comment Flow in the strip $0 < x < \pi/2$, $y > 0$
I am not sure if I can make my question clearer. I do not understand what is meant by flow. I could not find a proper definition anywhere, hence the question. Perhaps flow means ideal flow.

Why downvote? This is a perfectly valid question.

Never mind. Trust me, there is no logical deduction in physics. Physics is mostly empirical, that is why we have to test everything experimentally. Take QM for example, it is based on equation which you cannot derive -- it is a clever guess. So why not postulate negative and imaginary mass and build some equipment that could detect it?

OK, there is no evidence for the existence of black holes, yet we strongly believe in them. Instead of believing in them we should be skeptical?

By the way, what is wrong with negative mass? To be honest, I have not seen any compelling arguments for excepting only positive mass. We know negative energies are possible, why not negative mass and imaginary mass?

Suppose a particle starts traveling faster than light without getting to the speed of light first. Just because such beasts would cause strange things to happen does not mean it is impossible.

If something has not been observed it does not mean it does not exist. Only a bad physicist can think this way! According to your argument, quantum mechanics is a complete nonsense and we should not believe in it because it makes your head hurt. Overall, a pointless answer.
