If it isn't correct, where is the error in the derivation?
No, according to the postulate, c is a constant, and the implications of this have been confirmed. If you want to disprove this you must do so experimentally, not by assertion. But you don't get to change what relativity says.
This is one of the reasons why any individual's speculation is supposed to be contained in its own thread; we avoid this kind of confusion where ideas get mixed up or lost. But I fear it's overly optimistic of you to think that people will have read and remembered a thread that was started almost three years ago, is mainly a bunch of links and generated few comments.
BTW, I've moved Inform Physics to speculations where it belongs, and I will split this part into a new thread.
I didn’t write that the derivation of s-SRT from the postulates contains errors, as well as that s-SRT is totally non-correct also – "…in all other aspects standard version of SRT is mighty and convenient mathematical tool, which allows solving seems any practical [but not all!
] problems in mechanics and electrodynamics" (http://arxiv.org/abs/0812.2819
, page 10). "The axiomatization" is non-correct, first of all conceptually, since it is grounded, in fact, on rather questionable suggestion that to keep be "c" the speed of rather commonplace particle, a photon, "in any inertial frame" is necessary that space must transform into time and vice versa – as that, e.g., was formulated in well known Minkovski words (SSDS post of 6 July 2011 - 10:00 AM) – when in the s-SRT there aren’t any of explanations (and so, seems, of an understanding) of "what is the time?" and "what is the space" after all; the real speed of light is equal to c practically in the absolute reference frame only, etc.
All that is in the SSDS posts above, but, since the same problems with understanding of this point again occur, seems that I should add some additional remarks.
So, it can be rigorously proven (see http://arxiv.org/abs/1004.3712
) that Matter in our Universe is an informational system that exists as a [dynamical] subset "Matter” in the set "Universe", which, in turn, is a subset in absolutely infinite Set "Information". The main property of the system "Matter" is that any/every informational exchanges between its elements (interactions between bodies, particles, etc.) happen as an exchange by true information exclusively
. Just therefore nature sciences are capable to study Matter, including by using mathematics.
In the system "Matter" the notions "Time" and "Space", first of all, are: (i) – some specific possibilities
for the Matter’s elements to exist as distinct entities, and (ii) – some specific rules/conditions
that "govern" (with a number of other rules) – how the elements must evolve/ interact. As possibilities and rules both, Space and Time, are "absolute" and "exist forever", including – before the beginning of our Universe; besides – they are independent
on each other and on Matter elements that are governed by these rules
(including on photons).
At that Space separates fixed information, when Time separates dynamic information elements.
The rules are rather similar, but not identical (more differences see http://arxiv.org/abs/0706.3979
), first of all – logically any space step is also the step in time, but not conversely.
A rough example. In a printed text its elements (words and sentences) are divided by "space intervals", but when the text is read by somebody, the space intervals become be "time intervals". When text is reading droningly, those time and space intervals "are equivalent", but if that isn’t so, e.g. if the text is a song, the equivalence disappears.
And only because of the Matter is rather simple "monotonous" dynamical system (a computer where a simple codes run) we observe space/time equivalence – what leads, besides, to that the 2-th postulate is "correct" – if to change the "determined velocity c" on "measured velocity c" though.
It seems enough for this post – I cannot rewrite the links above totally…
P.S. I would like to ask moderators to return the thread "inform physics" to "Physics" section in this forum. It contains a true physics, not a speculation (in contrast to, e.g., the s-SRT), and so it would be better for it to be in its 3-year-old place. And – to correct my account so that this thread appear in the "SSDS posts" option.
