Relativity, Energy, Speed, Light, Acceleration
- The first postulate of special relativity states that nothing can move faster than the speed of light
in free space.
- The second postulate of special relativity states that the speed of light in free space has the same
value for all observers, regardless of their state of motion.
These postulates clearly emerged from Einstein's head, based only without further analysis, on the
ill-conceived Michelson and Morley experiment and certainly without attempting to the fact that they
calculated velocities such as c + v and c - v ! And Einstein relied exactly on this experiment to
promulgate his theory of special relativity! He never asked "speed in relation to what?".
