Is the concept of traveling at or beyond the speed of light
related to travel through time? If so, how?
Theoretically, if you could travel at the speed of light, you
would experience no passage of time! This is because of the time-dilation
effect of Einstein`s Special Theory of Relativity that states that at
velocities approaching the speed of light, c, your perception of time is
proportional to the square root of ( 1 - v^2 / c^2 ) which goes to zero.
