Based on this site's "Sticky" rules I anticipate that this thread may get deleted or moved. I would hope however that it can remain in that I would hope to see some rebuttals of the test and/or the conclusions. Because of the length of this post I must break it into a post and a reply. Thanks. **************************************************** TEST GOAL DESCRIPTION: To evaluate the mathematics of Relativity with respect to time-dilation between observers moving with a linear relative velocity. CASE IN POINT: Given a case where two clocks have been synchronized and are seperating under a relative velocity of 0.9c. Clock "A" is considered the reference clock at rest. Clock "B" is moving away from clock "A" as stated. According to relativity a relative velocity of 0.9c creates a gamma = 2.29416. 1/gamma = 0.435888n or a clocks view of other clocks is that they are operating at only 43.5888% of normal tick rate. Therefore if clock "A" runs a 10 hour test and then stops, "A" sees "B" as having accumulated only 15,692 seconds. At that point in time "B" would have observed "A" as having only run for 6,840 seconds because it sees "A" running t/gamma slower than it's own clock rate. However an issue called "Relativity of Simultaneity" is used which masks the fact that physical clocks in real time cannot posses and/or display two different accumulations of time simultaneously. Simultaneity exists because "B" cannot see "A" shut down, until information about the shut down traverses from "A" to "B". During this added time that "B" is running it is still accumulating time and observes "A" as accumulating time, even though "A" is already shut down and not accumulating time in reality. Relativiity would have us believe that this delay in information as to the actual status of clocks in reality is an actual shift in time. But I believe the following tests show that it is perception only and that time is invariant of relative velocity. I am aware of the muon decay, and atomic clock tests and particle accelerator data, issues but inspite of such supporting data, if time-dilation does not exist then such data must be as a consequence of some alternative but yet undiscoverd cause. TEST 1: SETUP: Each primary clock has onboard a laser and each clock is calibrated to the common beam frequency which is used to maintain constant communication. The doppler shift in this carrier beam represents and can be correlated to relative velocity. One clock is placed under acceleration and it continues to do so for some amount of time and then cuts the thrusters and begins to coast. It has been agreed in advance that once the doppler shift of each others communication beam stablizies that they know they have a fixed linear relative velocity and convert that and find that they are now seperating at 0.9c. Since each clock is incremented proportional to the local light beam frequencey without doppler shift, they will in fact operate at their local proper time flow rate. The magnitude of the doppler shift is converted to display their relative velocity to each other. The clocks are started upon simultaneous receipt of each others unchanging doppler shifted light carrier wave and they modulate the carrier beam in proportion to their local clock rate. The sideband amplitude modulation determines the number of carrier waves cycles per modulated envelope and is converted by an on board monitor to show the other remote clocks actual time in reality by setting the rate of ticks in the monitor to the actual tick rate of the other clock in reality. Since velocity stability can only be determined after at least two increments of light having the same frequency, on the second equal frequency of light or some specified number of such cycles, each clock will start to modulate the side band for the test. Since the speed of light is invariant and equal in both directions each clock will recieve the other clocks modulated packet simultaneously regardless of the delay in its receipt. When the first modulated packet of information arrives the system resets the clock and begins keeping time locally and converting the information being sent by the other clock into a tick rate monitor to allow it to track its actual time in reality. the monitor counter accumulates time in accordance with information about the other clock's accumulated time in reality via about its tick rate. This is because accumulated time in reality is a direct function of a clocks tick rate. Knowing the tick rate it can be converted to accumulated time precisely. Each clock will run for 36,000 seconds local time for the test and then shut down and compare data. From this scenario it can be seen that both clocks will register the same amount of time over time and the remote monitor of the other clocks time disagrees with Relativity in that all clocks and monitors show the same accumulated time simultaneously since this is being done where the relative velocity is constant and the information, albeit delayed, contains information about the other clocks true physical tick rate, hence accumulated time. RESULTS: At the end of the test: A = 36,000 B = 36,000 "A's" Monitor of "B" = 36,000 "B's" Monitor of "A" = 36,000 CONCLUSION: Relativity does not exist in reality. It is a product of misinformation due to using a delayed information system of comparison. One could indeed establish an alternate method of communication using sublight velocities but greater than the seperation rate or relative velocity between the clocks and get even different Relavistic responses. The curves of relativity are a direct function of the method and magnitude of information delay, nothing less, nothing more and that is perception and not physical reality. The physical reality is all time flows at the same rate regardless of relative velocity. 0.9c above can be changed to 0.1c and the results of all measurements of real time accumulation will still be 36,000 seconds. for all clocks and monitors. A relavistically moving observer therefore does not age more slowly than his counter part.
