  1. This should probably be in a thread of its own,...

    This should probably be in a thread of its own, as it's worthy of one. I'll need to think on that a wee bit further. We do depict a bodily progression upon an x vs y 2-space figure (time implied),...
  2. Good point. I'd say that if numerous geniuses...

    Good point. I'd say that if numerous geniuses all come up with the same solns independently, then that would be worth something. Also, if it matched independent computer analyses, or was at least...
  3. I'm no expert either, but I would think there to...

    I'm no expert either, but I would think there to be a density of flux lines (not thinner or thicker), and nearer the gravity source then the higher the density of gravitation field lines (flux). At...
  4. Yes. It's like imagining the realm of a flat...

    Yes. It's like imagining the realm of a flat lander, a person who perceives only 2-space + time person on a flat sheet of paper. He exists only on the surface of the sheet. That's all the...
  5. That's fine. That's only to say that you refer...

    That's fine. That's only to say that you refer to any existent ether as spacetime, which is curved everywhere, and hence gravity is everywhere. There is presently no need to inject the notion of an...

    The ether of the 1800s was presumed to allow for the motion of light. Nowadays, the ether is presumed a medium that allows for and supports the existence and propagation of fields in general, be it...
  7. True, because the z-axis is essentially not...

    True, because the z-axis is essentially not presented.



    Agreed.



    If z/z' is also presented, the shape is 4 dimensional, yes. That's hard the wrap one's head around. The helix, is a...

    OEMB: The introduction of a “luminiferous ether” will prove to be superfluous inasmuch as the view here to be developed will not require an “absolutely stationary space” provided with special...
  9. Agreed, it would make things a little more...

    Agreed, it would make things a little more difficult. However, it should be the same shape (helix) no matter what in the 4 dimensional continuum. One would just have to add coordinates for z' (and...
  10. Agreed. The skewed helix is just another form of...

    Agreed. The skewed helix is just another form of a helix. A perfect helix is per the frame of the axle, given the stationary POV and the symmetry of the disk and uniformity of the rotation. I just...
  11. True, however regarding the ether, relativity...

    True, however regarding the ether, relativity makes no call except this ... any absolute reference for motion is superfluous to the relativity theory, even if the relativistic effects are driven by...
  12. However, before those "years ago", you had just...

    However, before those "years ago", you had just as much difficulty with the SR basics as you do today here.

    As stated many times, no one will help you with those more difficult issues, until you...
  13. It doesn't matter. It's a convention, meaning a...

    It doesn't matter. It's a convention, meaning a man made agreed upon choice. While there can always be arguments against any conventions, their are benefits to having them that outweigh the...
  14. No it wasn't. For the past year here, and for...

    No it wasn't. For the past year here, and for many years before that, every time you realized you found yourself backed in a corner regarding the operation of LTs and basic relativistic principles...
  15. But the rod's rest length calculation would be...

    [/quote]

    But the rod's rest length calculation would be correct no matter if the x-direction related "velocity and length" were the same for the two bodies or not. So one must ask, what was your...

    Mayflow,

    All velocities are strictly per POV. As such, any inertial body may be stationary per itself (or those comoving with it), or that same body is moving per those who move relatively wrt...

    I'm glad you brought this question up JT. When I free up a little more here, and after I think it through further, I'll start a new thread in relation to this. Basically regarding the relativistic...
  18. Indeed. It follows a cycloid thru space over...

    Indeed. It follows a cycloid thru space over time. Would you figure it more correct to say it travels a helix thru spacetime, or that it exists as a helix in spacetime?

    I would add ......
  19. I brought up cycloids because of a specific...

    I brought up cycloids because of a specific point, ie how the LTs apply to axes of motion and uniform velocity. That's all the LTs work for, in their own right, alone. Each atom on your cord of the...
  20. I see. I was just wondering, because I had...

    I see. I was just wondering, because I had always found the .PNG files viewed better than the .JPG files when i posted them. Not sure why I experienced that, but you have not. No big deal. Yes,...

    Only problem, cinci doesn't want to learn how to read spacetime diagrams :)

    After having answered his questions again and again, I'm hoping that cincirob is manufacturing a new argument of sort....

    VeeDee,

    Next time you post a Loedel, try saving the graphics file as a .PNG file format (portable network graphics), and then post that (versus a .JPG). I have found that the picture quality is...

    The smiley face is "essentially undistorted", yes. Technically speaking though, given a single atom at rest is defined by (its field, say) a tiny spherical region of spacetime, only that which would...
  24. You are right. Atoms higher up on the wheel are...

    You are right. Atoms higher up on the wheel are more contracted, generally speaking, because they move faster. The atom at ground contact is virtually stationary wrt the ground, and as such...
  25. Not to mention, each atom of cinci's horizontal...

    Not to mention, each atom of cinci's horizontal cord in the axle POV has a different length wrt x, even though the atoms are proper-round before relativistic effects alter that. He doesn't seem to...
