I looked for this topic in the FAQs but to my surprise could not find it. The question as to whether or not one can say that light experiences time and distance seems common on the internet, as are answers. The trouble, from the point of view of someone like myself (a hitch-hiker on the scientific journey of discovery) is that conflicting answers can be found. One of the most troubling responses is along the lines that, because one cannot define a frame of reference in which a photon is stationary relative to anything else in the Universe, the question is meaningless and should not be asked. This strikes me as being akin to the following: Where did the Universe come from? God created it. beyond this there is no discussion, which is more than a little restricting where scientific inquiry is concerned. I have formulated some ideas of my own, but as a non-scientist I could be very wide of the mark, so I would appreciate thoughts from the world of science before I go any further.
