According to relativity, time and space adjust exactly to keep the speed of light constant however matter moves, but Einstein didn’t say how this happens. *Quantum realism attributes the changes in space and time to matter teleporting*. If an entity restarts one node to the right say, any measure it makes in that direction is a pixel less, i.e.distance shortens in that direction. And if the restart interrupts a life cycle, that cycle of its life didn’t get a chance to occur, i.e. time dilates. If matter spends a quantum cycle “in transit”, that cycle isn’t part of its life. For matter, life events and movement teleports share a limited resource – quantum cycles – that can give one or the other but not both at once. If distance is measured from where one is, a teleport one way shortens distance that way and if time is measured in life cycles every teleport steals a life cycle. Together, these two effects keep the speed of light constant as matter moves.

Figure 5.5 shows the space-time diagram of a photon of light passing stationary matter. The photon moves a point of distance per point of time to give a 45º line, i.e. the speed of light. When matter teleports, it loses a point of distance and a cycle of time which in effect slides the time axis down and the length axis right by one point. Since the photon still passes through the zero-point, shifting both axes by one means the photon line is still 45º, i.e. the speed of light is the same. *Special r*elativity arises because the movement of matter is based on origin changes not pointer changes.

In Figure 5.4 earlier, the same photon from the sun passed both rockets and the earth at the speed of light because matter alters its time and space as it moves. The photon doesn’t change what it does but rather the movement of each rocket alters how it measures distance and time, as each restart loses distance and time. Quantum realism explains why the movement of matter changes its space and time.

Einstein’s theory implies that every matter body has its own space and time, so one can’t talk of space and time without specifying for what? Time passes slower for objects that move faster because movement consumes quantum cycles. Matter time is measured by quantum cycles in the same node not interrupted by teleport cycles. Applying matter time to light creates contradictions because light moves to a new node every cycle. Einstein’s equations imply that “time” stops for light but matter time doesn’t apply to light. Light moves in quantum time, which is the completion of any quantum cycle, as light could not move at all if no time passed for it.
