To itself the photon doesn't travel at the speed of light, and doesn't travel the distance of 1 lightyear per year. At the only moment it can exist, it would exist at all points as all distances shrink to zero and time stops (there is only one everlasting moment as it can only travel in the speed of light - which is in the perspective of the photon infinite speed). What would this mean? The photon exists so it has a perspective, but it is infinity, the infinity of only one moment, as time stops the outside world would move through time at a infinite rate in the perspective of the photon, always existing at all points. So if this is the perspective of the photon, the true nature (as I would perceive it), then what is the process that determines a certain speed for it, and direction, and all other things that the photon just doesn't have in its own perspective? What is more real, the perspective of the photon? or the perspective of the outside observers?
