You're correct if Photons can only travel at 186,000 MPS which is certainly the accepted theory (fact?). We might currently be unable to detect Photons at any other speed (which may be because our sense of sight only sees light at 186,000 MPS, and thus limits experimentation and observing to results of that speed). The multi speed/multi angle Photon would seem to change the relationship between light and time.
Imperceptible Photons (and everything else traveling at imperceptible speeds) might even contribute to dark matter/energy.
I'm sorry to drone on about this, but I just can't get past the accepted fact that every wave that can travel through a vacuum just happens to go 186,000 MPS, and that manditory speed is somewhat randomly assigned by our sense of sight.
BCS,Welcome to the forum. People of different knowledge are welcomed to participate in the forum. I've moved the topic to new theories as it seems to be presenting an alternate view of light. However, if you were clarifying a physics question with respect to mainstream physics, it would also be equally welcome in the Physics forum.The speed of light does change through different media, so it is slower in water than in air. However, at least frequency is independent of the speed of light. So, say a supernova is observed in some distance galaxy. The reds, blues, and greens, as well as UV and IR all arrive at Earth at the same time. I did run into a note a while ago that the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAGIC_%28telescope%29#Observations [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]. It was suggested that could be due to a speed difference. However, the relationship would have to be noted with other stellar phenomena, and the difference would have to increase linearly with distance.
Sorry, I should have said speeds in a vacuum..
I did run into a note a while ago that the ultra high energy photons from blazar Markarian 501 seem to arrive about 4 minutes after lower energy photons [nofollow]. It was suggested that could be due to a speed difference. However, the relationship would have to be noted with other stellar phenomena, and the difference would have to increase linearly with distance.
