From what I understand of Light Speed Theory as an object approaches the speed of light its passage through time is increased.

If this is the case then does this not apply to light itself or is it limited to objects with mass?

If it is the case then:

1. Photons obviously travel at the speed of light therefore their passage through time is faster than our perception.

2. The light from the sun gets here much quicker than we think but it travels forward in time so to us it seems to take longer.
