# If light has mass then it cannot travel at the speed of light if it has no mass it would not be affected by gravity Therefore the math for the infinite mass theory at light-speed must be reexamined?

Wrong, Light has mass and does travel at the speed of light and is affected by gravity! Light mass: hf=mc^2 means m=h/cw. Optical mass is m-red=2.96e-36 kg (w=.75um). Violet would be double 5.92e-36 kg. The math for the infinite mass theory at light-speed is also wrong.- -------- Light has no resting mass, just energy. Gravity is a bend in space, therfore Gravity does not pull at light but the light 'bends' with space

If you believe that the soul is immortal, that means that it lasts forever, and is therefore infinite in terms of its length of existence.

### Is it possible for someone to travel faster than light?

Absolutely not, according to the general theory of relativity it takes an infinite amount of energy to achieve lightspeed, also as an object accelerates it gains mass until at lightspeed it becomes infinitly large, also time dilation kicks in big time at about 80%c and eventually if you keep accelerating time will start to reverse (grandfather paradox). On the lighter side the special theory of relativity allows us to manipule the space time continuum to beat light to a destination ie wormholes, warpdrive, gravity drive, infinite improbability drive, ect
