The speed of light is being heralded as the fastest thing around. Given its 186,000 mps record, I have to admit that that’s very impressive indeed. Nevertheless, I also believe there’s more to it than meets the eye. What about all the stuff we don’t know? All the things our mind can’t cope or even come up with today? We should be so very humble in our ‘being,’ but we’re not. Somehow, we’ve convinced ourselves we are the true, and only, alpha dog on the block. I fully disagree with this train of thought/s. If a black hole can swallow up light, the speed of it must be higher. Will this universal ‘vacuum cleaner’ one day be our undoing?
