We have to beg off. It is not possible to move at the speed of light
unless you happen to be light. If we tried to answer this question, we
would end up saying all sorts of nonsense.
Still, it's a good question to wonder about. Einstein started
wondering about the same question when he was young, and it ultimately
led him to the understanding of why the question can't be answered.
