( QUESTIONS  FOR  PHYSICISTS )
by Peter Beamish
27 March 2008, posted 5 April 2008

 

[HM]
I want to - pose a few more questions - [relating to "Special Relativity Theory (SR)"] - hoping for correction of errors which are quite likely –


<1>
[HM]
Since the speed of light is now accepted as constant with respect to the observer rather than the emitting source [6] –

 

[PB]
[No! The velocity of light is "a constant" FOR to all observers, & FOR all light sources.]

<2>
[HM]
The subject-dependency of the speed of light [7] –

[PB]
[The velocity of light in empty space is an "absolute constant" of Nature and is independent of the motion of the emitting body, AND/OR OF ANY SUCH SUBJECT.]

<3>
[HM]
speed = distance (i.e., space) / time. [10] –

[PB]
[No! Velocity is equal to displacement (i.e. "vector space") / duration (or "duraTion").]

<4>
[HM & AE]  
The disappearance of aether - [11]

[PB]
[Space is filled with isotropic particles, as neutrinos, limiting the velocity of light.]

<5>
[HM]
space & time (which like all structures are subject-inclusive)-

[PB]
[No! Space is "Objective Reality;" time is _ONLY_ "Subjective Reality."]  [ONLY "temporal scalar labels" (as "timetags") are "Objective Realities" as "Real time is a mental reading OF (NOT 'on/at/in') a working clock."]

<6>
[HM]
Has the question of ontology versus reality-structuring been discussed in this context? [12]

[PB]
["The nature of being" involves "objective (MIR) and subjective realities" but organism mind can ANALYZE time backwards so that it can "reach for the stars" & is thus defined as one's "Event Space Sphere Or Spheroid" ("Essos," pronounced Eee-sauce).]  For "ESSOS CONCEPTS" reference end line #11119, #11187, & #13333.

<7>
[HM]
And how was Einstein able to maintain an ontological view despite - his reliance on the Lorentz-transformation? [12] –

[PB]
[The Lorentz Transformation (no hyphen) _is necessary_ to calculate "Duration Dilations."]

<8>
[AC]
the continuum space-time will change –

[PB]
[Temporal concepts are newly defined as "scalar labels" and as such they do not "flow," but are "transported" by "Mental Vector Processes, MVPs," which are simply "mass and/or energy" vectors, moving "through" vector space. So it now becomes wrong to combine scalar labels as: pricetags, colourtags, shapetags, and "timetags" with spacial vectors! There are: < "3 and ONLY 3 'Orthogonal' Spacial Dimensions" > such as east, north, and up. Use "time-in-space!"]

[AC]
speed of light - is really not very well - understood.

[PB]
[Au contraire!]  For "MVP CONCEPTS" reference end line #13983.

<9>
[AE]
Dr. Einstein failed to realize that there exist 2 temporal types &, that "Duration Dilations" only occur when a clock is moving away from a receiver. If the clock begins a return path, then there must be a sign change & "Duration (not time) Dilations" become "Duration Contractions."  Reference: < http://www.egroups.com/message/time/14289 >, and TA92 R29.]  For "TEMPORAL DESCRIPTIONS," reference end line #14196.
