Time and light

I want to know why time slows down at velocities equal to the velocities of light and at high gravitational fields .I need a physical and somewhat mathematical reason for this

Time is the 'interval of events' as there are many things happening around here. But, c is the speed at which spacetime interval differences are zero. As one nears the speed of light, the object will be passing the intervals in a much lesser time. Fahad Shihab · 3 years, 10 months ago
