[quote:Michael_:MV8yMDAxNTMxXzMzNjIyODk1XzE4QTFDMUEz] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1123472:MV8yMDAxNTMxXzMzNjIyNDMwXzlCM0UyNEMy] Prof. dr. Wubbo J. Ockels is a Dutch physicist, and also the Netherlands' original astronaut. He is a Professor of Aerospace Sustainable Engineering and Technology at the University of Delft, and tries to stimulate a mentality change among Dutch citizens. In his mind-bending TEDxAmsterdam talk, Ockels explains how ‘time’ is created by human beings, as a way our brains can make sense of gravity. [b]The speed of light is constant, because it is made by us[/b]: it’s the clock by which we have calibrated our existence. Based on this premise, Ockels proposes a new way to explore life in our galaxy. [/quote] It's not constant because we "made up the idea of time", what we percieve as constant is simply a variable based on our perception of time. the speed at which light travel a certain distance would be the same, percieved by an alien race or us, perhaps meassured differently, but it would still be constant. I think! I can't be absolutely certain :) [/quote]
He's been up there, and here is his story. Please take the time to sit this one out, it will change the way you see the world around you.
