comment Could light travel more slowly than the “universal speed limit”? Could this imply quantization of spacetime?
discontinuity in the range of possible velocities. Would that perhaps mean that spacetime is quantized? (I'm not sure that I'm being any clearer . . .)

@RetardedPotential: If all of an object's motion through spacetime is devoted to moving through space, it seems like that object wouldn't move at all through time. Light, however, does move through time (maybe?), so it must not be devoting all of it's motion through spacetime to moving through space. Therefore, the "constant speed" at which everything moves through spacetime would seem to be faster than the speed of light in some sense. If there are no possible headings through spacetime that make an object move through space faster than light, it would seem that there is a (continued)

comment Could much of the “missing” antimatter make up neutrons?
That is what I meant by "negatron".

comment Magnetic fields and gravitational waves. How far do they reach?
@Raindrop: If I understand correctly, if a force's gauge particle is massless then its extent is (maybe?) infinite but if its gauge particle has mass then its extent is bounded. I think the strong and weak forces have gauge particles with mass.

comment How is wavefunction probability redistributed after partial wavefunction collapse?
Yes, I meant that the beamsplitter would still be present but without the camera off to the left. Just to be absolutely clear, would having no camera off to the left give the same interference pattern that having a camera off to the left would give (assuming the presence of the beamsplitter in both cases)? Thanks for spending time on this question.

Does this mean that the pattern observed at CCC would not be affected by whether C is present or not?
