Accelaration of a photon..

Hello, maybe some of you know me because of my ideas about consciouness and so on..

I think I have to ask a differen't question to make my ideas more scientific.

How does a photon accelrate up to 300.000km/sec?

acceleration vs. exponential

Perhaps it accelerates at the same rate that various combinatoric problems reach the exponential growth state.

I think there are three answers.
The first is simple: I don't know.
Second: When it is a photon it travels at c thus the question douse not exist.
Third: When is the photon created in the first place (referring to the uncertainty principle)?

How would you like to relate this to NKS?

The photon can exist as a rule, a simple program, like so:

define class absolutePhoton as Custom

x = 0
c = 10
totalEnergy    = 10^5

function move

this.x = this.x + this.c

* As the photon moves it loses energy
this.totalEnergy =  this.totalEnergy - this.c

if mod(this.totalEnergy, 10^4) = 0 and this.c > 0
this.c = this.c - 1
endif

return

enddefine

This is an NKS photon.

Instead of having inertia and energy in the Newtonian classical sense, these photons move along a dimension x at a rate of c, delivering quantas of energy out of an "energy tank" so to speak.

As the tank empties, at certain intervals c decreases, so while c is constant for a while, once the tank has emptied to a specified level, the foot is taken off the gas.

Less energy is delivered, and the photon moves slower, until it eventually dies out.

This is verified in cosmology by Hubble redshift and various other observations.

The frequency can be effected (GR) . But when do photons move slower? (in vacuum)

Also why douse the code describe a photon?
Why douse it lose energy as it moves trough empty space?

The loss of energy as it moves through space is an observed phenomenon, called Hubble redshift and is alleged to be caused by the expansion of space.

I'm suggesting its just natural behavior of the photon to deliver less energy as travels great distances.

Here's my ideas:

Occasionally it is necessary to point out, again, that this is formally illiterate nonsense and has nothing whatever to do with NKS (or photons, come to that). I repeat my recommendation that you spend a tenth of the time you spend trying to promote your existing thoughts, informing yourself about formal matters that others have already worked out. In the meantime, you are wasting our time, and I for one would appreciate your doing so elsewhere rather than on my Forum.
