Alex, you may vey well be right, however only in three dimensions.

Perhaps you lack the mental cpcacity to think in terms of FOUR dimensions. Afterall, if you leave, turn around, and return to the same coodinate in space (3 dimensions)... you are nonetheless at a different coodinate in space-time (4 dimensions).

Please review the Minkowski Metric and do some homework...

ds2 = c2dt2 - dx2 - dy2 - dz2

Also please review Lorentz formula while you're at it; you may as well get ALL your facts straight before engaging in discussion of relativity...

t' = t0/(1 - v2/c2)1/2 ...where t' represents passage of time for object in motion with velocity v, AS MEASURED BY OBSERVER SPECIFIED TO BE AT REST with proper-time t0.
