    Einstein

    According to the theory of relativity (both special and general), the faster you move, the slower you appear to be moving from your opponent's point of view.

    or is it the other way around?

      I thought is was the faster you move the slower they appear to be moving. Or is that what you just said?

        Isn't relativity theory only applicable to large scales? I dunno, I'm no scientist. All I know is that Einstein was so smart, he didn't even know how smart he was. Even his mistakes were brilliant.

          Well, your time slows down as you move faster. So if I move very fast, then you age more than I do...so yeah, I appear to be going slower

            The faster you move through space the slower you move through time.

              Mr Mantis,

              It is applicable to all moving object through space. However, the theory of relativity heavily crashes with quantum mechanics. So at a molecular level, there seems to be no set rules...

              Superstring theory is trying to mend both.

              In any case, relativity would affect a moving person, or even a fist flying through the air. I wonder by how much? Can anyone calculate the time variance?

                Right, your energy is either "spent" in time or in space

                      Both great books...but I'm not a scientist

                          Err... No your enemy would not see it, time slows down for you, not for other people.

                          Basically your opponent would seem slow.

                            Einstein's shit applies at relatavistic velocities (relative, remember!)

                              Two bodies in relative motion are able to perceive time dialation! Read the Elegant Universe!!!
