Episode 9 – The importance of distinguishing between lengths and points

Posted by Steven Bryant On December - 8 - 2007

In Episode 9, we will explore the importance of distinguishing between lengths and points. The accepted definition of Special Relativity assumes the transformation equations converts a point from one coordinate system into a point in another coordinate system; hence the term “space-time points.” This episode shows that the equations are actually used to transform lengths, not points, primarily due to the bi-directional movement inherent in the derivation. While this finding further challenges the theoretical interpretation of Special Relativity, it is consistent with the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems.
