The Paradox of Light, why is the Speed of Light Constant? The speed of light is not relative to the motion of the observer or the light source. This is illogical unless we live in a Universe where the future is unfolding light photon by light photon relative to the energy and momentum (motion) of each object or life form.
There is no objective understanding why the speed of light is a constant in a vacuum and is independent of the motion of the source or the observer. This is very odd; you would expect the speed of light to be relative to the motion of the light source and the observer. If we think of a person observing sunlight or electromagnetic waves of any kind, it is as though their own motions come to naught like a jogger running on an imaginary treadmill. Throughout the whole universe only the speed of light appears to be absolute in this way!
There is one way to explain this paradox and that is if the Universe is a continuum of continuous energy exchange or continuous creation formed by the spontaneous absorption and emission of light with an uncertain future unfolding photon by photon relative to the atoms of the periodic table.
