Confused by time dilation!! Ok I know that the faster you travel the slower time becomes for you by outside observers, while time would seem to go by at normal speed for you. What I dont get is that there seems to be missing time for you on the moving vehicle. If everything for you seems to be travelling at normal speed on the outside than what happened to the time that you didnt travel. It seems to me that if you are going near the speed of light, than the outside world would seem to speed up as well, but this would make the speed of light go faster than it should. Since you would be seeing things at a faster rate. So you see my problem I dont seem to grasp where this missing time goes that you cant observe. Its as if when you stop, time would jump on you. I dont know I may be thinking to much but it seems odd to me. Sorry if I sound crazy but I just got off of work and work a night shift. Thanks for any help.
