Believe me, I'm less stupid than my posts suggest. The problem is that my thoughts evolve but I can't go back and delete old posts, so people are never sure what I'm really thinking. Can't blame anyone...

>> I think aurino is getting close to understanding the reason for Michelson and Morley's experiments. That is the first step in comprehending the problem relativity is supposed to solve > Once he understands the situation from their perspective, then he needs to accept the results of their experiment. > At this moment, I don't think he really understands what is meant by the statement "the speed of light is a constant in all frames". > If light is to have the same speed in all frames, then the advancing front of the light flash must be a sphere centered on the origin in both frames. In classical physics, that statement is a contradiction.
