Okay, let's try one more time.
Have you ever seen a movie? Any movie? A new movie or an old movie? Any movie will work.
I'm going to bet that you have seen at least ONE movie or video in your life.
Now, when you were watching that movie, did you think that the actors and special effects artists were making that movie happen just for you right
then and there and that everything was happening at that exact moment?
... or is it possible that some time in the past, like maybe last year, or the year before, or some time in the past, some actors and producers,
writers, special effects artists, directors and such all got together and took lots of time, sometimes months or even a year or two to film and
produce this 2 hour movie?
If you agree and can see that the movie you watch was filmed some time in the past, even though you see it now, then you are a step away from
understanding how sight and light really works.
When something extremely far away happens that is light years away, it's like when the movie producers and actors are making the movie.
Eventually, however long it takes the light to travel, you get to see what happened very similar to seeing a movie that was produced and recorded in
Light takes time to get to you from other parts of the universe.
Once the light gets to you, it's like a movie that was filmed some time in the past.
