Wow. That's intriguing. Faster, leaner, more accurate. Well done, people.

On a thread-jacking tangent, I've been contemplating the fact that "now" is local. It's meaningless to say that something is happening "now" on the other side of the galaxy. Or the universe. The speed of light is really the speed of causality. Something that has no effect on us cannot be said to be happening now. There is no meta-perspective from which someone could say "here's what the universe looks like now." Now is local.

"What time is it?"
"What do you mean? Now, or when you asked me?"

It's one of the most bizarre aspects of relativity.
