Inb4 Reddit jumps all over this to explain how this is wrong and the primary ingredient in the recipe for success is luck.

It’s totally not an effort to excuse mediocrity. Not at all. You can only be successful if you’re born into it or lucky.

That’s the only way. Reddit told me.

All those hard working people, lucky. They didn’t do anything extraordinary. All their efforts? Useless. It was just luck.

Excuse me, I’m new to astrophysics, and I’ve been teaching myself about redshift recently.

Are you implying that age from origin creates redshift in waveforms due to energy losses via time and space travelled?

I.E. a wave that started out at normal “red” frequency will lose frequency, or become longer and more toward infrared as it traverses the cosmos, and will lose more and more of its frequency rate as it goes farther and farther?

I’m asking to understand, not implicate that you’re wrong.
