We are so used to some things that we stopped wondering about them. Like light. What is light? Some kind of wavy thing, right? Kind of.

What is light?
Help us caption & translate this video!
I think light behaves as the wave-particle duality, because it travels outside of our observable time frame.
Due to physical limitations, observers can only observe things that have already happened. By the time they detect something, it has already happened in the past.
Light, on the other hand, moves so fast that it's always at the present moment as things happen in the linear time and physical space.
Basically, light will always move slightly faster than a physical observation, so it seems to exist all over the place as a wave of probabilities until it has finally been observed, at which point the light has already become a part of the past(time frame we can observe) as a particle, or an information of a fixed position of light that has been observed in this particular space-time.
Looking at it that way, light perhaps exists at the borderline between matter with mass and non-matter.
C, the speed of light, would most likely be the maximum frame rate of the material universe, because it exists right on the speed limit. Anything slower than light would produce mass(a fixed position in space-time which is perhaps what creates gravity), and anything faster would probably leave our linear time frame and become unobservable by direct physical means.
Meaning light would appear as a wave of probabilities the moment before we detect it due to light being outside of our fixed space-time, and it would appear as a particle after we do observe it and it becomes a part of the past. But it only appears as wave-particle from our linear time perspective for both cases.
It is quite possible that light exists as some other state above the C barrier, but we're only able to see it as light in the physical universe, the same way 2D beings would only be able to see flat shapes when looking at 3D beings.
The beginning of time... the infinitesimal moment from which all that ever was, and all that will ever be. This moment was the instant in which the very notion of consciousness itself, was perceived and brought into existence; of its very own accord. This epiphany is it itself so beautiful and so perfect that words cannot begin to describe how eternal in its beauty it actually is. It is lasting and eternal in its formation and it will remain this way always and eternally. Consciousness is in itself the Universe. We are but a part of it, for we are part of it. Both physically, emotionally, abstractly, emotionally. Our human body is a manifestation of the Universe itself; a form with infinite possibilities. Everything that we experience will never be lost, but instead will remain with each other and all of the Universe for all time. We experience together. We are together. We feel together. We suffer together. We love together. We will always be with each other. This universe is our home, it is our creation. For consciousness is our creation. We are the Universe. The very notions that have perplexed us for millennia: the creation of the Universe.... what is consciousness...,and the meaning of our existence. These notions are simply synonymous. The universe, consciousness, and yourself are the same. We are one and the same. Eternally. I leave you with this thought.... The moment the Universe was created was NOT the first time that the we opened our eyes.... but rather the moment we REMEMBERED to open our eyes. God, is the means in which we shall never forget.
Fantastic vids, my only hangup is the fact that eyes are mentioned as "evolved". Probability alone throws that concept out the window but a creature doesn't know that it needs an eye and cannot determine how beneficial an additional feature is. Even mutations have limited benefits. Any rational deep thinker would realize how complex the eye is and would see how improbable small accurate mutations successfully built a working eye. Some organisms like worms have eyes and some don't, some sea creatures have eyes but are totally blind, these phenomena don't have to be explained but a simple reflection on how absurd it is to say that we evolved eyes would get rid of 90% of the fairy tales science has been feeding us since charles darwin.
No, don't think of particles of light at little balls of light - the label "particle" is misleading. When physicists say "particle" they mean an energy excitation in a field. Meaning, the energy of a light wave is some multiple of a basic energy in a light wave, that is a 'particle'.
Well, why do you assume the perturbation remains constant? It doesn't. It changes in time, and the strength/intensity changes in time as well. Does a perturbation in the height of water in a lake stay constant in time? No, it spreads out or travels from one side to another (or more freaky stuff waves do)
ofek10 . if light is just a perturbation through the electromagnetic field then the field would need to be a constant strength/intensity for the perturbation to remain constant , you already said it varies
Why shouldn't the traveling velocity be constant? Also, sound is a wave in the air density - the air density isn't constant, it also oscillates (your vocal cords vibrate, which push back and forth the air around them, making it more and less dense, and that perturbation travels - that is sound)
What Is Light?"
what is up dumbass?
Light is destroyed after you turn of the light. Photon, is fictitious word, therefore. Radio waves and light have no connection.
And remember: Electrons do not exist because atoms do not exist.
Light does not travel. If light were traveling then there would be no darkness any where. Light does not come from farthest places to the earth,. Why? because light is local. Turn on your out door light it illuminates your out door area, it does not travel any where.
Your myths is very surprising when you say that light travels. If light is traveling and reaching your eyes from the farthest "galaxies" did you forget that you are saying light passes through all the darkness(becoming no-light), then it becomes light when it reaches my/your eye???
That is Big lie, buddy. Impossible. Most importantly light is local and the previous light is destroyed as new one is being given off. The evidence is: when you turn of light then all the light is destroyed (there is no light travel, there is no light Journey), Buddy.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
