That Damn Negative Mass Thing
The math seems to suggest it can exist.

The logic says WTF?

Thoughts anybody?

Go!

Evidence>Logic, trust me some times things don't make sense but that is the way they are.

I could be wrong, and likely am considering this is by no means any where near my field of expertise but ...

If negative mass could somehow be demonstrated to be an existence, would it not be reasonable to hypothesize that since it could be an existence, it infers a "negative dimension?"

Go!

Dude.

The double slit experiment ... (THE electron goes through BOTH slits)
No absolute reference for spacetime ...
Uncertainty ...

Should we call your Rumpelstiltskin ?

Logic (by itself) is shit.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I'm assuming you would know, since the experiment was performed with your molecules:

Quote:In 1999, the double-slit experiment was successfully performed with Buckyball molecules (each of which comprises 60 carbon atoms).[24][49] A Buckyball is large enough (diameter about 0.7 nm, nearly half a million times larger than a proton) to be seen under an electron microscope.

Thumbsup

RE: That Damn Negative Mass Thing
It had better be possible, otherwise no warp drive and we're stuck in this solar system until it evaporates.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: That Damn Negative Mass Thing
Logic - particularly naive logic - is irrelevant. Modern physics makes "intuitive" logic its bitch.

Equations admit of all sorts of nonphysical solutions - that's not at all unusual.

... this is my signature!
