    All our accurate scientific measurements we have today can be related to the known constant speed of light, which works for most things. Though i don't like the number 299,792,458m per second.

    What if we used a different constant which had a measurement of 1, and we could work back from that into decimals. If there are more universes other than ours, and if one particle in our universe is in the exact position as one in another. Then the distance between them is a constant. Also the distance can remain constant in a 3D equily balanced multiverse. with a 3D equilateral triangle the simplest 3D shape to form.

    If we take the distance from one atom to another atom universe to universe and give this distance the unit of 1 or (1universe), and if time is also constant but based around our earth year couldnt we also have a UniSec. Could 1UniVerse (distance) = 1UniSec (time)?

    Ive been playing with some basic calculations using this idea, though i'm a noob really and this is just an IDEA. Any thoughts?

    Sorry, the whole thing was rather confusing. I don't exactly understand what it is you propose, because the speed of light, in most calculations of science, is 1, and every other speed made out like a "percentage" of c. It happens to be easy that way, and a large number for light speed allows us to work with smaller numbers for mundane and daily issues, without having to invoke the speed of light for everything.

    Thoughts?

    You're idea is silly.

    It looks like your trying to construct your own sort of space-time based on ideas that violate relativity theory (which is tested to the hilt).

    Irony??

    Irony may be: gentle, subtle, thin, witty or sharp, mocking or railing, heavy, and occasionally cruel or savage. This last one would be a friendly attribute to your leonine aspect. Cheers

    The speed of light varies depending on the medium that the light is moving in. In a vacuum, the speed of light is recognized as 299 792 458 meters per second.

    Photons move at c (about 299 792 458 meters per second). The apparent slower speed in a medium is due to what is essentially repeated absorptions and re-emissions.

    There is no apparent reason why this would so. Why have you proposed it?
