Get More by Giving

When lending a helping hand goes a long way

Here at Startup Grind, we know a thing or two about giving back. Our entire business model is built on that very idea! Back when Derek started SG out of his garage (I’m sure you’ve all heard the story), it was based off a need he saw for many entrepreneurs and startup founders – to learn from people who had been through it, successfully and unsuccessfully. And because there’s no school or college major for “Working Your Butt Off to Get Your Idea Off the Ground”, he realized that the way to accomplish that was for people to share their techniques, stories and connections with the people that needed it the most. Derek thought, if everyone offered a little bit of their expertise to others just for the sake of being kind and helpful, new founders could be a lot more prepared and better off.

Fast-forward 10 years, we’ve had tens of thousands of speakers donate their time to our attendees, our directors spend long hours building and maintaining communities in their cities, and our HQ makes sure the wheels keep turning all across the globe. We invite you to think about one way to give back this month and let us know how it goes.

Fwd: Special Relativity – a geometric refutation

Dear Horst,

1. Obviously there is a length contraction in xi direction, when v is in direction of +xi, but there is a length expansion in negative xi direction at the same time. This should make a big difference in observation, when, in the moving system k, a length is measured in backward direction. Is ths true?

The major axis of the ellipsoid in k is greater than the minor axis thereof; the minor axis in turn is equal to the diameter of the sphere in K. Thus the diameter is elongated by the Lorentz Transformation.

2. The theory of relativity would be consistent, if tau in eqs. (6) and (7) were identical. Replacing c by c*q with an adjustable factor q … assume that the factor q is identical with the inverse of n in your calculation.

Since n > 1, 1/n < 1, in which case the parameterisation by n would be ruined. Lorentz Transformation does not permit transformation of K system-time t to a system-time for k.

Kind regards,
Steve

Stephen,

this is an highly interesting article, maybe revolutionary. I have a question and a comment.

Equating both expressions gives a quadratic equation for q with solutions:

or, when the sign of v is changed:

I assume that the factor q is identical with the inverse of n in your calculation. For q=v/c we obtain tau=0, but for q=v/(2c) I obtain a complex-valued tau.

Nevertheless there is an the interesting point. Myron Evans had shown in UFT papers 324/325 that the deflection of light by gravitation can simply be explained by a gamma factor of

gamma = 1/sqrt(1 – v^2/(2 c^2)).

This gives gamma=sqrt(2) for v –> c. Thus it is possible that a photon has a mass despite of travelling with speed of light. This result may point into the direction of you findings.

ABSTRACT. The Special Theory of Relativity demands, by Einstein’s two postulates (i) the Principle of Relativity
and (ii) the constancy of the speed of light in vacuum, that a spherical wave of light in one inertial system
transforms, via the Lorentz Transformation, into a spherical wave of light (the Lorentz sphere) in another inertial
system when the systems are in constant relative rectilinear motion. However, the Lorentz Transformation
in fact transforms a spherical wave of light into a translated ellipsoidal wave of light even though the speed of
light in vacuum is invariant. The Special Theory of Relativity is logically inconsistent and therefore invalid.
