I am writing this on the curiosity of the results of a theoretical experiment. Imagine a photon moving thorugh space. It is moving freely through three dimentions and time. Using the Lorentz contraction we can only know approximately where it will be in 3 dimentions for a given time and speed. Now imagine taking 2 panes of glass that are infinitely smooth, and sandwiching the photon between them. The panes are the exact width of the photon apart, so now the photon can only move in two dimentions and time. Let's take it one step further and bring two more sides in so the photon can now only move in one dimention and time. Imagine it's in a tube the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

exact circumference of the photon itself. How would this photon move in one dimention? Could it's exact location for a given time and speed now be predicted? :surprised
