If a beam of light is made of photons.
And, if the size of the photon has the length of an electron.
The measure of a time particle has the value from an electron size divided by the speed of light.

According to this formula: C= distance (length)/ time.
Where C is equal to the speed of light.
Length is the size of an electron.
And in time we get the smallest particle of time.

Round 1
Pro
The introduction is my first Argument:

If a beam of light is made of photons.
And, if the size of the photon has the length of an electron.

The measure of a time particle has the value from an electron size divided by the speed of light.
According to this formula: C= distance (length)/ time.
Where C is equal to the speed of light.
Length is the size of an electron.
And in time we get the smallest particle of time.

Once again on this useless debate site, everything disappeared when attempting to make an edit.

I cannot be bothered to re-type.

So,...
What Should I write...

Anyway...

Here goes again:

If a beam of light is made of photons.
And, if the size of the photon has the length of an electron.

The measure of a time particle has the value from an electron size divided by the speed of light.
According to this formula: C= distance (length)/ time.
Where C is equal to the speed of light.
Length is the size of an electron.
And in time we get the smallest particle of time.

Round 3
Pro
Well,

I based myself in the argument that light was a photon.

In this random video, shows some properties of light.

One of these properties is that light is a particle (photon) but also a wave.

My thoughts through this are that the minimum rate (frequency) for the wave would be the less time founded for the photon.

Anyway, nobody calculates the 8 minutes that the light would take to go off if the sun disappears, in a different way than a corpuscle.
And even if there are some effects, the light moves always at speed C (speed of light).

This C speed, the speed of light, is also the speed of electricity.
There is no faster speed than that.

And there's no other particle less small than an electron that would be stable.
Smaller particles exist, but they are not stable.

In an extreme way, let's suppose that there's a little tiny particle (smaller than an electron) that would go at C speed.
The time would be always not continuous because there is a force to exist that particle.
(Travelling at C speed).

Time is not continuous.
Just because you don't feel, doesn't mean that it's not.
