Einstein’s Train(and the lightning strikes)
Well what can we say about this; one of the most discussed thought experiments conceived by Einstein; yet one of the most misunderstood pieces in all of Relativity. When I first read chapter IX of Einsteinâ€™s wonderful exposition: ‘Relativity: The … Continue reading

Newtonian vs Relativistic Mechanics
Einsteinâ€™s Theories of Relativity led to a revolution in our understanding of the movement of bodies, particularly at speeds approaching that of light in an empty medium. The mathematics of which are unassailable, having been proven in so many practical … Continue reading

New theory of gravity?
An epiphanic moment of realisation this pm. driving home from Peterhead. Gravity is a relativistic effect. It is due to interdimensional rotation into a 5th dimension. (I am still unsure whether this should be, or could be, described as a … Continue reading
Special Relativity solved/completed
I always said that problem solving was my ‘Special’ skill! And today I did it. Special Relativity has been solved! Einstein’s theory has 3 holes due to his unwillingness or inability to wholeheartedly accept the consequences of his own theory: … Continue reading
An explanation of what Time is
Time is a somewhat nebulous concept, for although we can measure it with fantastic accuracy, can understand its effects (e.g. the passage of time) and can deal with it mathematically in a plethora of different ways, it is very difficult … Continue reading

So what is Special Relativity; what does it do?
What is special relativity?Every system of coordinates can map the whole of Spacetime but how do we take the measurements, the coordinates from one system and convert them to be relative to another system of coordinates?To put it another way; … Continue reading

Does time exist?
Does time exist? Or, did it exist before the invention of the clock? What is a clock measuring? Is it measuring anything? All it is doing is making comparisons, “what was the duration of this compared to that?” All actions, … Continue reading
