The daring intention behind this paper is to throw a fiercer light into three discreetly shadowed points which, in my opinion, appear hazy or misconceived. To start with, I take it that zero and infinity are logical limits. Anything in between has to be a circumstantial limit. Light velocity is a circumstantial limit since it is determined by the permeability and permittivity which are circumstantial properties of the e/m propagation medium, perhaps related, in some way, to the zero point energy; no one knows for sure yet and, paraphrasing Halton Arp, in that case everyone is a crackpot! In cases where such a limit is at stake, it seems best to make it explicit and used it as a starting point given that the underlying circumstances are not known. Otherwise we risk our reasoning to go astray and become unbound.
