In this Episode, I present Part 1 of a 2 part series that I delivered at this year’s AAAS/NPA conference held at the University of New Mexico. This presentation looks at the impact of bi-directional movement in generating the equations associated with moving systems. It establishes the foundational equations that are used by the leading models (e.g., Einstein, Lorentz, Michelson-Morley) as well as by the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems. This presentation also uses the math associated with an Incomplete Coordinate System to graphically explain key mathematical elements that are found in Einstein’s 1905 paper.

## Episode 9 – The importance of distinguishing between lengths and points

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.
