    When the menos grande flashed their light onto Aizen and other captains, the other captains seemed to evade the light extremely fast. Does this mean they are faster than light?

    If you dodged a lightbulb, would you be faster than light?

    Agito is right.
    Nope, not at all. That'd depend on whether the bulb was thrown at you at the speed of light, right?

    It isn't light because
    1) Light is something that exists in the material world and follows the rules set down by the material world.

    2) Just in case you noticed, they ain't on Earth but in Soul Society where classical Physics need not apply.

    3) I vote for amorphous energy. Anime has a lot of it.

    And even if it was light, they could have just had a faster reaction time than the Menos Grande.

    To "dodge" a bullet you don't have to dodge a small chunk of lead travelling at supersonic velocities; you just have to arrange it that the person firing fires where you aren'y

    That's all I made of it.

    They (Soi Fon, Yoruichi, Shuuhei and Rangiku) were all warned so they were able to escape before the light struck.

    Are you sure you've been given enough reason to say classical physics need not apply? Just cos they're in Soul Society?

    Like Kickero has said twice, and which I tried to imply in my first post, it wasn't light. Not all things that are visible and bright/light emitting are light. An explosion is bright and emits light, but it doesn't travel at the speed of light. It was essentially a brightly lit glass tube that separates dimensions.

    the even more important point is that all the vice captains moved out the way before negation was even emitted so being faster than light is out of the question whether its light or not.

    And yes negacion is a beam of light.

    The way Negashion breaks through the sky, we're given the impression it's not a ray of light.

    Lol. Just that in the anime, from what we see with our own eyes...if it was really a light, it wouldn't have broken through the sky like a sword. We see the tip of the beam. If it was a beam of light we shouldn't see that.

    I need a screenshot to explain.

    Spoiler: Not a light ray...
    Notice the third one piercing the sky. A ray of light would have already reached the ground by then.

    Not to mention the so-called light BREAKS the GROUND...

    I think 'glowing tube' is an apt description.
