Much as I am fond of QM, I never liked much SR from an aesthetical POV, let
alone the severe limitations it seems to impose as far as the realm of
possibilities is concerned.
But I came with years to appreciate its consistency and to some extent its
"unavoidability", so I am quite at loss for the time being in assessing the
conceptual consequences of an even marginal falsification of the theory...
But, hey, I am just a poor lawyer. Let's theorical physicists and science
philosophers have their day. :-)
