    Idea: any two events of human death are separated by time-like interval. Namely, events of death are in causal connection.

    Suppose in London the Bob died at 12PM. And the Miss Linda in Paris at 13PM. I argue, that the Angel of Death, moving with light speed through the inner of the Earth, from Bob's death can arrive at Paris prior to Linda's death.

    Thus guaranteeing the Angel of Death must be made of some sub-quantum particles or some hitherto undetected substance. Also it explains why Death never gives any information, since information may only travel at the speed of light. By extension the Angel of Death contains no classical information though it may have some sort of 'Death information' which can travel faster than light.

    If Bob died at 12pm in London and Miss Linda in Paris at 13pm, death must be slow because you could fly there faster than that. Just saying.

    It is your fiction. You can make it as meaningul or as senseless as you want, and with any degree of internal consistency that you like.

    Sounds like the plot for 1950's sci fi/horror flick.

    uhhhh…...no

    consider that becoming light
    has a rule

    you simply disappear
    and a second latter you are 186,262 miles away

    and only a few forms of light are said to pass through the earth altogether
    I think it's cosmic rays that can do that

    Isaac Asimov wrote a science fiction story of two rivals working on anti gravity
    the story ends with murder

    I won't say how at this moment

    that would be UV light which can't hardly penetrate your skin

    it can....but the effect is superficial
    literally

    13PM? Do you mean either 13:00 (13h00) which is also 1PM
    or 1AM, i.e. and hour after 12PM (midnight)

    Also dont forget timezones, at the moment Paris is GMT+2, London us GMT+1

    Proper notation is 1300 hours in 24 hour or military time.
