Speculations in Science & Technology

Dear Jack,

Just a few observations on principles regarding my relativity...

Basically, Einstein had : Time Dilation & Length Contraction

I have : "Time Contraction & Length Dilation"

An example: if C_{A} is 304475873.2 m/sec and V_{A} is 53198115.45 m/sec then one "would" expect C_{R} to be C_{A}-V_{A} = 251277757.8 m/sec.

But now whilst you're on the moving earth, you reach back and "appraise" the V_{A} in reference to your relative speed: it will appear to be going at only 43,903,324.84 m/sec...you then add the two to get an overall relative speed:- 251277757.8 + 43903324.84 gives you 295181082.6 m/sec... BINGO! You've got "Time Contraction" the true relative speed is 299792458 m/sec!

Hence to account for the Time Contraction, one "Dilates" the length, hence the speed of 251277757.8 -> 255203267 and the speed of the earth goes from 43903324.84 -> 44589191.01.

This is just a "Reality Safety Check" to make sure that everything in my relativity is working well!!

Love to you and Caroll
