If you travel close to the speed of light between two 'stationary' points, you will experience practically no time interval. Going faster than light makes no sense because you can't improve your travel time below zero. It doesn't make sense to talk about increasing your speed relative to the observers beyond the speed of light either, because that means you can travel around a closed loop in space-time, violating causality.

We don't know the limits of technology yet.

Faster than light travel may be an impractical consideration now, but as we gain more insight a pathway may be found.

No, light (and any massless particle) is always moving at exactly the speed of light in your reference frame. You cannot Lorentz transform yourself into a frame that changes the speed of light because Lorentz transformations by definition preserve it.

You could say "oh, if they have energy, they have an 'inertial mass' according to m=E/c^2," but that formula is only half the truth.

Actually, it is E^2=(pc)^2+(mc^2)^2, so for m=0, E=pc.
p is momentum, p=gamma*mv, v being velocity. Now for v=c, gamma is infinite, and with m=0, this is technically undefined, can be any finite value.
So, m=0 but E and p are not 0.

That is a deep question, more than you might realize. A proton consists of two up and one down quark, yet there is a huge discrepancy between the sum of the quark masses, and the proton's mass. In a way, yes, most of the mass "comes from" the field/gluons that bind them together.

I think it's pretty much the opposite with the commonly accepted model today. "Empty space" is a thing derived from the existence of mass/energy (the two are interchangeable).

This also calls into question whether the 4th dimension referred to in the OP, time (which is a patently stupid thing to be shocked at the "discovery" of) actually exists intrinsically or is another derived quantity.

Lumping them together with typical x, y and z which all have fairly consistent meanings in this case.

Unless of course they're using the terms abstractly, but lets be honest they definitely aren't considering they're talking about it in terms of a 4th dimension. And the show's description on funi's website supports that.

basically fuck you, that isn't how we'd do it, we're way too into not having to change the way we do things to just lump it in like that.

Not him, but the thing is - you got three axis, each being an infinite line, aka continuing in the opposite direction beyond the O point. There is no space on that coordinate system for a fourth dimension, as it already covers all available ones that can be physically observed. If anything, a fourth dimension would be intertwined with all three axis.

Just think of the stuff in your image as a new way to visualize the theory behind the new dimension. Mathematics and physics are full of crutches and freshly defined visualizations of stuff that's hard to imagine, so they can wrap their heads around it in an ordered manner. Just assume that it doesn't make sense to you, because no one here had the need so far to visualize dimension W yet and that the thing just looks like regular 3 axis system.

Wrong.

Physics makes models that best describe processes and predict things we see in the real world, the models themselves don't have to describe what actually happens in the real world, as it is impossible to know what really happens.
Hence physics is as much wankery as math.

There is no difference between noting that a projectile follows a parabola like trajectory or that space is a 4 dimensional space, because that is what see, hence it is what it is described at until a better model comes up, like new theories of mechanics, like relativity.

That doesn't make any sense. Just because you cannot accurately describe the entire universe down to the most fundamental level doesn't mean that all of physics and science is wankery. Yes, physics is more or less an estimate of the workings of the universe, but it is a fairly accurate one. Physics has actual, real world applications. Imagining a fourth spacial dimension and writing up mathematical formulas does not, and is nothing more than shameless self pleasuring.

Except using said models with 4 dimensions we can make more predictions than before, hence it is useful in both physics and other real world applications.

In real world applications we use much more than simple 4 dimensional spaces, we even use infinite dimensional spaces in physics.

Because the bottom line is that dimensions aren't something special contrary to what you see in sci-fi, they're just a property of some mathematical structures.

When you identify such structures, you can use their properties.
You can view, for example, matrices as n by m dimensional spaces, and use properties of such spaces, which is something that is very useful in computing for example.
