We use the light front “machinery” to study the behavior of a relativistic free particle and obtain the quantum commutation relations from the classical Poisson brackets. We argue that their usual projection onto the light-front coordinates from the covariant commutation relations show that there is an inconsistency in the expected correlation between canonically conjugate variables “time” and “energy”. Moreover we show that this incompatibility originates from the very definition of the Poisson…

The four-dimensional Minkowski space-time is broken down into two sectorized Euclidean two-dimensional subspaces, and the Lorentz transformation in the light-front is Euclidean-like
