Wouldn't the alteration of time also have an effect on our perceptions, due to its effects on light?
For instance, I was thinking about that episode of Star Trek TNG where the Enterprise and a Romulan ship were frozen, but Picard, Data, Troi and Geordi used those transporter arm bands to beam onto the ships and not be frozen by the effect. It got me wondering: how could they see?
If time was frozen, wouldn't the movements of the photons be frozen, as well? Naturally, you would assume the photons would not be emitted from the lights, travel to a surface, bounce off of it and enter their eyes.
I would also think slowing down or speeding up time would have a similar effect, maybe blue shift and red shift.
Still, maybe my understanding of light just really sucks, because it is confusing, after all.
