This question already has an answer here:
I know, the title makes no sense, generally. Let me explain. I am just asking a question for which I found an answer nowhere (not even here). i think similar questions has been asked before and, no perfect answer is got(at least to what I ask).
The question is simple, why is light speed the limit for speed of particle? From many sources, I heard the answer, if we travel faster than light, we will reach somewhere before light reaches there and we will see and be in the past.
My question is, if we travel faster than light, surely we will be able to see the past. It is just because photons reach there later. We will see photons from a time before we started the journey, and probably the past. Of course it make sense. We are just seeing the past. Now we are seeing the past of sun since it take time for photons to reach here. In the same manner, we will see (and just see) the past of earth when we travel faster than light. That doesn't mean we are at the past. If we return back, we will reach the very normal time we would have felt if we neither went or returned.
I don't know if it makes any sense or not. I am not a graduate in physics. I am just 16.
