**About Time!**

This paper has such a obvious ring of truth about it, one can only hope that the misconceptions are finally laid to rest, and we can move forward, for there is Relativistic change in the air.

Here is an interesting paragraph:In special relativity, redshifts arise directly from velocities. It was this idea that led

Hubble in 1929 to convert the redshifts of the “nebulae” he observed into velocities,and predict the expansion of the universe with the linear velocity-distance law that now bears his name. The general relativistic interpretation of the expansion interprets

cosmological redshifts as an indication of velocity since the proper distance between comoving objects increases. However, the velocity is due to the rate of expansion of space, not movement through space, and therefore cannot be calculated with the special relativistic Doppler shift formula. Hubble & Humason’s calculation of velocity

therefore should not be given special relativistic corrections at high redshift, contrary to their suggestion.

There is a simple thought experiment that can break a number of chains, I have been waiting for the right paper to surface with just the right amount of clarity so I can put the experiment into a perspective frame. I will dig out from my annuls of paperwork, and place it here for inspection.
