Absolutely! Otherwise this Forum wouldn't exist, it's fueled on our flights of fantasy.
Relativity states that c
is the absolute limit for everything, and even information must follow this law. Experiments in quantum tunnelling have sent a signal past the light speed limit, but although this is allowed according to Heisenberg, the process should randomise the signal, turn it into white noise. Yet, in fact, the signal remained coherent, Mozart in, Mozart out, at c+
So the light speed limit has already been broken, and the LHC has provided another hint that we may have to rewrite physics...just a little bit.
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
