Master Theory (edition 2)
Consider a light clock with a pair of vertical mirrors (one on our left, the other - on the right) and a beam of photons between them:
- distance between the mirrors
- period of the clock:
Now let the observer move with a speed (right to left and back) (
). The clock (in observer's frame) will move as follows:
Because the speed of light in all a inertial reference frames (IRF
) is invariable, then (from the viewpoint of an observer) time of flight of the photon beam from mirror to mirror in different directions will be different, inasmuch as moving in one direction - move opposite to the mirror (flight time is lesser), moving in the opposite direction - will in pursuit of mirror (flight time is bigger). Total time (there and back) are changing:How can this be?
This is so indeed: the clock nothing to do with the observer do not have. Any properties of the clock can not depend of acrobatic exercises of the observer. Conclusion: a visual-distance between the mirrors changes:
The longitudinal scale is clear. We proceed to investigate the cross-scale. For this we consider the light clock with a pair of horizontal mirrors (one - from the bottom, the other - from the top):
and the observer move.
Light will travel long distances over the same time. But light can not move faster "light's speed". Again we change a visual-distance between the mirrors changes:
From the Pythagorean theorem follows:
a result is Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
a result is Master Theory
For each of the intermediate values (
) we can construct theories have, and each of the which (infinitely many) will have as much right to exist as the SRT
. But only in the case - time is absolutely, therefore only Master Theory
can claim the right to approximate the property of space and time. All other theories (including SRT
) - false.
