What a great post, Pat!

The idea that light could traverse millions of lightyears without losing
energy always seemed to me a dubious one. Because light can't lose energy
in its intensity like sound does, it would need to lose it in its
wavelength. You would end up with a redshift coupled with distance. It
would also be likely to lose lots of energy climbing out of deep gravity
wells. I guess that is the "tired light" concept you mentioned in your
wonderful post.

The universe is shaping up to be a real beauty for transhumans: a truly
infinite playground!
