The speed of Murray (t.e.)

Conclusions about the meaning of observations are influenced by the conditions of the observation process.

The speed of Murray running from one goal line to the other, observed from several stationary positions along the sidelines and several moving positions on the sidelines and from helicopters above, is 10.6sec from start to finish. It is possible to conclude from these observations that the speed of Murray is independent of the motion of the observer.

Results of measurements, made by several observers, of the change in distance between the observer and Murray, where some observers are stationary, others are moving in various directions at speeds similar to Murray's, as Murray runs at constant velocity in a straight line, yield different values for the observed speed of Murray. It is possible to conclude from these observations that the speed of Murray is, in part, a function of the speed of the observer.

So far, the only observations of the speed of light have been of the first type.
