Ummm... This sounds like Reading Comprehension 101... right there in the summary, you don't even have to RTFA:

this is very different to the slowing effect of passing light through a medium such as glass or water, where the light is only slowed during the time it is passing through the material--it returns to the speed of light after it comes out the other side. The effect of passing the light through the mask is to limit the top speed at which the photons can travel.

Those who claim the dead never return to life haven't ever been around here at quitting time.
