Report Ralfativity in Physics and Mathematics Posted yesterday at 02:23 AM · Edited yesterday at 02:25 AM by ralfcis Let us begin to construct the mathematical framework for ralfativity. There are 3 axes ( ct, ct' and x) plotted on a Cartesian coordinate system. There is no 2nd Minkowski coordinate system so equations like the Lorentz transforms do not exist. Because the two time axes ct and ct' look to be in distance units, relativists declare that time is a 4th spatial dimension. This is not true if you algebraically derive relativity's equations from the main equation which defines there is only one velocity in the universe (c) that has velocity through space (v) and velocity through time vt components. The faster you are observed to go through space, the slower you are observed to go through time. The relativistic combo equation similarly limits the combination of any two relative velocities through space to c. c2 = v2 +vt2 also written as the gamma function Y = c(c2-v2)-1/2 ( vt = c/Y ). https://photos.app.goo.gl/c864tipaU1ZLRGNX6 Ratios of the various axes define different types of velocity and the reciprocals of those velocities represent different types of lines of simultaneity (not shown and not important for now). What is important is the 1/slope of the .6c line represents the velocity (x/ct) the stationary observer sees with his clock while x/ct' = Yv =.75c is the velocity the moving observer sees using his own clock. The distance common to both is invariant and proper and does not require any assumption of length contraction or reference to the stationary clock. Using this info about Yv, algebraically multiply both sides of Y = c(c2-v2)-1/2 by v Yv = cv(c2-v2)-1/2 =x/ct' and v=x/ct and you get the main equation as (ct')2 = (ct)2 - x2 which represents all 3 axes. It could have just as easily been written as t'2 = t2 - x2 /c2 which would have led to the conclusion that all distance axes were really time axes according to relativist's logic. The time axis and length axes cannot be joined into the concept of spacetime because time does not behave like a distance axis and their lame logic does not make it so. I will next show how the simple spacetime diagram I showed here can be combined with light signals to define the basic mathematical building block for relativity. Time slowing during constant relative velocity is an illusion. What causes that illusion is a mismatch in how start and end times are recorded differently from each perspective. Relativity of simultaneity causes the illusion of time dilation because perspective observations are illusion.
