So heres my theory. String theory says that the very smallest thing in the universe is space time foam. which is planck legnth, or one dimension. in one dimension the only friction you would have to worry about is what is directly in the path of your moving object. but space time foam is the smallest thing in the universe so nothing could possibly be in the way of your moving object. so lets say that you have built two machines. one in our solar system and one in another solar system. both are connected by string and not waves. then you have someone step inside the machine. the machine chamber is obviously vacuum sealed and the person is wearing an environmental suit. they are then levitated by electromagnets and instantly frozen to Zero Kelvin. The electromagnets are there so that they dont break apart by touch walls or the floor (it seems to me that if someone is frozen at Zero Kelvin they would shatter easily. i dont know if thats true or not but it makes sense to me.) and they are at Zero Kelvin so that when the particles of there body are being removed and transmitted one at a time the dont die. the machine has a computer that holds in its memory the location of every particle of there body and is sent along the one dimensional string connection instantly. they are assembled at the other machine and then heated back to the temperature they were before they left and then they leave and they are across the galaxy.
this theory is not well researched by any means. i thought it up when i was reading about space time foam. This is based off of the very small amount of knowledge i have of physics and i just wanted to share it with someone who would be able to shed some light on it. the way i thought the connection would work is that in one dimension, anything you do to one end of the string, it would instantly happen at the other end. you send a particle traveling along the one dimensional string and it would instantly be at the other end. this was based off of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Saga, where he makes up a fake particle called a philote that moves faster than the speed of light and is connected to another philote and if you move one philot the other one would move at the same time no mater what the distance is.
i also understand that the reason for the speed of light being a barrier is because light has no mass and that is the speed that is travels. so therefor anything with mass cant possibly go faster. This theory that i came up with would make the lightspeed barrier not even part of the equation. so please dont post “particles have mass so they cant go faster than the speed of light.”
