Tacheons are made up in an attempt to explain some phenomina that are not adaquetly explained, but no one out side of star trek takes them very seriously. Like the photon that tells one electron it has colided with another electron, its a virtual partical that exists only to convey information under the assumption all information needs a partical to convey it.

I defy you to explain how i squared equals -1. I've understood gravity since I was six. It was explained using animated graphics and is really quite simple, and that understanding has yet to stear me wrong. Gravity as acceleration is harder to understand, but most adults don't understand it, so its more a difficult concept then anything realated to maturity. Much of the mysterious world of the quantum is so counter to everyday experience that the older you get and the more everyday experiences you have the harder it gets to understand.
