    you go at 1 m/s in ten seconds you run 10 m

    you go at 1 m/s2 and you calculate distance

    but how do you calculate distance with an acelerated aceleration with 1 m/s3

    and with 1 m/s4 and so on

    Integrate. BTW, the third time derivative of position is called jerk.

    lets suppose you go at such proportion of c that your time passes by half fast

    to obtain distance run before you reach c how would you find out distance run taking into account times acelerates

    would you derivate time in the equation or what?

    im suspicious on this way acelerating time to the minus what ever you could reach transfinity before reaching c

    Things aren't so simple if you're talking about relativistic velocities. You have to take in to account that the speed isn't increasing linearly.

    so time decelerates is not that sudenly goes slower but it decelerates

    but if you acelerate the aceleration at relativvistic speeds youll decelerate a decelerating time, and the limit to decelerate time is 0 speed of time at light speed unreachable but you can close as much as you will

    you can kind of see that in two seconds of the traveller eternity can happen on earth

    then what happens in second 3 for the traveller?

    I think it only tends towards infinity, so any arbitrary length of time for the traveler would still only equal a time that tends towards infinity for the other guy.

    but take a look at the limits math:

    we agree that as the traveller approaches light speed his time decelerates, the change of speed of time is not sudden but constantly decelerated

    so in earth the traveller perceives one second of earth as one second of his life but as he starts his aceleration towards light speed 1 second of earth will be half for him then 1 sec of earth will be a quarter for him then an eight and so on never reaching 0, never reaching light speed

    but you can kind of see that after one second of his life using the concept of limit eternity has happened on earth

    so in second two of his life he will have reached transfinity

    No, because at the same time he would have had to read light speed for that to be true, which can't happen unless his ship has infinite energy.

    well if the ship has infinite mass as it aproaches light speed so it does its fuel so it has infinite nergy to acelerate

    imo from earth the traveller will go frozen in time at a constant c speed but from the traveller theres no limit in the velocity he achives as it apears as like to go faster as to decelerate in time

    so after x amount of aceleration of the traveller he needs not to reach c as is not reached 0 in the sucession 1 0.5 0.25 0.125... in which time would be decelrating

    so for example sending a ship which will reach near c speed in almost exactly one year at 1 g may grant humaity reaching the transfinite or to go to whatever time in the future you will

    You're forgetting to state "relative to" what. When I read your post, it's like you are saying, "What's the difference between a duck?"
