Answer to Question #13397 in Electromagnetism for Bruce Patterson

Question #13397
I wonder about the following: if time actually is the dimension of sequence then energy moving at the speed of light would take a certain amount of time to travel the distance of one Plank. That amount of time is the smallest increment of time/sequence possible and is the reason that the speed of light is what it is. Time will not allow a faster speed--it cannot be sequenced.
So then--my question--does this simplistic logic merit further contemplation on my part?
Thank you

Expert's answer

from this point of view, all particles can not move faster then light.
BUT! from special relativity. delta tau = delta t * sqrt{1-V^2/c^2} - well known formula, when V=c, delta tau=0.

At this moment we didn't find tachyons, so we think that speed of light is maximum, but if we will find them => Planks distance is nor the smallest, and in fact our Universe (space) is not discrete
