Imagine we have a panel of lasers in a truly dark vacuum, together with a panel of sensors, facing each other, some distance apart.
Further, imagine that the number of lasers within the light-panel is exactly the number of sensors in the sensor-panel, and that each laser points directly at exactly one sensor.
There is, therefore, a perfect 1-to-1 mapping between the light sources and the light sensors, and no other source of light, producing a single perceived object upon the sensor-panel.
If we move the light-panel away from the sensor-panel, without rotating it in anyway, there will still be a perfect 1-to-1 mapping between the light sources and the light sensors, regardless of how far apart they are, subject of course to the accuracy of the lasers within the light-panel.
This implies that there shouldn't be any change in the perceived size of the light-panel as it moves away -
The luminosity at each sensor is always going to be exactly the same, regardless of the distance between the light-panel and the sensor-panel.
This appears to be an example of a receding light source that does not have a vanishing point, and therefore, would not be perceived intuitively, but would instead appear to have a constant size.
Is anyone aware of similar hypotheticals, or of a criticism of this hypothetical that suggests otherwise?
