Combining two equations of Special Relativity yields the following relationship of mass, energy and velocity:
First,
put
into
and get
Then, normalize with respect to velocity and get:

v = c
v = c
Since “negative” quantities are not well understood,
only the upperright quadrant represents the “TriSpace” universe.

For a given absolute energy at any point in space, three possible sets of physical laws simultaneously exist, each defining a unique
spacial realm.

How can TriSpace allow for FTL travel?
2) Process converts superluminal energy into mass and subluminal mass into energy.
1) Create a “field” to force subluminal quarks into superluminal space.
3) Superluminal mass can now travel FTL in superluminal space by field interaction with “stationary” EM radiation.
Vessel traverses subluminal space while traveling through superluminal space
4) When the destination is reached, the field reverses polarity to force superlight quarks back into subluminal space.

Dark Matter is proposed to be mass in superluminal space that can only be“seen” by its repulsive gravitational energy in subluminal space.

Inertia is resultant effect when an object “climbs” out of its own primary gravity well and is generated when spacetime resists changes in its topography.
