By the way, it's not possible to shield an electric field.
That's funny, Google has lots on Electrostatic screening.

And what's that funny foil stuff between the primary and secondary of a transformer, labelled electrostatic screen for then?

The reason you feel that no one has addressed your questions is because you have been denying the validity of the answers. You've been answered many times. Space-time is very unlike the usual 3D space and is based on what is called an "indefinite metric." This causes a number of problems in understanding the so called "paradoxes."

Just to put my two cents in before I close this thread: Have you considered that the reason the two time frames seem to be making no sense is that the two experiments (one measuring the outward speed, the second measuring the inbound speed) is that the two paths are not the same? Graph it.

If you wish to continue this in another thread, please feel free. But please make sure to take a look at the answers you get instead of the answers that you want to believe.

I'm a "something shiny" kind of...Oh look! Something shiny!
