased to see a fellow Carolinian participating in this forum. I bet Pisgah is beautiful right now. As you have grown up in the same culture as I have I am sure you are going to understand there is no malice in my straight talk -

      TruthContest.com is NOT an example of educated analysis. It does NOT contain any evidence to back up it's claims. It's contributors are NOT on the same level as those of us on TED and it is certainly NOT the TRUTH. From a quick reading of several posts on there and your profile and comments here, I am pretty certain the ideas contain an amalgamation of Coral Castle Code, an over-projection of an incomplete understanding of esoteric thought and a lot of pot-induced babble. You are going to have to find a more intelligent guru than a rag-tag assembly of college kids if you are looking to find ULTIMATE TRUTH. (which may or may not exist)

      I do not see where you present any 'evidence' for your 'theory.' Nor am I entirely certain what your theory ultimately entails -

      "Something cant come from nothing unless everything is nothing and nothing is everything. Only that which is, exists; only truth is exists. Three principles govern all of creation: that which is, that which is not, and that which is nothing. Nothing is the empty vessel which truth fills."

      And....? At least Einstein gave us a scientific theory and not a metaphysical one. In what practical ways would your 'theory' change the way someone looks at the world?

        Sep 28 2011: I can see where you come from but if you do not read the whole book you have no clout in a debate about it. I recommend you read it ALL. You can see the theme everywhere; in all religion and in all inspiration. The person who wrote it is not a college pot head either. The evidence is merely in the truth of the statement. Evidence is truth. Those three things define everything do they not? You would be false to say it doesn't. Name something that is not defined by those three things and ill change my mind. It allows someone to live fully at the very least. My life is infinitely more full than it used to that is a fact. Everyone i know can attest to noticing the positive changes that have occurred in me. We are all still learning my statements may not be perfect but unless we discuss all possibilites we only limit ourselves.

          "Name something that is not defined by those three things..."

          Can you define these three things in any other way than 'that which is, that which is not, and that which is nothing'?

          AND

          "It allows someone to live fully at the very least"

          How so? And even if this is true, it does not prove the overall claim of the argument. There are a lot of assumptions and judgments we make which are false but preferable, even necessary. Have you read Nietzsche on the subject?

          P.S. Do you have Duke Energy up in Brevard? They are trying to raise their base electric rates by 15 percent down here. If you are affected, what are your thoughts?

        Sep 29 2011: I can define them as: things that are true( things that do exist), things that are false(things that dont exist), and nothing or empty space. All things fall in these categories yet each one restrict define and manifest the others. I am familiar with Nietzsche actually; what an interesting man he was! To live fully one must embrace only that which is true (the present, not the past or future). One second spent in the latter two, either wanting the future to be now or wishing the present was still like the past, is one second you dont truly or fully live. If you embody the present fully no matter how bitter or how sweet it is; you live fully. If you spent your life chasing the horizon your whole life you will only end up where you started with the horizon still taunting in the distance. I live in Boone the mountains are always beautiful though it has rained a lot and destroyed many of the leaves fall colour. Im fairly certain Duke does do the energy there. Hmm that is quite outrageous in my opinion i dont see why they dont invest in solar power for energy and use it for hydrogen electrolysis it would pay for itself in no time and it would free oil companies to process oil for products that we will always need such as plastic. Why must we burn such precious resources up into our atmosphere and poison our lungs?
        • Sep 29 2011: I,t too, am familiar with Nietzsche and can almost hear the menacing laughter with which he would respond to

          "I can define them as: things that are true( things that do exist), things that are false(things that dont exist), and nothing or empty space. All things fall in these categories yet each one restrict define and manifest the others"

          This is not a definition, it's more of a tautology. Something either exist or it doesn't - I am not quite clear on the need for a category for 'empty space'. I also am failing to see the correlation between these 'three principles' and the practice of living in the present. How are the two concepts at all related?

        Sep 29 2011: Think of it in numbers there is 0 (nothing) a vacuum emptiness a single constant of infiniteness, all real numbers(infinite as well) and imaginary numbers which dont technically exist but can still be conceived in the mind. There is no number that would not fall in one of those three sections. 0 is not a real number nor is it imaginary therefore is deserves its own category. The present the the point where nothingness and everything meet; limited by DNE. It is the absolute truth; in reality there is nothing else but the present. The future has not happened and the past is already done; the past is now intangible to the present.
