Is a shadow a three-dimensional object? I am proposing that we are 3 "objects" in one being. We are the light, the body and the shadow

A shadow is a 3d object, because we live in a 3d world right?

So that means they have, length, width, height, volume and mass?

And the body is just "shadow" or matter that reflects light, like a mirror, or the moon

  • Mar 8 2013: I don't think so. I am not a physic, but I can tell you are misunderstanding the shade process. Imagine an object, lets say a house, the sun projects light against that object in the form of photons, imagine those photons were the size of a base ball, thousands of those base balls would hit the hose, would be reflected by the house and would be prevented from reaching the ground, in that scenario it would be very easy to understand that a shadow is the absence of photons reaching the ground. How come the absence of something should produce volume and mass???
