Almost everything emits an infinite amount of waves, and all waves carry energy. So why don't all objects emit an infinite amount of energy?

light is a wave and a particle, its called duality

a photon

but it has properties of both a particle and a wave...

and the way it moves through the vaccuum of space is kinda wierd too... it like creates a magnetic field to travel through

Light is simply a name for a range of electromagnetic radiation that can be detected by the human eye...Electromagnetic radiation has a dual nature as both particles and waves.

and thus being...it is neither a particle nor wave...(dont bother discussing this..coz its not official yet...they are still running tests and experiments to determine)

haha...

light is state.

difficult to explain this concept. but light does not travel.
That so called travel of light is really the change of state.

there's a lot more.. thats just something i picked up from somewhere.

rizzix, how would light get from a star to the earth without traveling any distance?

go into a dark room, turn on a flash light and direct it at the wall. Light has to travel to get to the wall, then it has to be reflected so you could see it. it can't get there without traveling as there is space between the flashlight and the wall and your eye.
