Why is it that the amount of energy of mass has anything to do with the cosmic "speed limit?" Why did God choose that number (c squared
it is not certain if it is actually c and not some other special case whose one predominant approximation is with c. Einstein chose it and it was Rudolf Hertz and Maxwell who first realzied the significance of c constant; God is either too busy to care, or to nonexistant to effect any change.
Blame God for our ignorance?
That's a prize.
All I have to say is why is the speed of light involved with apparently disparate things like the amount of energy contained in mass? Why should the speed limit squared be the energy? What would make God choose that?
