    I'm going to try to do it in one day
    according to string theory and the laws of quantum physics it is doable
    but I may have to skip lunch

    I believe your mission to be impossible to do!

    At 1400 moves per month, it would take you almost 47 years. Good luck!

    all I would have to do is find a way to travel at or near the speed of light and I could slow the tick of time
    theoretically possible

    I had the formula for determining the slowdown of time based on how fast one was traveling but I don't remember it
    maybe one of the science geeks could help out

    You've already got a helluva admirable record as it stands.

    For a subscriber you don’t seem to get much value for money in terms of numbers of moves.

    I think another 6 months and I will be closing in on 1,000,000

    I think the golden number for moves a month would be around 2,778.

    30 X 12 is 360 (months in 30 years).

    2,778 x 360 = 1,000,080

    In thirty years, making just 2,778 months consistently, you will reach a million.

    So, to do it in half the time, 5,556 moves per month. One third the time would require 8,334 mpm.

    1/4th (7.5 years) = 11,112 mpm

    A handful of people consistently clear 11k moved a month, and one user, TexasNurse, consistently clears 30k moves a month. That's a thousand moves a day, of course.

    Consider that some amount of the time you may be a retired fellah with more time and just try to get close to 3k moves per month and see what you need in 20 years is what I'm going for (and failing to do miserably), lol.

    Dude, it's a time dilation thing. The faster 'you' go, the slower time passes.

    All you need to do is play your chess moves while traveling at 95% the speed of light. (1 year for you would then equate to about 3.2 years for everybody else).

    I could lend one of my rockets?

    I believe traveling at 99.9 percent the speed of light could make a year equal to a day which would be plenty of time to make a million moves

    He "flies" the flag of the Vatican City State, so maybe he's the Pope, in disguise, and will have his minions move 24/7, drastically shortening the time frame. 🤔

    That does sound more realistic! 😉

    Sir, I stubbornly challenge your mathematical prowess.
