Hello again Albert and List, This extra late comment is provoked by several things: re- reading Lee Smolin's 'Life of the Cosmos' where he remarked on the shock of learning about entanglement - i.e. that some "force" or "information" apparently travels instantaneously between particles no matter what distance separates them - maybe even halfway across the universe. That reminded of a conclusion formed long ago: that the real effects of inertia compel one to say that inertia too travels instantaneously - over at least half the radius of the universe. Why? Because, as any circus uni-cyclist will tell you, along with scientists working with gyroscopes, the inertial effect known as the 'gyroscopic principle' - which keeps uni-cyclists upright and allows gyroscopes to work - also travels 'instantaneously' and, in line with Mach's Principle, that originates in the "fixed stars" (i.e. the mass of the universe - which, on aaverage, resides at about half the radius of the universe, which itself is probably much bigger than the observed universe). A post last year also reminded me that the same effect has been seen to affect a Foucault pendulum 'instantly' during an eclipse: http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2011/mar/m19-002.shtml And Tom Van Flandern's analysis and conclusions at www.metaresearch.org/cosmology/speed_of_gravity.asp www.metaresearch.org/cosmology/gravity/speed_limit.asp show that the same can probably be said for 'gravity'. Yet none of these facts seem to be discussed (maybe not even realized) by mainstream scientists. Wonder why? Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
