Light Conveyed Information

How light carries data: Each photon/wave does not itself carry a picture. Rather, the vibration/wave length of each one is altered by the context and color of the substance it is reflected from. When it reaches your eyes, each such photon is carrying the altered wave length. Your retina receives the altered wave length as conveyed by each photon that hits it, and then your brain interprets the combined data as a picture. The process of visual transmission, perception, sensation, and conceptualization of Information thus depends on the capacity of each electromagnetic wavelength to be altered based on the substance it reflects from and then the retina/brain being able to receive such wavelength and interpret the combined data that is conveyed by others as a picture representation. As the photon is received by your retina, it will impart information about its incoming wave length to nerve receptors, and as the photon is reflected back from your retina its outgoing wavelength will again be altered by the context of the substance of your retina. The originating wavelength of each photon/wave will be based on the context of that from which it originated. Its wavelength thereafter will be affected and altered based on the context of that of whatever it may subsequently be reflected by.

Consider:  Seeing your reflection in someone else's iris.  Seeing regressive pictures of yourself by positioning yourself between two or more mirrors.  How mood changes may indirectly affect the apparent color of eyes.  http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4967659_can-eye-color-change-mood.html

Light photons travel at the limiting maximum speed of any outbound vibration/wave/radiation. Light is subject to being reflected or absorbed. If absorbed, it transitions into a qualitatively different kind of clump or organization, which will heat, excite, bind, and alter the properties of such organization and its components.
When light records information about a substance it reflects from by altering the light photon's wavelength, and when such informtation is conveyed to a retina, and when the photon is then reflected from the retina, then the only preservation of the information first recorded by the photon will have been imparted to a nerve in the retina, whereupon such information may be combined to be interpreted as a picture, and somehow stored as an experiential memory.
QUESTION: So, does the unfolding transmission of Information present a continuous process of receiving, losing, and remixing Information? Is all Information preserved in some format, or is Information constantly churned, lost, and recreated?
