# Infinite Photons

Hey since , the electromagnetic force range is infinite
it means that however how far you are from an object you will see it

and we know that for example with a light creating object, if at one time t, lets say a number n of photons are created , they will all become more far apart from each other. If n is not infinite, and one point there should be spaces between 2 photons of the time t photons circle (if object is circle, and if no obstacles)

and since , theres no spaces in reality , an infinite number of photons is created in a time range (t2 - t1) as close as possible to 0 :

therefore, time range : 10^-infinite

so in conclusion it would mean that in an infinitively small amout of time , an infinity of photons is created

how can this be ? or is it just our brains that are not developed enough to understand such things (i mean we can "know" , but its really hard to imaginate and be completely persuaded by this)

There is a confusion here between the electromagnetic force and electromagnetic radiation. It is the latter that propagates through space to allow us to see objects.

This illustrates the problem of visualizing light as a "bunch of photons traveling through space." Photons only need to appear in the description of light when interacting with matter. The photon is not a little bullet traveling through space, being detected only where it can it something. Rather, one has an electromagnetic wave that is spread out over a vast amount of space.
