This doesn't make any sense to me.

Everything we learn about temperature, heat, and energy says that absolute zero is unreachable.
Theoretically time would stop at absolute zero (being that there would be no energy).

The way I understood it (I think I have the right idea..)was by thinking of it in terms of Charles's law. When a gas is heated it expands..so the higher the energy/temperature the more the particles in the gas repel each other. So temperature can be thought of as how strongly the particles push each other away, with absolute zero being the point where they no longer are going to repel each other as they don't move. Going below that to sub-zero K temperatures (which they did with magnetism somehow), the molecules actually attract each other. So instead of pushing each other away..they pull each other closer..the attraction getting stronger the further below zero the "temperature" gets.

If Einstein was correct in that he said that matter cannot travel faster than light, doesn't that mean there's a limit to how hot something gets? The subatomic movement is so fast that it reaches c? That would take a tremendous amount of energy though. Think of it as an opposite of absolute zero.
