Kantor's information mechanics links phenomena previously regarded as not treatable by a single theory. It is used here to calculate the maximum velocitiesν m of single particles. For the electron,ν m/c≈1−1.253814×10−77. The maximumν m corresponds toν m/c≈1−1.097864×10−122 for a single mass particle with a rest mass of 3.078496×10−5g. This is the fastest that matter can move. Either information mechanics or classical mechanics can be used to show thatν m is less for heavier particles. Thatν m is less for lighter particles can be deduced from an information mechanics argument alone.
