Thank you for your interest. You are not interrupting. (And your manners... I'm not used to such politeness, upbringing, and culture around here! :| )Gruntfuttock":2tc8rabp said:Pardon the interruption of a very interesting thread.
Would there be a possibility of a modified gravity lens?If light can be bent quite successfully around a planetary and solar source,surely it's not beyond an advanced civilisation to utilise this phenomenon?
I agree that alien intelligences--and we-- could use the bending of light through mass and gravity; gravity waves; bending and warping of spacetime; possible manipulation of unseen dimensions; and who-knows-what-else to communicate (and travel) across the light-years.
I guess we shall see as the years and the progress unfold...
Welcome to SDC, Mr. Grunt. (futtock)
