  • RE: Invariable Speed of Light

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This reply is inspired by their article’s reference to “the large magnitude of the speed of light“.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The fault with Variable-Speed-of-Light theories is the assumption that photons travel at the speed of light. As Paul Camp, Ph.D. in theoretical physics, writes at https://www.quora.com/How-big-is-a-photon -
    "A photon is a quantum of excitation of the electromagnetic field. That field fills all space and so do its quantum modes."
    This is consistent with energy being transferred from one place to another (as wave motion) without involving an actual transfer of particles (little or no movement of photons). If the speed of light is actually the speed of shock waves which excite photons, the more or less stationary photons would have no speed or, in other words, invariant speed. Referring to the speed of the shock waves as the speed of light means speed can vary depending on whether an observer moves toward, or away from, a light beam. Gluons, whose quantum spin is 1, are restricted in their travel through space-time (particle physics uses the word “confined”). The same relative fixation applies to the short-range weak-force bosons of spin...
