comment Is the acceleration and deceleration of a wave instantanious?
I understand. It's not the the light slows down, the excited states of the medium "hold on" to the light for a brief amount of time, leading to an aggregated slowing of the propagation of the wave. So is this what is meant by absorption and re-emission of light through a medium?

comment Falling into a black hole
I think I agree with your statement in 2. As you are looking back at the outside observer, you would see the observer rushing away from you at an increased velocity. Eventually, the observer will be beyond your observable universe (like you said, you are moving away faster than the observers light can reach you.)

Fantastic. That is very interesting. I will attempt phase two of the ball / light experiment with blue filter analog.

comment How to find the value of the parameter $a$ in this transfer function?
yes sorry, I did that math wrong, corrected now. It's funny you asked this question. I am doing a feedback control class right now and am covering this same material.

bad math.
