So in order for me to move at a rate close to the speed of light, I have to become less dense?

The other way around, Jim. As your speed increases relative to a point your mass also increases relative to the same point. Time, however, slows down. So, even though you become more dense, you have more time to think about things. Everything balances.

Perhaps Jim it is better stated that if we all lighten up we'll get further faster.  

And since I'm moving at no where near light speed I don't have time right now to go back and fill in all the things I should have explained in my last post -- sorry guys -- perhaps someone else would take the mantle until I can get back to it...

I think I hear some polemics calling
