But isnt the whole point, my mass is already imaginary until you imagine me. You dont exist until you exist. Same thing with the electrons behaving like waves, and full circle to duality.Your mass would become imaginary, since it would involve the square root of a negative number .
But note that the time, from the photon's point-of-view, is instantaneous, since time goes to zero for anything traveling at the speed of light.What boggles my mind (and it doesn't take much) is that a single photon, emitted from some single sun in some far distant galaxy, can traverse (at C) unfathomable distances and in a bee line to us on Earth. And it does so over the course of millions (if not billions of years), never losing any of its velocity or energy until it hits an electron in my retina.
Correct which is why Time is a nonsense invention by man to try and explain something. Unlike Light Time is not a constant, the decay rate of a isotope may be, but a atomic clock would end up with July being in winter eventually, worse still depending on your elevation would dictate how far off it would be.But note that the time, from the photon's point-of-view, is instantaneous, since time goes to zero for anything travelling at the speed of light.
So when my teacher bitches I am late for school, I remind her that time isnt a constant so she cant prove I am later or early. All she can do is point to a clock and tell me according to that I am late, but I could point to my watch and show her I wasnt because I had altered it. If time isnt a real constant then you cant say which is correct, the clock or the watch.
Or I could just tell her in the quantum world I am not late as I was there all along.
