The relationship between relativity and time and the speed of light is something I don't yet comprehend perfectly, I'm hoping someone can clear up a
few queries I have, and perhaps explain this to me well?
The way I see it, if you move at the speed of light, for some reason time never arrives is the accepted theory?
Or time stands still, or less time passes?
This feels incorrect to me, rather you would simply never see it happen, just like if you were moving at or faster than the speed of sound, you'd
never hear a gunshot from behind you, although the bullet might go faster than you.
I can imagine riding a laser, you'd never be able to see wehre the laser originally shon from, but someone in the path of the laser would see that
clearly, and you could see them, until you moved past them or impacted upon them.
I have the feeling you would never notice any movement anywhere except in the direction you are moving towards?
I've been thinking about the big galaxy in the picture of the huge universe, with regard to that being physically impossible, and something about
that... 13 billion light years away, 800 million years old, what effects would dark matter and gravity distortion and so forth have on the light we
see, could that make that seem different?
I realise this is a little unclear, but I'd appreciate some help with these ideas anyhow
