Eckard,

"Virtually all experts are ignoring your attack on the second postulate, the postulate of constant c"

Yes, but then they inadvertently refute it. The discussion of the Doppler effect in light (moving observer), even when taking into account relativistic effects, unavoidably leads to the conclusion that the speed of light (relative to the observer) varies with the speed of the observer, in violation of Einstein's relativity. There are countless examples, just three of...


Pentcho,

We certainly agree on that GR claims to be based on SR and the postulates of SR are questionable. Virtually all experts are ignoring your attack on the second postulate, the postulate of constant c, perhaps mainly because constant c seems to be experimentally well confirmed and GR might render it a special case.

Some proponents of SR claimed that the second postulate and the first one, the so called postulate of relativity, are not independent from each...


Hello Ms Ford,

Indeed ,fortunally that human beings have free will. The solutions, rational and objective exist at universal scale,we can harmonize this planet.

My garden is very small and all my plants are in compost, I test the compost on several families of plants.It is ok. My garden is in spherisation :)
