That is, since its speed in space is the speed of light, and the speed of light is the maximum speed, its speed in time is zero.
Einstein was talking about physical light, but when we are experiencing the inner light, the actual luminosity of our True Nature, we begin to appreciate Einstein’s idea and have an actual experience that is analogous to it, instead of just a theoretical understanding of the idea.
