I've been having this confusing thought for so long now it would be amazing if someone could answer me.
Imagine this asterisk * . As you see, from the center point, lines go outwards, just like a sun will emit rays of light in all direction.
BUT, theoretically, there should be a "finite" amount of photons it sends in space, which means that the farther you are from that sun, let's say 1 million light years, the less likely are your eyes of catching the photons emitted from the source?
So does this make the theory of the photon bad? Since we can see a star millions of light years away, no matter where we stand on the ground of this planet. This means that the star can emit at least one photon every millimeter or less millions of light years away so this would mean that it would need an "impossible" density of photons sent at the source on the sun's surface in every direction of the cosmos.
How's this possible?
