Wikipedia wrote: Unlike fluorescence or emission spectra that have characteristic spectral peaks, Cherenkov radiation is continuous. Around the visible spectrum, the relative intensity per unit frequency is approximately proportional to the frequency. That is, higher frequencies (shorter wavelengths) are more intense in Cherenkov radiation. This is why visible Cherenkov radiation is observed to be brilliant blue. In fact, most Cherenkov radiation is in the ultraviolet spectrum—it is only with sufficiently accelerated charges that it even becomes visible; the sensitivity of the human eye peaks at green, and is very low in the violet portion of the spectrum
physics forums wrote: The identification of an "emitter" and a "detector" depends on the frame of reference. You can think of the tachyon's presence at the emitter as one space-time event and its presence at the detector as another. The key here is that the space-time interval between these events is space-like, not time-like. That means that while one observer sees the "emission" event occurring before the "detection" event, you can easily find other reference frames in which the "detection" event comes first (and so you could claim that the tachyon moved backwards in time in that frame, although that's arbitrary, since its direction in time is not absolute). There will also be a frame in which they are simultaneous. In that frame the tachyon actually exists at all points along its path simultaneously, which is kind of what you'd expect for events that have space-like separations.
Wikipedia wrote:According to Larry 3000, an android time cop, "time is like a rope", and, as it is woven at one end, ages and gradually unravels and frays at the other. In the context of the show, this often means that historical figures have made different, and often anachronistic, choices in life (see free will), and as such will not be able to fulfill the role that history says they fulfilled.

My guess would be that Dr X had a hand in whatever caused the time squad to come into existence. I do like Tenshi's suggestion of how the stop gap created here is what ultimately led to the creation of time squad though. I guess that I am agreeing with him since the bomb was made by Dr. X.

At least that's the thing I remember the most from BR about the split between GT and PpGD.
Wikipedia wrote: A charged tachyon traveling in a vacuum therefore undergoes a constant proper time acceleration and, by necessity, its worldline forms a hyperbola in space-time. However, as we have seen, reducing a tachyon's energy increases its speed, so that the single hyperbola formed is of two oppositely charged tachyons with opposite momenta (same magnitude, opposite sign) which annihilate each other when they simultaneously reach infinite speed at the same place in space. (At infinite speed the two tachyons have no energy each and finite momentum of opposite direction, so no conservation laws are violated in their mutual annihilation. The time of annihilation is frame dependent.)

Okay, we are going to have to do some serious Quantum Physics here.
We can see in the second panel that the bomb does not seem to affect space
so it must change the time parameter of reality within itself.
Consider that, indeed, time and space are one thing.
I have a theory that time cannot exist without space BUT space could exist without time.
If there were only space then nothing would change and we would be stuck in a never-ending moment
until, somehow, time were to start again. In the real world, if time were to do this, we would never notice it. This is what the bomb may be able to do, stop or destroy time.
So why would Dr X do this? Who knows? He and the council may have found a way to be immune to this.
They could set up an empire on Earth in literally "no time" and then start time again, with everyone as slaves.
....Sorry. I'm babbling again, aren't I?
OOOOO I love this. You're SO close. SO Close. nyoro~n ¦:3
but remember that spacetime being one thing means you can't simply create a scenario where one exists and not the other and not have the flipside, it just means you have to stretch how you perceive reality. perhaps the universe is solipsism with every particle passing through one singularity invoking all possibilities in this dimensionless singularity wherein your perspective takes place, and eventually the perspective of all events in reality that we perceive as happening in "other spaces".
fun shit to think about, the whole "there's only one electron in the universe, it's just time-travelling really well" thing.
i can give you a hint.
the bombs rely on gravity wells. i've been doin my quantum physics buffing, and the bombs have to be unique in design and execution. the earth and moon are now being subjected to energy fields that are changing something in their local spacetime.
In the coming chapters, someone will leave the earth. it'll give a big hint as to what is going on, if you're versed in space.
but plz don't like. post in the thread something i can't respond to, tho :X if you're right i can't just say YA! GJ.

really thin gridfire, if i am interpreting the idea of it correctly. if not, then. um. no. :x

In scenario 1 (below), Jack causes the split while still in the Distant Future. After a series of events, he lands in either GT Megaville or PPGD Megaville.
In scenario 2 (below), Jack manages to travel to the past. However he lands in Megaville, instead of Feudal Japan. His actions in Megaville cause the timeline to branch into either GT Megaville or PPGD Megaville.
The third possibility involves Jack doing something while in Feudal Japan to cause the split (Didn't feel like making that one :p).
Personally, I've been leaning towards scenario 2. At least, that is how I've been imagining the story unfolding. However, I started thinking about other possibilities after reading your response.
His success/failure in killing Aku is what I believe could have contributed to the Time Squad not existing. If Aku were to survive, then I doubt that he would risk the possibility of humans unlocking the mysteries of time travel. After all, Aku is capable of sending whomever he wishes to whichever point in time that he pleases. If humans were to somehow grasp the concept of time travel, and Jack were to discover it, then he (Jack) could simply go back to the second after he was forced to come to the distant future, and kill Aku while he was at his weakest. It gets confusing, however, when you think about why Jack wouldn't want to kill Aku (if he found a way back to the past). Mercy? Or was it due to outside interference? Or did Aku simply force Jack to go to GT Megaville before the final blow was struck? That's all I have so far. At the very least, it could explain why Clockwork exists in GT timeline, but the Time Squad doesn't exist.
