If everything travels through space-time at exactly the same speed, with the amount of space you travel directly effected by the amount of time you travel, the fact that light has an observable speed would suggest that light might not be the fastest thing in the universe. Because it is not able to travel 100 % in space and 0 % in time... Does that sound right to anyone else?

Nah..
That's what Relativity is about..
The faster something moves through space, the slower they perceive to be moving through time.. (I think that's the right way around!?)

I've had too much drink to decipher it, good luck!

Yes, but I'm suggesting that simply because we can see light move, that it isn't moving completely horizontal across the following graph...

Apparently everything travelling though spacetime does so at exactly the same speed, so imagining time as one physical direction and the three spacial dimensions as just one other, we can show movement through spacetime in a 2d graph.



A TV Stand for example travels mostly through the 'time direction' and hardly through space, whereas light travels mostly through the 'space' direction and hardly through any time. The fact that we can see light, means that it can not be travelling at the fastest possible speed through space, as that would result in it NOT travelling through time at all, we wouldn't see it.

That make sense?

If we could "catch" light... slow it down, and hold it. That would help us understand more.
Does trapped light still "age", or is light beyond time..!??!

We need Kylo Ren to answer that question (Star Wars - Episode VII)...
