In a physics study group, a friend says in a profound tone that light is the only thing we can see. After a few laughs, your friend goes on to say that light is produced by the connection between electricity and magnetism. Is your friend correct?
My responds is that my friend is both correct and incorrect. Am I on the right track.

    Your friend is wrong. We cannot see light. if light travels through the sky, we don't see it. What your friend sees is light traveling to his eyes, only, and that only because it hits a neural receptor in his eye. All the other light passing by he does not see.
