Dear Prof. Gerard 't Hooft
I kindly ask you to read my article, "The Correct Theoretical Analysis
of the Foundations of the Special Theory of Relativity".

**Abstract:** The correct theoretical analysis of the generally accepted foundations
of the special theory of relativity is proposed. The principle of the unity of
formal logic and dialectics is a methodological basis of the analysis. The result is
as follows: the foundations (i.e., the interpretation of Michelson-Morley's
experimental data and calculations, the contraction hypothesis and the Lorentz
transformation formulae, concept of space-time, Einstein's formula expressing
equivalence of mass and energy) contain logical errors and are not consequence
of any postulates. The existence of logical errors is irrefutable proof of
incorrectness of the special theory of relativity. The following correct theories
and principles are proposed: theory of time; theory of space; the quantum
theory of constancy of light speed; the principle of equivalency of mass and
energy; the principle of objectivity of human knowledge; the theory of system
of reference.

Even if you don't like its logic, the Special (and the General) Theory of Relativity works remarkably well.
The only changes you can bring about is in the names you attach to things. I don't care much about that.
