It's important to keep in mind that we already communicate at
light speed. Light has relativistic mass (meaning that it has
energy which can be transformed into mass [E = mc^2]). If we are
one day able to reverse that process in a controlled way
(transforming mass into light), then we could potentially one
day harness the energy of light for transport.

Of course there may be other ways to achieve intersteller
travel, other than moving at, or faster, than the speed of
light, such as manipulating space.

Yet another train of thought is the area of quantum perception.
That is, that the known universe is formed through perception of
the observer, or observers. If this is the case, then we could
potentially learn to alter our location by changing the
perception. There are some who claim to have already achived
this, through deep meditation that lead to them opening their
eyes and finding themselves elsewhere.

Let's not close our minds completely to the idea of intersteller
travel. We don't yet know the nature of all things to be able to
claim all things possible or impossible.
