From equation 1 T = t + d/C since t = d/v then: T = do /v Therefore: do /v = d/v + d/C do = d (1+v/C) ........................................………………5 T and do is the respective time and distance travelled by the car, as measured by the stationary observer. t and d is the respective time and distance travelled by the car as measured by the car or a clock attached to the car. d/C is the change in the physical property of the light wave, which is also a change in the period of the light waves that were emitted when the car is at rest and when it is in motion.. This effect has been misinterpreted by other writers who claim that light travels a longer distance in a moving frame and thereby causing time to run differently in different frames. But it is very clear from the above derivation of time and distance that light travels through the same distance in all frames and time also runs the same in all frames. But what happens is that, when a disturbance is created in the waves of light due to the motion of an object, this disturbance does not just die out of existence. It goes on to affect the observation and measurements of all observers who depend on the light waves for their observation and measurement. This change in the physical property of the light waves can make physical measurements of different frames to appear relative depending on the magnitude of the disturbance produced in the waves of light.. The laws of physics are very absolute in the sense that in reality, light travels the same distance relative to every frame BUT the laws of physics could be relative in the sense that in measurement, observers of different frames might measure different values for the distance travelled by the light waves as a result of the behavior of light waves which I explained above. Also, the measurements of some frames are better/more valid than the measurement of other frames, depending on the resultant change in the physical property of the light waves from both the system of the observer and the event being observed. It seems from the derived mathematical equations that the measurements recorded by a person attached to the frame of the event are always more accurate, and this must be because of the fact that the person attached to the frame of event does not depend on the surrounding light waves for its measurement. Of course, no one needs light waves to walk from point A to point B but someone surely needs light waves to know that an object has moved from point A to point B. It does follow that (The motion of the Car results in changes in the physical properties of the waves (Doppler's Effect); The changes in the physical properties of the light waves results in changes/Relativistic Effects in the measurements of observers of different frames). In the earlier versions of this proposition, this, I was referring to as "Nwobu's Effect" ( T - t = ƛ - ʎ /C = d/C ). Conclusions From The Above Equations 1. The velocity of any matter travelling through space is independent of any frame observing and measuring its motion. 2. Some matters can travel faster than the speed of light. 3. Some frames are better than others in the measurement of physical quantities. 4. Time runs the same in all frames even though our measuring devices may record otherwise. 5. Relative and absoluteness co-exist. 6. Between two or more inertial reference frames, an event which is present tense to one frame may not be present tense to other frames but may be past or future tense to other frames 7. Optical observation of our past time/world and its mathematical estimation is perfectly possible. 8. The future is not optically visible but is mathematically solvable.

For instance the Michelson Morley experiment which measured the speed of light as a constant regardless of reference frame. Its not just a matter of opinion.

As a member of the physics help forum and someone who is a fan of this page, i thought it would be a good idea to share with fellow members my idea but my apologies if sharing ideas (personal & main stream) on science is not accepted on this page.. thank you for the correction.
 Aug 27th 2015, 07:01 PM #6 Junior Member   Join Date: Feb 2015 Posts: 17 thank you Kiwiheretic, yes, you are right. i did not talk about the whole concepts in relativity. the Michelson Morley experiment measured the speed of light as a constant regardless of reference frame, and i agree with that. The maths of my article also agrees that not just the speed of light would have to be constant, the speed of every other matter would also be constant regardless of reference frame. i think where you disagree with me would be on the part where i concluded "The velocity of any matter travelling through space is independent of any frame observing and measuring its motion." It is ok to disagree with people but it is best to give reason for the disagreement. thanks

You are trying to describe the problem as a Doppler Effect. But that effect is wholely determined by the presence of a Medium throughu which (sound) propagates. The M-M experiment APPEARED to show that Light was obstinate when covering distance. Because Space (so we believe) contains nothing whatever then it becomes axiomatic that Light DOES NOT propagate? The Problem then is what exactly IS Light? and how does it travel? Ken Green

On second thought I may have been wrong about that. I searched the forum and all the rules and found nothing that you were violating. Therefore please ignore that comment.

Doppler's effect is all about the effect of motion of a source of waves on the properties of the waves.. My article is about the Effect of the change in the properties of waves on the measurement of observers. these are very different phenomena although they are somehow connected. on my little blog where i posted the full article, i wrote this conclusion: "Change in the motion of the light source results to change in the wavelength of the emitted light waves; the change in the wavelength of the light waves results to the relative difference/change in the measurements of the clocks of the stationary observer & the moving source of light" ( T - t = ƛ - ʎ /C = d/C ) The M-M experiment which shows that speed of light is constant, should rather serve as an evidence pointing the possibility that speed, in general, is constant for all matter irrespective of the frame of the observer. Regarding what Light really is, I'd like to say that i didnt dig to such deep extent yet since it did not prevent me from writing my article but i would prefer to maintain the definition that "Light is an electromagnetic wave with the famous speed of C, and it falls into the visible spectrum that helps our eyes to make observations and measurement. Let me know if there is something else you dont agree with. Enjoy the Christmas..
