No, you are the one who thinks only 1 spatial dimension is necessary to describe the movement of objects in 3 dimensional space. LOL. I guess the fact has escaped you for all these years that objects take up volume and things move in the universe in other than parallel directions. You are the one using some special coordinate scheme that magically aligns arbitrarily to every other object in space, and that completely ignores or removes all other existing velocities between frames except those in that very special x dimension.Originally posted by gnome
Did you learn all this at the Ralph Cramden Institute of Physics, or is this your own discovery? You really have a profound misunderstanding of the concept of special relativity (or any relativity, for that matter). For example, the idea of a 4-dimensional universe has clearly escaped you entirely. Even worse, you seem to be suffering from a rather shaky concept of the meaning of "dependent variable", you can't seem to distinguish between the relative motions of frames of reference themselves and the motions of objects within those frames, and you appear to be laboring under the misconception that all motion must be described in relation to some set of UNIVERSAL COORDINATE AXES, aligned with the ether and with its origin presumably identified by the location of the GREAT PUMPKIN.
In short, you really ought to learn to crawl before you try to fly.
