Moon, Sun and many others gravity objects exist in a vacuum
One postulate of SRT says that the speed of photon
in the vacuum ( !!! ) is constant c=1.
Then on the one hand, as a peasant, I think that photon must move
in the vacuum, but on the other hand physicists talk me the photon
moves in the negative 4D Minkowski space = spacetime.
And nobody explain me what spacetime really is.
Then it seems to me that I find myself in a church or synagogue.
And I never could understand the priest or rabbi even
they are scientists with PhD in their pockets.
