A photon doesn't seem to "experience" time, so does it really "experience" space? "Experience" is probably not the best word to use here but, if light doesn't move, would entanglement be explained. As if (we/slow moving objects) move in between aspects of the (photon/light)? What I'm imagining is light as a (marker of where mass was at some point in time/disturbance in space-time). I don't understand how it could really ever be separated from that point in time. An object that emits light would actually be an object that disturbed space-time. The object itself must move away from that point in time, while the light is anchored there. Our perception of an entangled photon is that we affect it here, and its entangled partner is affected instantaneously over there. But if we were observing from the (perspective/"experience") of light, would there be any difference between here and there, or is the effect happening to two aspects of the same thing in the same place and time? In thinking of this I also wondered if the strings in string theory could be the mathematical description of an event horizon. The most energetic electro- magnetic waves come from near a black hole, which is a massive disturbance in space-time. Would this help explain dark matter and the expansion (or, in this case, implosion) of the universe?
