Hi, I've been asking questions about light here for years, and I still don't understand the limit of propagation of light, does anyone have advanced on this field?

I really would like someone to explain me how it's possible for light to propagate forever, since it's probably emitted in perfect circles departing from a certain point of source. So the circle get's bigger and bigger as far as it moves from its original point of source. So let's think about the ammount of energy that is contained in these circles. It's irrational to affirm that the circle of light will get bigger and bigger forever as it moves from its original point without affecting the ammount of energy that it's cointained in it.

The circle probably starts thick and it gets thinner and thinner as long as it moves...and someday it will vanish. It simply doesn't make sense to me for a circle that can grow on an infinite way without any consequences... help me guys, this question has been disturbing me in the late years.
