Re: Speed of Light = Speed of Gravity
Because they are both massless. Everything massless moves right along the "edge" of these gaps/shortest paths in spacetime. Since it's the shortest path through spacetime there's no quicker way to move than that. Humans can imagine shorter paths, i.e. FTL ones, because we don't correctly intuit the actual shape of the universe. It's like how there is no shorter way to move along the surface of the Earth than going along a great circle.

Oh cool, it suddenly clicks into place! No guarantee, I will get it an hour from now, though.

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain all this to us, it means a lot!!
