notes / copy+paste
If one turns to modern quantum field theory,
then there are now FOUR photons available, not the two transverse photons so well known to classical electrodynamicists etc. In the following, the travel direction of the photon in 3space is assumed along the Z axis. The "regions of vibration" of the photon  i.e., the type and direction of its oscillation  may occur in four ways. These are (1, 2) the two "orthogonal" oscillation polarizations, one along the Xaxis and the other along the Yaxis. Then there is (3) the longitudinal (i.e., longitudinallypolarized) photon, which oscillates along the Zdirection of travel itself. And finally there is (4) the timepolarized or "scalar" photon, which oscillates along the time axis. These four photons are all in standard quantum field theory.

What is stopping a photon from oscillating at a tangent??
if a photon oscillates at a tangent to the time axis does time dilate? expand? change direction at right angles? Does this mean that time travelers all lose aand gain mass depending on whether they are traveling forward or backward? If a time traveler gains mass as he/she travels backward in time then at some point they must intersect the discontinuity that started the universe as we know it, as you cannot travel past a discontinuity they must materialize by which time they will have accumulated so much mass that they turn instantly into a black hole. As it was postulated that the universe started as a black hole then it is possible that the universe was started by a time traveler who got his/her Space Time coordinates wrong went too far back and promptly disappeared in the resulting BIG BANG

I understand the answer but I don't think I remember the question, if 51 is the question then the answer is "Maybe"
