People refuse to accept that there is no 'rest' frame. Maybe I should just start saying "Well the speed of light is the same for everyone, let's take it's frame" Then I'll fall to the ground yelling "DIVION BY ZERO!!! ARGH!!! ARGH!!!!!" All comedy aside: Consider a 2d universe on top of a sphere. When someone is moving very quickly up the left side of the shere, would he see events higher up on the right side of the sphere as happening sooner or later than if he weren't moving? (according to our clearly superior rest frame ) The problem with this is: Is it only his 2d space which is contracted or the 3d sphere's space?
