All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

relative simultaneity, Einstein’s synchronization


The Einstein’s criterion (EinCr) for synchronization can be simplified to yield one-way synchronizing light signals which is similar to what is adopted in the theory of universal space and time (TUST) for setting up a global time in an inertial frame. The simplified form is used to prove that synchronization is an equivalence relation on the set of synchronized clocks. The shortcomings of EinCr are discussed, and it is point out that the knowledge of the distance of any event from a master observer, allows for forgoing with the clock at the event’s location, and consequently, dispensing with clocks in a coordinatized space, excluding of course the master clock. Einstein’s argument for relative simultaneity is proven to stand short of associating different times with different inertial frames as dictated by Lorentz transformations. The second type of scaling transformation in (TUST) which was presented in earlier works, associates with a synchronizing light trip one time to which there corresponds two distances in the moving and stationary frames. The duration of the light’s trip and its length in the moving frame are shown to be identical with relativistic predictions. The primitive concept of simultaneity by contiguity is introduced and explained briefly; its full disagreement with relativity theory will be highlighted in a future work. Ironically, Einstein’s arguments for relative simultaneity relied on the latter concept.
