I cant seem to find the theory anywhere and that may be
part of the reason that I cant fully understand the theory
and how it is supposedly moving galaxies around.
is the theory called "the expanding space theory"?
you really cant blame me if I cant find the theory
and you two guys are explaining it differently than the
internet articles I have read.
is your explanation a secret or is it just that no one
wants to put their name on it?
anyway unless you actually have access to the written
theory and can supply a link to it , at least I now have
your definition below.
Space is expanding everywhere - outside galaxies, inside galaxies even within the cells of your body. Galaxies retain their physical integrity due to gravity, and your body due to nuclear forces. The photon, being massless, is affected by gravity only indirectly due to the effect of mass upon the geometry of the space through which the photon passes. So, no matter where the photon happens to be it's affected by the expansion of space, i.e, its wavelength is increased over time in accordance with the Hubble constant.

so far as I recall none of the articles that I have read mentioned that space inside of the human cells was expanding.
and most of the articles state that the expansion is not occurring inside a galaxy.
so , unless you or bill can supply a link to the information
where this is written down , Im afraid that I will just have to dismiss the information as heresay.
The photon, being massless,
I have read articles that state that a photon is only referenced as being massless because its mass is really
tiny , but it still has mass.
even though a photon has a tiny amount of mass a very strong
gravity field will cause it to change its direction.
the wiki article on a photon states that a photon has a mass
of <1×10−18 eV/c2 , how could a massless particle have mass?
it also has an electric charge
of <1×10−35 e , how could a massless particle have an electric charge?
so either the person who wrote the wiki article
is wrong or you are wrong , I wonder which one?
heres the really tricky part where you seem to add some mass
in there , but if the photon does not have any mass then where does the mass come from or does the space itself have the mass somehow.
The photon, being massless, is affected by gravity only indirectly due to the effect of mass upon the geometry of the space through which the photon passes.
the effect of mass upon the geometry
how could the geometry be affected by a photon that has no
I suppose that you mean the shape of space when you say geometry , I couldn't figure out what that part means.
but if so , how could the shape of the massless space
affect a massless photon?
I suppose that the reason that you use this description
of why a photon can be affected by space geometry is mainly
due to the fact that you want to try and say that a photon
has no mass at all.
this way the photons will not be influenced to move the way
that the entire galaxies are moving in the expanding space theory.
but then maybe the expanding space theory doesn't need
an object to have mass in order to carry the object.
but would a object require mass in order to be an object?
the theory is absolutely fantastic and actually amazing
although Im not sure exactly what it says but what I really find hard to believe is that I cant find the theory itself , because it is supposedly so widely accepted.
