We need to remind ourselves often that relativity phenomena was well known
and settled before Einstein contributed his input. If anything, Einstein
only confused the concept by introducing variable space-time.
Before that, everyone
knew very well why the distortions of material things happened. They knew
the cause and the effect of the cause.
This PDF note by M. N. Macrossan of Queensland University describes documents
about the cause of relativity. All were published before Einstein published.
The cause was known to be that all of nature was comprised of photons. Nature
was related to the speed of light because nature was made of light. Einstein
knew about this. We know this for sure because H. Ziegler discussed it
with him. The link is to a paper published by Einstein in which there is
a note about the discussion.
It is time that we rid ourselves of the nonsense idea of warped space and time
and get back to the simplicity of the true nature of the universe. Space and time
are not distorted by movement of objects in it. Objects are distorted by movement
because the objects are comprised of a fundamental component that must always
move at the constant speed of light. Many great discoveries await that can only
be realized when we consider the correct composition of matter.
Quantum Mechanics is quite happy with the disjointed idea of warped space-time.
The notion takes QM off the hook for explaining relativity phenomena. But when
we correctly explain that relativity phenomena results directly and naturally
from the composition of matter, the fundamental principal behind Quantum
Mechanics theory is not possible. It is not possible that forces are conveyed
by the exchange of virtual particles. Virtual, by the way, means imaginary.
They are not even real.
