When we approach light speed, Einstein predicts
a perception of elongation of some dimensions
(ie. width, height and depth) due to the relativistic qualities of Universe.
Isn't it interesting that even at 25 kph,
those same dimensions appear to change proportion
as they are perceived with one eye closed?
