      Abstract

      Relativity and Quantum Theory both set finite limits on certain physical quantities. For relativity it is the speed of light. For Quantum Theory it is the discrete quantity of energy which translates into a minimal uncertainty in the action. This paper investigates consequences of placing barriers on other physical quantities, notably acceleration, density and the length of a time quantum.
