Greg, Martin, Ray, List,

This FTL issue has been most entertaining to follow. I'd like to
point out a few things:

1. Einstein _postulated_ that the speed of light (SOL) was
constant, and that nothing could exceed it.

2. The SOL has never, AFAIK, been tested on _uncharged_
particles, until now. Field/particle interactions in
accelerators are the cause of the upper limit of particle speed.

The OPERA experiment was brilliant in that it uses uncharged
particles. Unfortunately, there's no way to accelerate them
without using SOL-limited accelerators. Had that not been the
case, the speed difference might have been spectacular. The
interpretation of the ICARUS data is based on the assumption
that neutrinos should lose energy if they traveled at or above
the SOL. This theory has never been tested with uncharged
particles. If OPERA shows the SOL violated, you can't use the
same theories to discredit it.

This, IMO, is the real reason for the controversy. If neutrinos
can travel faster than light, then the whole system of theories
based on the light speed limit will have to crash like a house
of cards. The Physics Establishment doesn't want to see this
happen. Maybe they'll have to sweep it under the rug, like they
did with Michelson-Morley.

I wonder why they didn't just raise the SOL limit a little and
be done with it.

Best Regards,
