This topic is one of our very best.
It could test the system Einstein
outlined in the first few pages
of Relativity....that is, we must
all be on the same page...using the
same definition for our terms.

It doesn't matter what proper time
"really" means. It only matters that
we defined it for our discussion.
It's surprising that we have a
controversy still. Surely this matter,
as important as it is, is a good exercise
For some of us, even if it were only a mirage.
I'm not usually a buyer of crackpot theories. I think the main reason I haven't understood
the whole issue yet is that bruce and luis, when
they're debunking Dr. Dick, are too
terse, as if it is too much trouble
to explain the whole thing to some
dummies like us...And they are not
"exactly responsive" to my questions.
Yanniru's argument with Dr. Dick was too
murky for me to know who was more right.

Dr. Dick's rhetoric is much closer to
that of a person with all his cards face up.
Yet it may be just an exercise.
Alan is fooling around with me
and has neither my endorsement nor my denial.
And why should anyone care what I think?
And when I figure it all out, who should I tell?

Email is insecure, too.
