1. is it appropriate to infer that, for a photon, time and distance do not exist?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. if so, is it therefore appropriate to infer that once a photon is emitted, it's wave function permeates the entire universe immediately?

3. and if so, does our measurement of the "speed of light" at a fixed rate of C imply something peculiar about our own reference frame, ie that our measurement of C may be more reflective of the time required for the wave function to collapse, or some odd aspect of our ability to "measure", rather than the time required for a photon to travel a given distance?
