In spacetime, photons move relative to each other at light speed. A simple model of N elementary bosons (e.g., photons) of equal relative velocities is that of a N1 dimensional velocity space regular polytope. Spacetime relative to such a regular polytope might define a horizon moving at velocity c.

Is there a question?

Special relativity can probably answer any problems you might have with photons and relative speeds.

I tried to state how the constant light speed of relativity among N photons might be represented innovatively by a regular polytope in at least N1 dimensional space. A regular polytope exhibits equal distances among its vertices (here equal relative velocities in a higherdimensional velocity space): point, line segment, triangle, tetrahedron, hypertetrahedron, etc., for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... photons. N equidistant photons require a N1 dimensional polytope. As the number of photons approaches infinity, the regular polytope approaches a Ndimensional sphere (horizon).
