Krishna Software Newsletter November 1998 TRAVELING FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT!

Welcome to the KrishnaSoft's Electronic Newsletter.
This is the November 1998 issue entitled: "Traveling Faster Than the Speed of Light!".

This newsletter goes to around 1000 people who either have an interest in Vedic science or spiritually entertaining multimedia technology.

(1) New Free Demo: Look at What's in Krsna's Mouth!
(2) Traveling Faster than the Speed of Light!
(3) Clues on How to Fly to Mahavisnu
(4) List of KrishnaSoft's products


Okay, so if you are unsure whether the new multimedia CDs from Krishnasoft will work on your computer or not, there is now a free small demo from the Krsna CD available at: Once Lord Krsna ate some dirt and when asked by mother Yasoda, He denied it. So mother Yasoda looked in Krsna's mouth to see if He was telling the truth or not. You can download this 2.5 megabyte ZIP file to see what mother Yasoda saw in Krsna's mouth. Or you can obtain the entire Krsna book CD which contains 51 hours of audio-visual material. This demo is only 5 minutes to give you a hint of what's on this CD. If you can get this demo to work on your computer, all the other Krishnasoft products will also work fine on your computer because they use similar software modules. If you run into difficulty, just ask the technical experts at email:


Recently, there has been some discussion going on whether superluminal (faster than the speed of light) travel is possible or not. Here's an excerpt taken from the gac.physics.astronomy conference:

>The American Institute of Physics Bulletin of Physics News
>Number 398 October 21, 1998 by Phillip F. Schewe and Ben Stein

>ENERGIES. Einstein's special theory of relativity asserts that no
>physical object can travel faster than the speed of light. The theory
>also holds that mass and energy will have different values depending
>on your frame of reference. The idea that the mass (energy) density
>in any one frame would always be at least equal to or greater than
>zero is called the "weak energy condition." Ken Olum of Tufts
>(, 617-628-5000, x2753) follows the
>reverse tack in arguing that superluminal travel is possible in certain
>warped versions of space/time but that this would entail the
>existence of negative energy. In this case the concepts of
>superluminal motion and of negative energy need to be explored.
>An object with negative mass would be less massive than empty
>space. We don't know of any such object, but physicists have
>detected small regions of space characterized by a very slightly
>negative energy density (the so called Casimir effect; see Updates
>122 and 300). If you combine negative energy with positive energy
>you get nothing, very different from the explosion you get when
>you combine matter and antimatter. As for superluminal travel---in
>Olum's model objects and signals do not actually travel faster than
>light. Rather, the curvature of a spacetime incorporating a
>negative-energy density is such that one can arrive quickly at distant
>places using sub-light speeds. (Physical Review Letters, 26 October

Readers of Srimad-Bhagavatam should already know that one can travel to places light years away within a few moments. For example, Lord Krsna took Arjuna to meet with Mahavisnu who is many light years away. Taking the modern figure for the speed of light at 186,282 miles/second and figures from the Srimad-Bhagavatam of the end of the covering of the universe at about 5,555 trillion yojanas, we see that it would take 7560 light years for Lord Krsna and Arjuna to reach Mahavisnu. That is, if their chariot traveled at the speed of light for 7560 years, they would reach Mahavisnu. However, we know that Lord Krsna was present on this planet earth for about 125 years. Thus, Lord Krsna's chariot was doing superluminal travel. The following from the Srimad-Bhagavatam (3.30.24) gives some more details on superluminal travel:

Thus he has to pass ninety-nine thousand yojanas within two or three
moments, and then he is at once engaged in the torturous punishment
which he is destined to suffer.
One yojana is calculated to be eight miles, and he has to pass along a road which is therefore as much as 792,000 miles. Such a long distance is passed over within a few moments only. The subtle body is covered by the constables so that the living entity can pass such a long distance quickly and at the same time tolerate the suffering. This covering, although material, is of such fine elements that material scientists cannot discover what the coverings are made of. To pass 792,000 miles within a few moments seems wonderful to the modern space travelers. They have so far traveled at a speed of 18,000 miles per hour, but here we see that a criminal passes 792,000 miles within a few seconds only, although the process is not spiritual but material.

Here the indication is that we do not necessarily need objects with negative mass or negative energy but there exist subtler elements than space itself. The mind, intelligence, and ego are material elements that are subtler than ether or space and thus less massive. So, there's more out there than what meets the eye.


Some people asked us to give them clues on how to fly around the universe in the Vedic Astronomy game contained in the multimedia Krsna CD. Here are some hints that will help you tour the entire Vedic universe and help you easily solve the game.

(1) All the major features of the universe can be visited by initially setting the Pitch=0, Pitch=90 or Pitch= -90. If you fly at Pitch=0, you will be traveling through Bhurloka. If you fly at Pitch = -90, you will fly toward the lower planetary systems and hell. If you fly at Pitch= 90, you will fly toward Satyaloka.

(2) Once the pitch is set, turn on the WARP speed button.

(3) Speed up by clicking on the UP arrow until you are flying at about 32000 yoj/second if Pitch=0 and about 1000 yoj/second if pitch is nonzero. You can change the speed to higher or lower values once you are familiar with the universe.

(4) As you are flying, note the scroll line where the description of the features you are passing by appear; for example, if you are flying at pitch=0, you will pass by "Kusadvipa", "Ocean of Salt Water", "Ocean of milk", "Puskaradvipa", etc. Click on "Land Here" to find out whether the planet has any clues to offer you to help you reach Mahavisnu. You can also fly backward toward Jambudvipa by making the speed negative.

(5) Once you have landed in different planets of the universe, it will become obvious how to reach Mahavisnu. [CC Madhya 19.151]: Brahmanda bhramite kona bhagyavan jiva guru krsna prasade paya bhakti lata bija.

SIDE NOTE: Krishna Software would like to keep a list of the top ten scores of people who have reached Mahavisnu. So if you reach Mahavisnu, you can submit your high score and name to us. The authentic way to do this is to email us the file HISCORES.DAT from your \KSI\KB subdirectory once you reach Mahavisnu. This is an encrypted file.
