Hi.. In astronomy we know that when we observe a distant star that we are seeing it the way it looked a long time ago, how long is dependent on the speed of light and the distance between us and that star. It might not even be in existence anymore. Does physics apply the same logic to our "everyday sensory experience? As I sit here looking across the room at a picture in a frame, even though the distance is small, am I seeing it as it was in the very near past? would a phycisist tell me that is an immeadiate experience of the picture frame as it actually "is", as opposed to "was?"
