UM...Hello. I hate that other speed of light topic. It started with a stupid question and got super intelligent and confusing responses. This new topic has a question thats not that stupid and hopefully will get responses some who hasn't graduated from college can understand.

It is well known that the speed of light in a vacuum is a constant 3*10^8 mps.

However, I had to research to find out that like can travel considerably slower! So...Question 1. Since light normally goes considerable slower depending on its medium that it travels, would its speed still be seemingly constant no matter what frame of reference? Ie. Light going the speed of light, no matter if you are going half the speed of light and you look at the sun, the sunlight would appear to go the same speed as it went when you weren't moving. However, if light went less than c, would it still exhibit this property? I think no. I think light exhibits this property not because photons have some magic powers, but that that is what happens when you go c. Usings Einsteins time dilation equation, no mathematical errors occur when you are traveling less than 1 c. But at 1 c, a math error occurs. Past c, Division by 0 errors occur. I think the first error, is represented by light not being relative, as I mentioned earlier. So all math, even errors, have things they represent! Anyways, I don't know what division by zero would represent in real life, scientists assume backwards time travel. But here is the problem with proving me wrong. I think scientists can only test if light is constant when it is in a vacuum. This makes it hard to prove my theory that light switches to Galilean/Einstein relativity when it is subluminal.
