Supposedly, time slows down as you approach the speed of light.
Therefore, does time exist for a photon? When a photon leaves
a transitioning electron, does time not pass for the photon until
it is absorbed by another electron (maybe Billions of our years
later) at which point it ceases to exist.
Sorry - entered all my questions in the wrong area of science....
