I still really don't understand how we can always have seen, and always WILL see the "light" from the Big Bang. As I understand it, looking farther and farther "out" is like looking back in time. But since the Big Bang is a sort of boundary in how far back we can see, how come the light from it hasn't all passed by us completely yet, or won't ever someday? Wouldn't that imply an infinite number of photons coming past us? And I mean if a person projects a finite movie onto a screen moving away from him at just under the speed of light, the movie (as seen by someone stationary inertially to the screen) on the screen still has to end SOMETIME doesn't it?
