Supported through a century of investigation, experimental support, and observational evidence, relativity is accepted as being conceptually sound, mathematically correct, and theoretically valid.

An Observer-inclusive Hypothesis Suggesting a Reduction of the Perceived Universe to String Interactions

Physics and neuroscience share overlapping objectives, the major of which is probably the attempt to reduce the observed universe to a set of rules. The approaches are complementary, attempting to

The Traveling Twins Paradox

A modified version of the Twin Paradox (TP), termed the Traveling Twins Paradox (TTP), is described. In the TTP, the twins move towards each other, via two identical fast vehicles, from two starting

The Dynamics of Moving Bodies without Lorentz's Invariance Part I: time and distance transformations

The present article proposes a theory of relativity which disentangles Einstein's relativistic approach from Lorentz's invariance principle, the latter being basically an Ether theory. This

The Results of Recent Neutrino Velocity Experiments Disprove Special Relativity Theory

The time dilation predicted by Special Relativity Theory is completely determined by the Lorentz Factor. The Invariance Principle, expressed in γ, puts two categorical constraints on the velocity β:

Why E Is Not Equal to mc 2

We show that Einstein’s famous formula E = mc2 is actually the sum of two quantum parts, namely E = mc2/22 of the quantum particle and E = mc2 (21/22) of the quantum wave. We use first

Unsolved Problems in Special and General Relativity. 21 collected papers

Einstein’s general theory of relativity cannot explain the perihelion motion of Mercury. His explanation, based on wrong integral calculus and arbitrary approximations, is a complete failure.

A treatment of the twin paradox based on the assumption of an instantaneous acceleration

We investigate the twin paradox assuming the acceleration acts instantaneously on one of the twins and that its effect is just to revert the relative movement of the twins keeping the same relative

A Treatment of the Twin Paradox Based on the Assumption of an Instantaneous Acceleration

We investigate the twin paradox assuming the acceleration acts instantaneously in one of the twins and whose effect is just to revert the relative movement of the twins keeping the same relative

Special Theory of Relativity

Two years ago I pointed out1 what appears to be an inconsistency in the kinematical part of Einstein's special theory of relativity. I repeated this in a slightly different form in a volume published
