would that person go into the future?why? also if i travel 1,000,000 m/s on earth and my friend travels 20m/s per second on earth would we experience 2 different time frame? so basically the second question is if someone travels a different speed than me on earth whether the difference of speed is drastic or minuscule would we experience different time frames?( i dont care how small the different time frame is either)

ithink you mean 300,000 km/s or 300,000,000 metres per second.

No. It is impossible to reach that speed in the way you mean it.
you would both experience the normal passage of time but YOU would see the rest of the world moving strangely.

Take away the law that i can't reach the speed of light

So, you want to know what the theory that says you can't reach the speed of light will predict if you ignore it and say you do reach the speed of light? You'll see invisible purple unicorns or whatever else you want to imagine that also doesn't exist.

What do you do when the traffic light shows blue? You cannot take away only one statement of a self consistent theory (in particular a statement which is derived from the theory's basic assumptions) and expect the theory to give you an answer. It is logically inconsistent.

Also, we are constantly travelling forward in time. I am doing it and you are doing it right now. The problem comes when you want to go back.

That's bizarre, everybody knows the invisible unicorn is pink.

Standard convention for historical reasons.

The original question has been answered and the thread is slipping off-topic. I am therefore going to close the thread.
