I was trying to envision the universe from the standpoint of a photon and it seems that based on the Lorentz contraction:
LaTeX Code: L = L_{0}\\sqrt{1-u^2/c^2}
since u = c this implies that, from the photons point of view, the length of the universe in the photons direction of travel contracts to zero.
Moreover, based on time dialation
LaTeX Code: \\bar{t} = \\frac{t}{\\sqrt{1-u^2/c^2}}
since u = c any time t-bar measured by an observer will correspond to a zero time measurement by the photon.
Does all this mean that a photon observes itself as stuck timeless and stationary on a 2D sheet?
This just seems like a curious state of affairs and I was wondering if my reasoning was correct.

    The Lord, intent on the regeneration of the
    world, communicated Vedas through
    Hiranya-garbha. Then, Hiranyagarbha, in
    turn, passed them on to His Ten Manasaputhras (Sons
    born out of the mind) including Athri and Marichi. From
    them, the Vedas spread among humanity, handed down
    from one generation to another. As time passed, ages
    accumulated and continents moved. Some Vedas got lost,
    or were neglected as too difficult for comprehension and
    only Four have survived into modern times. These Four
    were taught by Vedavyasa, the greatest among the
    exponents of the Vedas, to his disciples in the Dwapara
