So imagine your on a train right.

You can walk forward because you're a total baller and such. Therefore we can say that being carried inside of something that's moving a certain speed, you can increase the speed you are actually going at by running on said train. This does not require adding more energy to the train.

So like


What if you had a train in your train with a train in your train, or like a particle collider in your particle collider. Couldn't you make shit go really fast doing this.

You could right.


So like


This makes going faster than light very simple all we need is the biggest train in the world. If we get enough trains inside of our trains we will eventually be going at faster than light.


This is of course assuming we aren't complete idiots and buy the kind of trains that are really just a big circle.

A train within a train?


Yea you have a train going around in circles INSIDE the bigger train. Therefore going twice the speed if it's just as powerful as the original train. Which it is of course.

Can't go faster, let alone reach the speed of light.

Also, why stop at trains? Why not put a planet in a planet, so you can orbit while you orbit?

Learn to Relativity.

As velocity approaches the speed of light, energy approaches infinity. Thus nothing can go faster than the speed of light. Despite your vector additions.

You are of course correct.

Being on a faster planet makes all of this entirely more possible.

For best results please use black holes.


Also, for all you negative nancys, I couldn't fly 100 years ago so the only logical conclusion is that 100 years from now I can move faster than light.

This does not require adding more energy to the train.

It requires adding more energy to the system train+person running on the train for the original train's speed to be maintained.

BBBBBAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH (Inception)


But when you speed start to speed up in the train, you're slowing the train down too. Newton's laws brah. So the first train still has to have all that energy.

No.


This is of course because we are accelerating something of lower mass on board of something with more mass and inertia

Well, it doesn't matter how long it is. The speedometer of the train within the train within the train within the train would still read the actual speed of the train withing the train within the train within the train. In other words, the speed of this train to the 4th power, relative to the train of the first power is still its own groundspeed. This can be proven with the fly theory.

Don't know if anyone has said this, and I recognise that your OP is not being serious.

But I'd just like to throw it out here. Superluminal travel will warp spacetime. Not sure why, but apparently it does. And as you approach C, drag increases infinitely, so the amount of energy required to accelerate increases infinitely.

TL;DR I just ruined a well-meaning thread with srz disczn.

As of now, theoretically it could happen.

I can guarantee the japaneze will do it

And to your theory, how can you have a train inside a train? It would never work but yeah, the velocity would increase but i think you would have serious amounts of resistance added on with the faster you move.

In other news I have decided that light is actually a meta-positively charged particle where as other particules and such are positive (we are using positive and negative as metaphors here, or something) and that is why light gtfo's so quick whenever it goes anywhere.

Liquids have thrown a temporary wrench in the plan for now so I will not make a new thread about it yet.

You may also have to pretend that it is a square before you can pretend the prior.

You put trains inside. This trains are smaller, require less energy to move than the original train, and therefore can move faster than the original train could by itself.

Woah woah woah.

We don't care about spedometers where I come from


If we made my assumptions, the train would be going faster as far as actually moving through a defined set of space.

I could have have read what you said wrong.
