It’s all relative,and irrelevant at the same time.

Language and life are different realities. Language is a sort of inexact tool implicitly given certain rules in order that human beings may adapt language constructions usefully to contemporary social circumstances, its all relative.


There was a young lady named Bright
whose speed was much faster,
she departed one day
in a relative way
and returned on the previous night.

Alphaville credits a band called Albert and the Heart of Gold as the lyricists for “Lady Bright”, but the limerick was originally written by Arthur Reginald Buller, (1874-1944). It appeared in the magazine Punch on December 19th, 1923. I have seen his version written as:

There was a young lady named Bright
Who could travel far faster than light;
She set off one day,
In a relative way,
And returned on the previous night.

To her friends, said the Bright one, in chatter;
“I have learned something new about matter.
My speed was so great
Much increased was my weight,
Yet I failed to become any fatter!”While I was looking up the author of this poem, I came across another one, anonymous:

There was a young man name of Sneed
Who once reached an infinite speed.
He went into a spin
at committing the sin
Of breaking Einsteinian creed.

Black holes occur when stars of a certain size use up all of their nuclear fuel. A star in such a situation begins to shrink and become very dense; the more dense it becomes, the greater its gravitational field, to the point that nothing, not even light, can escape. An additional effect is a distortion of spacetime (predicted by Einstein) with a resultant slowing of time itself. Theorists speculate that at its heart a black hole must contain a “singularity,” a single point of infinite density where the laws of quantum mechanics no longer apply, an “edge” of the universe and of time itself. A person or object entering the singularity would be subjected to stretching and squeezing (literally squeezed out of existence), and would not survive to report the experience. However, there are those who speculate that a free-fall trajectory which takes a spacecraft close to the black hole, but not close enough to be swallowed by the singularity, would effectively be a one-way time machine.

“By choosing the right path around the black hole, such a journey, which might take a few hours according to the clocks on the falling spacecraft, could be made to take as long as you like according to the outside Universe. A hundred years, a thousand years, or longer,” writes John Gribbin in his book Unveiling the Edge of Time.(7)
