I'm just curious about what you guys think. Yes, I know on paper the speed of light is constant. But. I'm thinking about how space-time can be seen through gravitational lensing. to some degree, those photons are manipulated by spacetimes pull at that body of mass. So. If those photons are affected by space-time. Would that not mean that the speed of the light affected was altered? Meaning not consistent or static? For that matter, Inside a star because of the amazing gravity, It takes photons hundreds of thousands of years to make it from the center of a star to the surface. And what about a black hole that can just trap light completely. If the speed of light can be tangibly affected. then light is not a constant static speed. It can't be..
