I have put this in new theories, otherwise I might be banned but it's not so much meant as a new theory as a different interpretation. Unfortunately I have noticed that subjects in this section are far more likely to be ignored or not taken seriously.

"anything traveling at c is traveling backward in time at the rate that time is flowing forward." sounds fun Then we could assume 'c' to be a 'static constant', but what about everything we measure? We do it through that same constant radiation, finding its outcomes/interactions to describe a arrow to us.And you can assume gravity to propagate at 'c', if you want to assign it a 'speed', but not above.Inertia on the other hand, and maybe that was what you thought of there Mike?Depending on how you define it, inertia can be seen as instantaneous if described as some sort of 'interaction' between what experience it and SpaceTime, or seen as obeying 'c' if described as particles/positions in mass acting out their relations versus each other, or as a third possibility, possibly instantaneous there too.But I'm guessing that if we define it to the particles themselves in that rod (expressing time dilations and Lorentz contractions relative each other/ relative any displacements/accelerations) we should be able to measure/calculate a tiny delay showing us that 'inertia' also will obey 'c'.

I have put this in new theories, otherwise I might be banned but it's not so much meant as a new theory as a different interpretation. Unfortunately I have noticed that subjects in this section are far more likely to be ignored or not taken seriously.I believe I would be correct to say that mainstream would maintain that a photon does not experience time. Time for it does not exist.There is I believe another explanation that looks the same.A photon travels backward in time at the same rate that time flows forward.It could be argued that anything traveling faster than c would travel backward in time. Therefore anything traveling at c is traveling backward in time at the rate that time is flowing forward.The same logic explains why gravity may propagate faster than c. It propagates backwards in time.Perhaps this can be extended to say that everything without mass travels backward in time at or faster than c.I believe this leaves the laws of physics intact?

You know this. You're really reaching new levels of psuedoscience. The part where you have it could be used to explain how mass travels backwards in time at rates faster than c is a peach.

The part where you have it could be used to explain how mass travels backwards in time at rates faster than c is a peach.No, I don't know it.That's a stong accusation. I have provided the logic behind what I have postulated. Perhaps you could provide evidence as to why I am wrong.That's not exactly what I said. What I said was."A photon has no mass.As the photon travels backward in time so its mass is cancelled by time flowing forward at the same rate. Its mass only becomes apparent at the point and time of impact as it is destroyed."This idea does account for how a seemingly mass-less particle can impart energy or momentum upon contact." more specifically inertial mass, can be defined as a quantitative measure of an object's resistance to the change of its speed."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MassTherefore, to define mass you need time. A photon may simply not experience time as is generally believed but that does not explain how it can impart energy or momentum upon obliteration.If you think about it which is the most unlikely, 1) that a photon does not experience time, or 2) a photon does experience time as it travels backward in time but it appears to not experience time as it travels backward in time at the same rate that time flows forward. A photon may not seem to experience time but it does produce causality which relies upon time. In a sense time is based upon the speed of light or vice versa. Is it really impossible for a photon to travel backwards in time. A mass-less 'particle' is allowed by GR to travel faster than c so long as it does not travel slower than c.Perhaps you could provide some evidence as to why I am wrong other than it's peachy?

A photon travels backward in time at the same rate that time flows forward.

What I am really looking for is evidence to either support or disprove the idea.

Why?Because I want to know how the Universe works.

PeteI postulated that photons travel backward in time at the same rate that time flows forward as the outcome of that seems to be more consistent with what we observe.
