“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Faster than C

Neutrinos may be able to violate c according to some news out of CERN today. Now hypothetical particles that never drop below c wouldn't violate relativity. It's also possible that space-time is an emergent property of certain objects (Petr Horava). Neutrinos of this frequency might not emit space-time.

One thing is certain for the neck of the woods I'm in: now we seem to have one more entity in the universe that doesn't conform to what Martin Hagglund claims is the unbreakable law of succession given by Derrida.

There are of course many implications if this is verified. It looks already like it's more than likely.
