# I need time dilation help please? watch

1. Gibberish as usual. But to answer two points
(Original post by AlbertXY)
frequency of light passing through space, The frequency is 0
This describes a static electromagnetic field. So how does FM work?
(Original post by AlbertXY)
Photons? time to travel? Do you or anybody else see individual photons?
Yes. Look up Superconducting nanowire single-photon detector.

Sorry FM? Do you mean like a radio signal? Imagine a glass of water, relative to you the water is static, imagine then pouring in a dye, your FM is the directed ''dye''.

The tip of the light travels from A to B, I never really see it travelling after that. We observe a Quanta whole,

Yes. Look up Superconducting nanowire single-photon detector.

Detecting is quite distinguishable than seeing, I did not ask if you can detect single photons which is still questionable in my eyes, I asked you if you see single photons travelling anywhere or at any time, the answer is no, I know the answer is no because I ask friends and family questions on a regular basis about observation .

Do you see single photons passing through space? confirmed answer from other people is no.

Do you see anything of space? answer no , space is transparent to sight like a piece of glass is transparent to sight.
Yes I know transparent means to allow light to pass through, but as light passes through, it allows sight also to pass through.

Light and dark are interwoven, a dimmer switch shows this, shadows show this, dark is a thing and not just the absence of light.

No idea what this means but FM is Frequency Modulation.
A narrow radio wave band cannot possibly carry the range of frequencies in voice or music. This is solved by encoding the range of frequencies as slight variations of the transmitted frequency between the carrier and mid-wave (I think I got that right). So I ask again, if light travels at 0 frequency then how can it be modulated to carry radio transmissions?

Do you realise how idiotic this statement is? 'See' individual photons!!!!! Oh dear.

I don't think you have a clue how a dimmer switch works. A transistor interrupts the natural 60hz cycles (that's a frequency) of the supply and controls when the supply is on or off.
So you 'see' brighter when supply is live for longer in that 60hz cycle and dimmer when supply is off for longer. i can assure you it does not create darkness atoms or whatever you call them..

To say the expression you are making waves, light is only a wave and only a frequency when it hits something.

Darkness atoms? I do not suggest that, atoms are things that occupy space, space is not made of anything of substance although this is not to say that space is not made of something energy related.
You think you see by light reflecting from an object that arrives at your eyes and is detected, converted and read in the back of your head as a picture. This is wrong of course, you see by the ''live feed'' of fr=0 light, your brain is directly coupled by light to any object. normal objects do not reflect light, you see the object in its exact location, where you see a red object, the red is exactly where you are seeing it, the red it the tips of the light and the observed change from the constant-'constant of light.

Answer one simple question, do you between your eyes and screen see anything other than clear, see through, clarity, not opaque.
5. I take it from the failure to reply you have conceded that you are indeed wrong ?

I ask the teachers for facts and the dogma in return they reply is contradictory to the observed facts.
6. aside from that which is utterly nonsensical, everything you say is contrary to the observed facts, as has been outlined multiple times

Observation evidence?

You can see space and objects in space, you can't see anything else, you observe very little, do you mean you detect things?
