Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

comment Perception when Moving at the seed of light?
Did you mean a person moves at almost the speed of light rather than at the speed of light? Since it's impossible to move at the speed of light your question is likely to be closed as it stands.
