Femtotechnology will allow us to manufacture custom subatomic particles from quarks. Once we can make femtotech, we will be able to do just about anything, including rewrite the laws of physics.


I THINK we would need to go down the planck scale for that Femtotechnology might be able to manipulate energy itself then we can go further down to attotechnology

It's not a matter of proving FTL to be theoretically possible (which could be done in the next 1-3 centuries if indeed it is theoretically possible). There's the issue of creating the quantities of mass-energy required (hundreds of kilograms at a time) and engineering the actual devices that can create an Alcubierre warp. That's the part that will probably take 1 to 2 thousand years.

Can't we just create exotic particles like tachyons using attotechnology ? That would be literal instead of effective FTL

You can't just throw random buzzwords and expect them to mean something.

I mean wouldn't attotechnology or even yoctotechnology enable creating new types of exotic particles and elements with bizzare properties ?

It's just numbers. It's not even clear if there's any such thing, let alone the properties that would result.

In other words it is too hypothetical
