Disclaimer: All facts are written out from my head, and -- although true at time of learning (and in my belief of them) -- I’ve never accurately checked anything off with modern scientific updates, so, just saying…

So Why Don't We Fall Through the Floor?
If You Travel in a Circle Fast Enough You Can Go Forwards in Time
At this speed, it is physically impossible to go any faster. We cannot break the Light Barrier -- but, what if someone on the bus sneezes? Their violently fast sneeze adds to the forward velocity of the bus, which of course puts us at risk of going at a speed greater than the SOL. However, as stated by psychical law, we cannot break the Light Barrier. So instead, physics must slow down the inside of the bus to prevent anything on the inside adding to the forward velocity. (The bus itself is not slowed because this is a single, physical unit that is not “inside” something -- I realise this is confusing, but never mind it for now.) So anyway, because physics has slowed down the inside of the bus, that means the things on the outside of the bus (ie: the planet it is hurtling around) will be moving “faster” -- of course they are actually just moving at “normal” speed, but due to time being relative, the people in the bus feel they are moving at “normal” speed and the outside world is going much faster. This of course means the people inside the bus are going forward in time, because they are “slower” than the outside “normal” world. To put this into a little more perspective, if the people inside the bus spend an entire day travelling at 99% of the SOL, this equates to an entire year passing on the outside of the bus.
If the Sun Were Made of Pineapples, it Would be Just as Hot
The only problem is that our Sun is made up of hydrogen and that is what keeps the fusion reaction going -- our supposed pineapple sun would cool down quickly, instead of burning for billions of years.
And that concludes the kinds of things I like to think about. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it, and I thank Adam for letting me write this for his blog.
