Re: FTLparticles

"All FTL particles are hypothetical and in theory can't go slower than "c", if they did exist."

Not exactly. FTL particles could theoretically travel slower than c as well as faster. They just can't travel exactly at c, meaning they couldn't slow down through c to subluminal speeds. If they had a way to instantly change speed without going through all speeds in between then they could travel slower than c as well as faster.
