Let me tell you a little secret. There is an error in the 1905 Special Relativity theory that Einstein corrected with the General Relativity theory. There is no time or clock paradox in General Relativity because only one clock slows down at a time. In the original 1905 theory, Einstein had both clocks slowing down at the same rate at the same time, and that turned out to be an error, which he corrected later in the GR theory.Originally posted by cucumber
the problem is, that i do not see how time can be slowed down for both at the same time (no pun intended); time dilation should only occur for the one moving at near c, but if there is no reference frame, who experiences time dilation???
do both guys see the other guy moving in slow-motion?
if they do, i need to seriously refine my concept of time...
