##### Box theory of a clear line of sight?

Quote from: evan
We can verify that there is a transparent path for the entire distance between the Sun and our eye.

In theory, we could tell if an opaque object crosses the path between the Sun and our eye; in practice, a potentially devastating meteorite 10km across would be totally lost in the bright glare of the Sun. It is much easier to spot the reflected glow of a dark meteorite against the blackness of space than it is to spot the dark side of a meteorite against the glare of the Sun.

You can verify we can see the entire transparent path , so you can see the start point and end point of the photons journey through this transparent path?

Game over........We can ''see'' ''light'' in the ''empty space'', ''light'' which has not even entered our eyes.

Let us do this scenario, you are (a) and the sun is (b)
Quote
Reminder: Light travels from the source (Sun) to detector (your eye). The direction is (b) to (a).
Your mathematical notation implies the Greek idea that something travels from your eye to the Sun.

Quite clearly my last question that was deleted ''stumped'' you.

If you was on the Sun you could see the Earth , ''light'' is bi-directional so I don't think it matters which way around we express it , but for the saving of argument

so we can say ? Xcls=a0b
Quote from: Evan
No. This notation suggests that there is an undefined point 0, and the light from the Sun travels to point 0, and then travels from there to your eye.

My explanation , explains that 0 is an undefined distance/length of ''empty'' space between (a) and (b), you are trying to be ''awkward'',

Quote from: Evan
So I suggest that we cannot usefully say Xcls=a0b, when we are talking about empty space.

As long as we both know what we are talking about, we can define what we want as long as we reach an understanding and it is represented.

this -
Quote from: box
Now if we say that 0=unknown length, how much of the length between do we see?
is quite readable  from my earlier post .

You seem to be avoiding a very simple question....

Something that is marked with a ? is not a new theory, it is a question, a clear line of sight is not a new theory and the question I asked you failed to answer or rather removed in failure to answer.  A school boy laughs at sciences failure to answer and avoid a simple question.

Yes or no, do you or do you not see the entirety of the length of space between you and the sun?

yes

YOU ARE SO ARROGANT AND THINK YOU ARE BETTER THAN ME IN SOME WAY , WHEN REALLY YOU ARE JUST NAIVE AND BELIEVE THE PREACHING YOU PREACH.

YOU ARE WRONG NOT I.......
