Re: Relativity?

If, as you propose, "humans are not accurate enough clocks to measure the difference", then what that really means is NO actual twin experiment has been done, nor finalized, right? Yes, it has. As has been shown to you. Where has it been shown to Me? Any links? What was the name of this "actual" tw...

Re: Relativity?

What is frame independent in the speed of light, from which all the rest follows: time dilation, length contraction, etc. I have just been made aware of the point that the set of mathematical simplifications, which special relativity is largely based on, and thus which time dilation, length contrac...

Re: Relativity?

ALL of My questions from now on will be in relation to travelers and distances, and NOT any inertial frame of reference, unless otherwise stipulated. It is the 'inertial reference frame' that causes the contradictory, inconsistent, and confusing views people form regarding this. ALL My questions wi...

davidm EXPECTS others to respond to davidm's responses, but this is all davidm can give in return.

Which is by the way just ANOTHER completely WRONG assumption made.

Re: Relativity?

As Einstein quickly realised, special relativity is based largely on a set of mathematical simplifications which have bugger all to do with reality; I was starting to observe special relativity had not much to do with reality, and pondered questioning this earlier. Also, I would hope einstein quick...

Re: Relativity?

Can't find that in someone else's work huh? Yeah I thought so. So, like Ken, you think that relativity is like religious dogma that people read and pass on without understanding? Why assume that? I might think that, but why assume another does? Why not just clarify, BEFORE assuming? You obtain far ...

Re: Relativity?

Okay I read all the way through this post before responding. I considered what you call the "bigger picture" being communicated/shown to Me. There was nothing new there. Now I will respond the way I wish to. Ken, here are links to where I previously assembled recent inconsistent/contradictory statem...

Re: Relativity?

I have NO idea if a traveling twin would age less, more, or not at all compared to the other one that did not leave. Really Ken? NO idea? Scroll back several pages where, in answer to my "clarifying question," you definitively stated that the twins would have aged the SAME -- no difference on their...

Re: Relativity?

I agree I could word things far more carefully. Could you also do that? Could you follow that order also? Is there any writer or speaker that could NOT word things more carefully? What you wrote does NOT directly counter My assertion because I did NOT assert what you say you THOUGHT I was asserting...

Re: Relativity?

So, actual 'knowledge' may have nothing at all to do with just a theory? Epistemology is a whole branch of philosophy dedicated to understanding what 'knowledge' means. So what? Human beings, have for thousands of years, been dedicating themselves, through "whole branches" of mislabeled "philosophy...

Re: Relativity?

One person says one thing and another person says another, contradictory, thing, but with each person saying that they are right. So, which one IS the true and right answer? Nothing uwot, me, noax or thedoc has said has contradicted one another. You just don't get it, and never will. Are you trying...

Re: Relativity?

Also, and on this point, what would the actual time be, on a clock, read at alpha centauri compared with a clock on earth, at any "time", but we will can use at the start of the journey if we like? I ask that so people will start thinking about 'time', itself. Some people insist that time is an act...

Re: Relativity?

OK, read your answer to my "clarifying question." The answer is wrong. The answer is wrong, to you. The answer is objectively and empirically wrong. How is it supposedly objectively and empirically wrong? What were the tests done that you say prove it objectively and empirically wrong? BTW, the twi...

Re: Relativity?

But the traveler is going some where. The traveler is going from earth to alpha centauri. Do you even know what an inertial reference frame (IRF) is? No. The frame of X is the frame in which X is stationary. Our traveler is stationary by definition in his own frame, Now I do know how you define 'in...
