ynchronization paradox, relative time, global time
The arguments behind adopting “different times” in different inertial
frames, enunciated by Lorentz, Poincare, and Einstein, are investigated critically. It is shown that light’s speed independence of the relative velocity between the light’s source and the receiver does not follow from relativity principle. A simplest derivation of Lorentz transformations is given and a peculiar feature arising from relative simultaneity is presented. A comparison is made between the duration and length of a light trip as specified by relativity theory and the theory of universal space and time.
