Crepuscular Rays and Shadows

Crepuscular rays is an example of light converging within the structure. If we trace the rays all the way up to the point were they are converging, it appears as if the Sun were right above the clouds. (Picture above) But we know that the Sun is not hiding in the clouds. Assuming that the Sun were right above the clouds would also lead to the false conclusion that there were multiple Suns illuminating the Earth since crepuscular rays occur at multiple locations at a time. What we observe is visual information of the Sun's light body being displayed in the point of convergence at which the rays are converging.


Picture above illustrates three crepuscular Sun ray formations occurring at different locations at a time. The parts of the light body obscured by the clouds are not vibrating. Crepuscular rays in picture above  are the sections of the light body which are vibrating, in contrast to the  sections which are  not vibrating and appear as shadows. According to the rays, the point of convergence within the Sun's light body is, in this case, only a few hundred meters above the ground, yet we have the impression of the Sun being further away than only a few hundred meters since the visual information displayed in the fabric of the light body contains the real distance of the actual object. Furthermore, objects that are between the Moon (for example) and the point of convergence are not perceived behind the Moon, but in font of it. 


If an airplane enters the light body of the Moon, its light body and the light body of the Moon begin to interact and exchange visual information which  is displayed in the fabric of the points of convergence. Despite being above the point of convergence, the airplane  will still be perceived in the foreground, in front of the Moon, as his position relative to the Moon's position is part of the information displayed in the point of convergence. 



After having mentioned crepuscular rays, we can step over to shadows. To recap: The light body is a fabric which transmits visible light when vibrating, but does not convey light when it's static. The vibration within the body increases towards the source. The fiber of light permeates matter and goes all the way down to the pillars of the Earth below.

Although matter has no effect on the structure of light, it does have the ability to absorb the vibration of the fabric. Solid  objects, like stones, obscure light; while others, like glass, conduct light.

Picture illustrates a vibrating light body, in this case a light bulb, and two objects casting shadows. The fiber directly below the objects is nearly static as most of the vibration in this part of the fabric is absorbed by the objects; these sections form the inner shadows.  The outer shadows are the parts of the structure that are vibrating weaker  than the surrounding structure, but are not “static”.
