yes, the x ,y and z axes change as velocity changes. i'd left the y and z out for simplicity.
the axis that changes the most would be the one aligned with the direction of the velocity.
i agree, Each of the "dimensions" i named is changed in relation to other "dimensions" by relative motion.

permitt a small quote sir:
"If relative motion is not a dimension, it is the universal medium in which the other dimensions dance."

agreed.

"Seems to me that motion is spatial and time is
abstract and subjective. Motion could be a dimension without time"

i'd like to know what Dr. Dick would say about this. i might agree in one special case. will have to think more about this.

regards tim
