    Well, think of it this way: When you're sitting on a train and another train heads towards you, the train is moving doubly fast from your perspective. Things get similarly tricky when you are travelling close to the speed of light. Remember, all your visuals are based on information travelling towards you at the speed of light... You're basically seeing things that are warped because it wasn't really there a second ago. This only applies when you're getting close to the speed of light. We measure our space by what we see, and if we are travelling close to the speed of the incoming information, things get a little tricky.
