This note discusses an absurdity that is rooted in the modern physics interpretation of Einstein’s relativistic mass formula when v is very close to c. Modern physics (and Einstein himself) claimed that the speed of a mass can never reach the speed of light. Yet at the same time they claim that it can approach the speed of light without any upper limit on how close it could get to that special speed. As we will see, this leads to some absurd predictions. Because even if a material system cannot reach the speed of light, an important question is then, “How close can it get to the speed of light?” Is there really no clear-cut bound on the exact speed limit for an electron, as an example? Key words: Relativistic mass, maximum velocity of subatomic particles, boundary condition, Haug maximum velocity.
