Im going to explain what I understand. Please do NOT merge this with something in the "Unexplained" Just let me know if I am right, or I am wrong. I'm trying to "learn", and not "guess" (or at least read it over first, chime in, and when the rest of my fellow crazies start chiming in THEN flush it.)

OK here it goes. I'm stuck using two dimensions here, so please bear with me

..........

Ten points, say you are point one. Expansion begins

. . . . . . . . . .

Points have expanded EXACTLY two "spacebar" taps.

Measure the velocity of the closest point to you, say point two.(im going to toss a number in there, 1/10th of c) Now, measure the velocity of the farthest. (Again, tossing a number in there, light speed or c)

But in reality, none have gone faster than 1/10th the speed of light, its the distance that creates the illusion.

So now, if you hop along the line to any point and measure the velocity of the next adjacent point, they will be moving at 1/10th c

But looking at all the points together, that last point appears to be moving at c

This has got to be, hands down, the greatest illusion of speed that I have ever seen. Its flat out FANTASTIC. Its right up there with electricity moving at c.

So, did I get it right? If not, please direct me to where I have misunderstood. Again, I am trying to learn, so please dont flush me to the unexplained, or to free space, without letting me know where I went wrong.

(BTW to the poster that directed me to that PDF, I would have got back to you sooner, but I was horribly sick all day and am now just starting to feel better. The funny thing is, the first thing I think of is expanding dots..... . . . . . . )

Go figure
