Light Speed Barrier as a Cosmic Curtain Separating the Visible and Invisible Worlds

Golden G. Nyambuya


We argued earlier from a physical and number theoretic standpoint that an upper bound speed limit such as the speed of light implies the existence of a lower limit to the duration of events in the Universe [16]. Consequently, this leads to a minimum characteristic length separation for events in the Universe. In another article [20], we argued that matter and energy that is in compliance with-and-is in observance of the upper bound light speed limit -- such matter and energy -- is governed by the lower limiting uncertainty principle of Heisenberg. If there is a lower limiting uncertainty principle, we asked [20] the natural and logical question What would an upper bound uncertainty principle mean? We come to the interesting conclusion that an upper bound uncertainty principle must apply to particles that travel at speeds, equal to, or greater than the speed of light [20]. If Heisenberg's lower bound uncertainty principle tells us of the limit of what is observable (detectable), surely, an upper bound uncertainty principle must tell us of a non-observable (non-detectable) world, i.e., an invisible world. In there present reading, we argue that the speed of light may very we be an important barrier separating the visible and invisible worlds. These two worlds exist (or can exist) in the same spacetime arena.
