Speed of Light pt.1

So I have been ranting to many of you that the speed of light is not constant and should only be used in a perfect aether. It’s been hard to work since I do not have 8+ years of advanced theoretical physics training. But I came across a thought in my brain today that I can’t let go.

If light travels at 299,792,458m/s in a perfect vacuum with no gravitational pulls to the otherwise then we can assume that the universe has a constant impedance or resistance 3.3356409519815204957557671447492e-9z which might be the inverse of the speed of light. Not correct, but close enough for this discussion. We know that the universe is not empty and we believe that it is less barren than we ever imagined (Dark matter). If a light particle or wave, either one works, travels through space creating a ripple that we call time at a certain speed? Wouldn’t the universe be uniform? Yes. However it is not. So… I propose and will eventually prove that the speed of light cannot be constant and also is not a magical property or barrier that is unbreakable.

I’ve spent too much time by myself this weekend and severely need someone to stop by and visit me. No joke.


Signing out,




  1. I never bought Light being a constant either. There are only two constants Death and taxes. Good luck tomorrow!

    Your future tactic for job interviews....

    I was in a job interview and I opened a book and started reading. Then I said to the guy, "Let me ask you a question. If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?"

    He said, "I don't know." I said, "I don't want your job."
