See FTL Photons by John G. Cramer
Alternate View Column AV43 Keywords: Casimir effect, vacuum fluctuations, virtual particles, FTL, superluminal Published in the MidDecember1990 issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact Magazine; This column was written and submitted 6/1/90 and is copyrighted ©1990, John G. Cramer. All rights reserved. No part may be reproduced in any form without the explicit permission of the author. It explains things well IMO. It appears the formula for the speed of light between the plates is misstated. Either v/c should be c/v, or the minus sign should be a plus sign. I'm too lazy to track it down. BTW I first read this column in the MidDecember 1990 ANALOG (which is how I knew to look for it online). The original column had a cartoon with a speed limit sign something like SPEED LIMIT 670,616,629 MPH So strictly enforced you can't imagine! Next to the sign is an openmouthed, eyesbuggingout traffic cop watching a photon (a grinning, round white blob wearing shades) going by in excess of the speed limit...

Although I don't like using Wiki articles, this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_condition near the bottom with the subtitle "Attempts at falsifying the energy conditions" gives a decent explanation for your "So?" One of my alltime favourite papers is this one: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2689486 and I have a decent reference collection on this and associated effects. I followed the initial "warp drive" posting down that rabbit hole to see how "whatever I came up with" coincided with my prior inquiries on this subject. Since I only have my imagination to work with, communications, navigation, safety (not getting pockmarked by micrometeorites..), motive power..etc. are relevant considerations; mathematical physics first and the Drake equation second..it would be nice to meet beings smarter than humans as a whole despite Hawking's misgivings. I'm adding this note, using the keywords: entanglement, spacetime, factorization in a search engine you'll come upon a typical link like this one: https://journals.aps.org/pra/abstrac...evA.103.022213 I joined this forum because it is a great resource for integer factorization tools, methods and results. Factorization, in a general sense, seems to have far more utility than simple number theoretic excursions. In 2001, when I first noticed the RSA Challenge (..then the Certicom Challenge..) I never thought my inquiries would lead to fundamental mathematical notions nor abstract notions about the conception of the universe but they have. Both the forum and the subject of factorization (in its widest interpretation) have choppy water from time to time. Last fiddled with by jwaltos on 20220401 at 10:06
