This, too, is addressed by Feynman in the video. If this were the
case, the photons that make it through the glass would all be lined
up, but when these lined-up photons strike another layer of glass, you
still get 4% of them reflected. And so on with more layers of glass.
This, combined with other evidence, shows that this theory is wrong.
PLEASE watch the video so I don't have to keep quoting from it. If you
have a question about something in the video, fine. But please watch
