You keep saying non-newtonian, but it's really special relativity that's the problem here - speed of light being an absolute speed limit and energy requirements going up exponentially as you approach c is the issue. If it was just newton's laws you could keep accelerating past c and get there much faster and with less energy.

I believe there is a big difference between being introverted and having social anxiety - I think I qualify for both descriptions but I see them as two separate things. Being introverted just means you need alone time and don't crave so much social interaction. Social anxiety is a paralyzing fear that prevents you from being able to interact socially even when you want/need to. Lots of introverts are happy being introverts but I have a hard time believing that anyone with social anxiety wouldn't desire a cure.
