Re: Interesting times

A photon doesn't have a perspective, but I digress.

The whole idea of time either going slower or faster is from the observer's point of view, for whoever is inside the "event" where this timeshift happens it appears as if nothing has happened, for them. Except if they were able to observe the observers they would find their time is either moving slower or faster.

Going from that I would think that if you were to travel on a photon and if said photon would travel instantaneously it would still appear from your point of view as if time would behave normally.

I like theoretical physics, you can make up all kind of (bogus) thought experiements without the burden of proof. ;-)
