Albert Einstein pointed out that all things(except the speed of light) are relative. So time at the speed of light is relative to that speed. You can only see(and Feel) a difference from an observation point that has a different frame of reference. In other words, time would have slowed down for the observer that wasn`t moving that fast, but the person moving at that speed would of felt no slowing of time at all. On the Contrary! That observer would believe that either time sped up for everyone else, or they were left behind while time went on.
