Einstein’s Simple Mathematical Trick –and the Illusion of a Constant Speed of Light


  •  Conrad Ranzan    

Abstract

It is shown how Einstein achieves the illusion of lightspeed invariance by employing a simple mathematical trick—and magically abolishing the aether. As if part of a "conspiracy" against man's efforts to obtain knowledge of the physical world, Nature has a “trick” of its own in providing the illusion of lightspeed invariance. The illusion works remarkably well, thanks to length contraction and clock slowing both of which are induced by absolute motion with respect to aether. Einstein’s illusion and Nature’s illusion, however, conceal the physical reality that the one-way speed of light, contrary to a strict interpretation of Einstein’s 2nd postulate, is NOT constant.
