I have one major fundamental problem with light speed and that is the lack of an acceleration curve. Described as a constant by the scientific community, light speed and people's understanding of it IMHO is completely flawed. The reason I say this is because a Photon that has no acceleration curve can never have started a journey in the first place.Cliff wrote:Dear Rudd
I am reasonably happy with my own simplistic ideas about cosmology.
For me personally, "theoretical" cosmology is only one part and not the most interesting aspect of the broader subject of astronomy.
I have no problem with the speed of light myself.

Imagine you had a railway track with no train on it, then the train is created having the velocity of 300,000 KM\S immediatly. Because there is no acceleration curve for the train it has to appear on a certain part of the track not having travelled along a 'would be' acceleration curve. The track can be described as time reference frames. The Photon either had to have accelerated before it entered a time reference frame in a dimension we do not see where time stands still or it didn't accelerate at all.
You cannot create velocity without a means of reaching it, it goes against all the known principles we have including Newtons.
The common sense question that Ruud has come up with is quite simple. Yes there is a constant involved in this argument but it is not light speed. The constant that we all witness everyday is time, we do not have a velocity of time as such, we just witness ourselves moving forward through time at a speed we cannot see. Ruud simply suggests that light because it has no mass cannot travel with us forward into the future and we leave it behind. This is why light has no acceleration curve, because time is the constant in the equation. If you look at this principle correctly, you will have determined that mass moves forward through spacetime not at a velocity but at a constant which is unmeasurable by us, then the light is left stationary in spacetime. The 300,000 KM\S is simply the velocity that the past cannot keep up with the future. Time is the constant not light speed. Prove Ruud wrong!
