    Are the laws of physics in the cosmere Spiritually based?

    Brandon Sanderson

    They... The laws of physics in the cosmere are ours except where they have been changed by Spiritual influence. So I guess you could say "yes."

    Borderlands SF-AU Tour (Paraphrased)


    One other speed bubble question. Is the speed of light the same inside and outside a speed bubble?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Um, yes. The speed of light is the same. Good question, you’re trying to figure out the FTL.


    Also, it would eliminate the redshift if the speed of light…

    Brandon Sanderson

    If the speed of light were similar . That’s one thing we considered, but it felt too non-intuitive, plus it’s just not how I imagined things working. So, no it is not, but that’s a good question. It is something we considered.


    I just want to setup a lab in a speed bubble and do fun things.


    [Necarion’s note: there would be no redshift if the speed of light were directly proportional to the ‘speed of time’. Alas this theory doesn’t seem to be valid]
