    Just buzzin ' in,

    But how invariant is actually invariant !? We all seem to think that the speed of light is a constant, but minor differentialities do occur, so what is the point of using such a defenition after all if not one of comformity !?

    And to what extend can information be invariant !? At such a point information becomes absolute and that can 't be the thing we're after, no !?
