Lessans said nothing about nanoseconds. He said we would see the Sun the instant it was turned on. You are just making up the stuff about nanoseconds and in doing that you are contradicting Lessans' claim.
That's why I am clarifying this. When he said "instant" he didn't mean there was no connection between light and the viewer. But this has no bearing on whether we are seeing in real or delayed time because, as I said, the time it takes for light to get to the photoreceptor or sensor is not affected by distance. The object could be 100 million miles away but if it met the requirements of efferent vision, we would see it virtually instantly since we would still not be waiting for that light to arrive. Again, I am not talking about seeing distant galaxies because this is just pure light which travels and strikes our telescopes in delayed time. I'm only talking about things in the environment that are made up of matter which light reveals.
