The event to the observer does not take time.
Because a lot of observers are rest at a certain inertia system, they are watching events, and record the time of events.
Section 1 is just on an inertia system.
Lorenz formula is used in Section 2and 3.between two inertia systems K and K

You should read this attachment.
J.P. van der Weele and J.H. Snoeijer had done this work.

It may have some help for you .

I don't need help with it. I just thought my example seems to "bend" Physics in a more disruptive way than yours does.

But thanks for the thought.

topsquark ,There is no contradiction in your example. You must consider that there is no absolute rigid body.
" Beyond the pole-barn paradox.pdf " has a detailed discussion of your example.

I am well aware that the "paradoxes" in SR (and GR) aren't really paradoxes and that they are, in fact, good teaching tools.

I must have misunderstood the point of this thread. I thought you didn't know how to resolve these paradoxes and that was why you posted it.

Can you help me ?
