Chrysostom: light speed is still the limit
danny the boy: IAmBroom: "You know, as whacky theories go, this one is pretty cool. The odds of that much of the universe being covered up by Dyson spheres is ... unlikely, to be generous. But we can't (currently) prove it's not true. Completely unverifiable and unrefutable hypothesis."
Can you explain why you believe this to be unlikely? Also, how is it unverifiable if there are astronomers actively looking for the evidence, as noted by the second article? Isn't that the exact opposite of "unverifiable?"
