Lemme see.
1. the cosmological MV - you'd have to travel beyond the universe's (current) event horizon so the answer is no for a long time to come, and no forever if the universe continues to accelerate. 2. the quantum MV - you answered that, only in the David Deutsch sense 3. other parts of the string landscape - seems unlikely 4. the mathematical MV - also seems unlikely That said, wormholes might allow it, if they can be shown to exist and shown to not collapse in the manner Einstein and Rosen (I think) calculated. Which requires negative energy, maybe zero-point. In that case ... "Star gate, here we come!" :) -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
