Thought some of you guys might be interested to read this Paper examining the possibilites of "the laws of nature" actually changing over time. It's a very technical read but well worth the effort

Cliffs:
Scientists observing light from distant quasars suggest that the speed of light has increased over time.

Our entire understanding of space and time could be dramatically altered. :eek:
