Special Relativity, Emission Theory, Ether Theory, Galilean transformation, Lorentz transformation, time alteration, Doppler Effect
Applying basic classical physics concepts of time and space, while considering event information is ultimately communicated through light, it was shown that proper time interval measured in an inertial reference frame (labeled as traveling “object frame”) between two co-local events occurring at the frame origin undergoes apparent alteration and perceived as a “time image” in another inertial frame (labeled as stationary “image frame”), when the two frames are in relative motion. It was shown through obtained modified Galilean transformations that “apparent” length contraction and expansion were associated with “apparent” time dilation and contraction, respectively. The known classical Doppler Effect was readily.
In the case the Special Relativity approach was considered, an ad hoc assumption was required, imposing an artificial transformation, leading to the Lorentz transformation, applicable under special conditions of the space coordinates. Misconceptions in the Special Relativity were systematically revealed.
Self-contradiction in the Lorentz transformation was revealed in connection with the time contraction for approaching frames.
The known relativistic Doppler Effect was readily derived. For the case of light, the perceived frequency exhibiting a blue shift in the case of approaching frames, was in line with the established time contraction in this study, contradicting the Special Relativity prediction of time dilation
