Where does the photon "live" What happens to space-time when you remove the time? Its said that the photon experiences no time, it seems to be generally accepted that a photon is emitted by one atom and then instantly absorbed by another in its reference frame but this seems paradoxical. If it was emitted by an atom and then never experienced time it would exist forever. The very fact it is created and then destroyed suggests it must experience time. Is it that the distance between the atom that emits it and the atom that absorbs it is zero or does it occupy all of "space?" until its absorbed? How is it waving in our reference frame? We observe an electric field that creates a magnetic field and so it propagates as a wave, but in its frame there is no time and without time an electric field cannot create a magnetic field!! change requires time. Does this mean its both waves at once until we observe it? When photons are created they radiate outwards as a wave but it can only be detected at one point in space, this is also crazy because it would suggest that if you were in a room with a light bulb and you put a photon detector at any point in the room it should absorbed all the photons leaving the rest of the room dark. If the laws of nature have courts then the photon should stand trial for giving me headaches.
