On Speeds in Special Relativity
Edward Kapuscik Professor Emeritus University of Lodz, Poland

It is shown that the commonly accepted fundamental paradigm of Spe- cial Relativity on the maximality of the speed of light is false. Tachyons, the superluminal objects, are allowed by Special Relativity equally well as subluminal particles are. However, for tachyons there do not exist rest frames and the notion of rest mass or rest energy for tachyons cannot be operationally defined. Instead of that the notion of energy in the reference frame where tachyons move with infinite speed is defined. The expres- sions for energy and momentum of superluminal objects are derived. The momentum vanishes for objects moving with infinite speed. This may explain the weakness of interaction of superluminal objects with other objects. The paper appeals for a change in teaching Special Relativity.

On a Fatal Error in Tachyonic Physics

From the times of antiquity philosophers and scientists have been straining mindsover the primeval nature of order and chaos. Modern cosmologists and philosophersstill do the same. What had been at the beginning? Had it been primordial chaos, orprimordial order, or there had been no beginning?From the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy we learn that Plato (born between 429and 423 BC) was "deeply impressed with the order and beauty he observes in theuniverse and his project in the dialogue is to explain order and beauty. The universe,Plato proposes, is the product of rational, purposive, and beneficent agency. It isthe handiwork of a divine Craftsman (“Demiurge”) who, imitating anunchanging and eternal model, imposes mathematical order on preexistent chaosto generate the ordered universe (Greek kosmos).The governing explanatory principle of the account is teleological: the universe as awhole as well as its various parts are so arranged as to produce a vast array of goodeffects. It strikes Plato strongly that this arrangement is not fortuitous, but theoutcome of the deliberate intent of Intellect (nous), anthropomorphically represented by the Craftsman who plans and constructs a world that is as excellent asits nature permits it to be"
