The One-Electron Universe

Cooooool! I thought I had invented this idea myself in the 80s!

Of course, I had no idea what I was talking about at the time, so nobody took me seriously. Including me. :mrgreen:

Thank you. That was a good video.

I'm not saying I understand it fully, however I can sort of see how this field of study is probably going to explain what is really going on.

In my mind, I sort of understand that time dilation suggests that a photon. moving at the speed of light, has not actually experienced any time (from its point of view) although it has moved in our three dimensional point of view. My gut feeling is that the photon is both were it started and where it finished simultaneously, from its point of view.

I'm wondering it our three dimensions are really not dimensions at all but the illusion of three dimensions because we (for reasons I don't understand) see something we call "time" although everything is actually happening simultaneously.

(This is way beyond my skill level)
:D

Feyman diagrams suggest that anti-photons can be viewed as photons going "backwards" through time.

Here, this previous video might help:
