So I understand the Michelson–Morley experiment and its result. I do not question the results of the experiment. I have no problem with Special Relativity. The result of this discovery on its surface does seem to defy common sense. It is the independence of the speed of light from other objects in motion that I believe needs a good solid mechanical explanation. I would like to see what everyone here has to say about this question. I have my own ideas but will not say them as I do not want to violate the rules of the forum. If it is permitted and desired I will give my idea otherwise I would really like to hear from experts as to what the currently excepted explanation is.
AlanAs I understand it the speed of light will always be measured as 299792458 m / s no matter what speed you are moving at.
One avenue would be explore in detail how Maxwell discovered that light speed has to do with the permittivity and permeability of space.
I just do not want to upset anyone with such ideas as I know some physics forums usually have strict rules about sharing such ideas.
In a vacuum like outer space light always travels at exactly at 299,792,458 m/s
The basic point I am trying to bring out is that the photon moves independently from all other frames of reference and it does this in a perpetual manner. This state of the perpetual motion of the photon appears to me to be completely ignored.
1. Where is this initial force that puts the photon in motion coming from?
2. How does it put every photon in motion with the exact same speed?
3. If this motion was governed by Newton's law then the photon would be slowed down if the photon encountered an external force that opposes its motion. This has never happened that I know of. For example when photons collide with other particles they continue to move at the speed of light after the collision.
4. Here is the real clincher that breaks the generally assumed model of motion. When a photon enters a gravitational field it slows down and when it exits the gravitational field it then speeds up. The general assumption can not explain any of these actions.
I say something else is going on that is not explained by the current laws and theories of physics. It is my intention to get to the bottom of this mystery.
