    Is it possible that light doesn't 'propagate' in a vacuum?

    jdavel said "I don't understand what this means. Does your satement, "...'apparent distance' is the result of interaction." mean the same thing as, interaction causes 'apparent distance'?" Well...yes. Further on I've tried to explain it a bit more clearly. Not sure how...

    Is it possible that light doesn't 'propagate' in a vacuum?

    This is where the other stuff I am thinking about sort of fit's in. My thought is that all 'matter' in the universe exists in a infinitesimal/zero dimensional point as something analogous but not the same as light, in that it can exist in the same physical space, and that 'apparent distance' is...

    Is it possible that light doesn't 'propagate' in a vacuum?

    I'm certainly not refuting anything. It all works out the way it works out. The calculations all seem to work out (to the extent that they are fairly accurate with a bit of uncertainty thrown in). No major problem there. The emission of a photon and the absorption at a 'distance' doesn't happen...

    Is it possible that light doesn't 'propagate' in a vacuum?

    Just in case you couldn't tell, in the words of a famous philosopher "I have no professional training". I'm just playing around with ideas. Mmmm, unfortunately I put the cart before the horse and forgot to mention that the other part of the hypothesis is that the apparent distance between...

    Is it possible that light doesn't 'propagate' in a vacuum?

    I have been thinking again about a Hypothesis that I have been getting together for a while now. I say hypothesis because I don't have enough ability to develop it into something one could call a theory in the mathematical sense of the term. I know people hate that but life doesn't always go to...

    Light and Gravitational Force: What Prevents Orbit?

    Given that light can be pulled in by a large gravitational force, what would stop light being pulled by the gravitational force of a galaxy or group of galaxies or another gravitational body and being pulled into an orbit? Raavin :wink:
