Uses for liquid light or solid light?
Well, I recall a science fiction story I read a few decades ago that was called "A Can of Paint". Explorers on another world found some weird things. One was this can of paint, and one of its ingredients was "liquid light".
And I kind of like that idea. Being able to add light to paint could be very useful.

They won't be used to address any problems. They'll be put to evil uses. If any solutions to "worldly problems" are introduced, they're more control disguised as blessings. Computers have united us, the free exchange of ideas, information. They changed the world, but the little people are easier to control. More entertainment, more control, more influence. Computers were the gamechanger, the invention that united us in oppression.

First, let me display my ignorance and ask, If light is made up from photons, how do you get light to flow "in" a wire? Super conductive or not, isn't it still a solid material?
If the light were allowed to escape at light speed, thus driving a craft forward at light speed?
