So the question is, as gamma is calculated from this triangle, but the triangle SEEMS to be changing as the ship gets further away, does this mean that Time itself will gradually return to normal? That is Time DIlation calculated is only valid for the split second that the moving clock in directly in front of the observer?

Please don't claim that this is an illusion of perspective, as the WHOLE damn hypothesis of Einstein HANGS totally on the stationary observer's PERCEPTION of reality, NOT in reality itself. Einstein always uses the very word, "SEEMS LIKE".

So there we have another reason why SR fails as a hypothesis, its irrational gibberish.

about my post #32

No one has taken a shot at this one? Einstein depends on the "point of view", the "appearance" of events, how events SEEM to the observer. AND he insists that the observer is kept ignorant about key things such as if he is moving or not. So here is the accurate apparent path that the light pulse would have.

Now let's see you do the math to come up with time dilation.
