How to live forever.
Sunday, August 15, 2004
This comes from my friend Daisy. The idea and the conclusion were his, I just supplied a couple of the details.
Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is E=mc2 or energy is equal to mass multiplied by the speed of light. This means that time slows down as mass approaches the speed of light. Time slows down because you are moving faster than everything else.
This means that time will pass slower for a person moving at near light-speed than for the people at the place where they left. What seems like only 4 months to the person in the vessel is 10 years to everyone else. Roughly.
So what if it we were to reverse it? Time slows down for the person who is moving faster because everything else is moving slower. Therefore if were were to slow ourselves down and let everything move faster, we could conceivably live forever.
This is where the Personal Reality Deceleration Device, or PRDD, comes into play. You wear this device and it slows down your perception of reality and lets you essentially live forever.
We also theorized that moving to Amsterdam would probably have the same effect.
There's only one problem with this way of living forever. What's the point? You'd spend you entire life stuck in traffic.
