The problem really is an abysmal ignorance of geometry, wogoga:
The density of photons travelling away from a point source decreases because there is more volume for them. It is not a hypothesis. It is simple geometry - the surface that they travel through increases in area with time .

A delusion about photons magically grouping together does not change this basic geometry.
