Tick . . . . . tock . . . tick . . . tock I must be traveling at near light speed tonight!
I love how your guys speak in scientific language.
This site almost never feels normal to me. But that's just frame of reference, I guess. ;-)
Hi Caitlin -- I like your web site -- I also love data.
As to normal, that was coming from a guy who considered the bar scene from Star Wars "normal."
Thanks for reporting. Do you still experience any slowdowns? Site feels normal to us currently.
Yep -- normal to me, too.
Last night this web site quit moving through time. ;-)
Check A Slower Speed of Light out. Not only the net can reach ultra-classical limit case. Light can do that too, see experiments of Vestergaard Hau.
Special theory of relativity says that everything moves with light speed in Minkowski space - that's no news. You do too, of course. You do it always, sitting in your chair doing nothing except ignoring the motion of earth, sun, milky way and so on you move with light speed in time direction.
The question is just what part of velocity is not in time direction - this is Newtonian velocity. This one we have in mind, even now, 110 years later.
Yes, you can think of the electrostatic force on a charged particle as resulting from the particle moving through time, just as the magnetic force is the result of the particle moving through space.
