According to special relativity, a photon traveling at the speed of light, does not “experience” time. It is traveling into the future at an infinite rate, right?
That would mean that everything that could ever happen (my death, Trump winning the election, death of sun, end of the universe), has already happened (from the frame of a photon). We're just too "slow" to experience this.
Is this correct? Because that would bring some weird implications about free will, and the very nature of our existence. If everything has already happened, then we're just following a predetermined path.
Edit 1: I'm genuinely fascinated by this topic, however, I am also an idiot with very superficial knowledge, gained mostly from youtube videos and Wikipedia. Bear that in mind :)
Edit 2: The nature of my question seems to leave the realm of physics and cross into a philosophical issue. I was seeking physical explanation, to help answer something of philosophical nature, as both these realms seem to coincide for this particular topic.
Some have pointed out that thinking about the frame of a photon doesn't make sense. Instead, one could assume a spaceship traveling at $0.9999c$.
