It’s just curiosity, I feel that the interactions of light are strange and that fully unlocking how it does what it does is going to be fundamental to understanding our universe.Before this thread continues, perhaps you could explain to us what you are looking for. While there might be some value in finding the accepted way that light gets to light speed, the value of the excepted way that light gets to light speed is unclear, especially since there may be a great many of those.
I read and see it been measured but not understood, let’s face it most things that are created don’t shoot off at light speed they just sit their exactly where they were created unless they are waves. So the thing that’s both a wave and a partial with strange behaviours like even if we are traveling at say 50% of light speed light would still appear to be moving away at light speed not 50% of light speed.
So feel no obligation to go to any effort on my part like I said it’s just my curiosity.
