Lately, I've been reading over the theories of relativity and special relativity and the impossibility of reaching the speed of light. I found all of this fascinating, and so I kept on in my studies. I then began taking a closer look at time dilation. The theory behind time dilation , as interpreted by me, is that since light is at light speed, it is stuck in time. This bothered me further when I read that objects going at the speed of light are supposed to flatten and squish until they are infinitely thin (this was backed up by one of Einsteins equations). The point about that that bothered me, is that no two units of matter may coexist in the same space. If light its stuck in time, then the distances from "lights" point of view are null. This would mean that every photon coexists within the same space. Does that mean that there is only one photon that we all share? Or am I just missing some blatantly obvious point.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
