Re: knowing in principle
Strictly speaking all we can say from the experiments is that what we see at the far end is what we would see if the photon had taken a single path. What actually happens in between is not directly knowable Because it doesn't affect anything. And that is where your argument falls down - this phenomenon doesn't help your argument in the OP.

Re: problems so putting this in general reply
First, it didn't appear to post, and then when it did post, I tried editting it, and it wouldn't edit, and also, none of these posts contain my whole post either. It's strange. We'll see if this post works, but to be honest, I can't spend a lot of time here today.

Edited by randman, : No reason given.
