Nwobu’s effect is an optical theory of relativity that explains the principle of physical observation. It occurs when observing moving bodies, like airplane at a very high altitude, and makes the observer to see the plane to be moving AS THOUGH its speed is decreasing as it moves away from a stationary observer and vice-versa. The Slow motion of the moon across the sky is caused by Nwobu’s Effect. It is responsible for the opposite motion of the road-side trees as seen by a person in a fast moving car. It is also used to explain the reduction in the size of an object (e.g. trees at a very far distance, plane at high altitude, point-like size of the stars on the sky etc) as seen by an observer, especially, when the object is moving away and vice-versa. I observed this phenomenon and started solving it mathematically but it latter, turned out to be a Special Theory Of Relativity. NOTE: for the above example, time is actually what varies and not speed.


we are all aware that objects visible to our eyes are visible because reflected or emitted light rays from those objects enter our eyes.
It takes light 8 minutes to travel from the sun to us here on earth and since our observation of events are possible only when light from those event go into our eyes, it therefore implies that any events which happens on the sun and we see it, is actually an events which took place 8 minutes ago and this difference in the time-conclusion of the earth and sun observer is not because of relative motion or because of constancy of light speed or any other cause but because of the delay in our perception of the exact time of occurrence of events caused by light signal as a result of the fact that there is a distance of separation between the observer and the event which the light signal must cover in order to inform the observer about the time of occurrence of the event. Observation of our early world is possible.

Imaging two observers, who are on the earth and on the sun respectively such that both of them forms a straight line, say, ABC, where A and C are the two endings of the straight line and B is the middle of the straight line. let us take that the earth observer is at point A and the sun observer at point B and that for some minutes, the distance AB is constant throughout the time of this thought experiment, and that the sun observer is provided with a source of light which he will use to release light pulse for this thought experiment in the direction BC.

From the above, if an observer on the sun should release light pulse and note that he released the light pulse at 8:00am, a similar observer on earth will say that the light pulse was release at 8:08am because it takes light signal 8mins to relay the signal of the event of the solar observer to the observer on earth. If the sun and earth observer now set out to measure the time for the light pulse to travel a distance BC, everybody can agree that the observer on the sun switches on his clock and starts measurement at 8:00am whereas the observer on the earth switches on his clock and starts measurements on that same light pulse at 8:08am, which is the time he receives the signal that the light pulse has been released.
A well thinking reader can easily believe that the observer on the earth starts his time recording at the time when the released light pulse has traveled a distance, say one-fifth of BC, which is equivalent to the distance BA, from the sun to the earth, as a result of the fact that the signal stimulating the earth observer about the time of release of the light pulse, delayed by amount time equal to the distance BA divided by the speed of the light signal, whereas the observer on the sun starts time recording approximately at the time when the light pulse was emitted.
Let us consider their conclusion at the end of motion of the light pulse. Let us take that the light pulse has it own way to time its motion either by possession of invisible clock or any other natural means. Assigning a clock to the light pulse means that the light pulse also switched on its clock at its point of release by the sun observer and at the same 8:00am as the sun observer. At the end of the motion of light pulse at point C, the light pulse switches off its clock at the exact time, say 8:20am. To the observer on the sun for him to know that the light pulse has come to rest, he requires a light signal to travel from the final point, C, of motion of the light pulse to his point B (Sun’s Surface). This means that the sun observer exceeded in his time recording by the amount equal to time for light signal to travel from final position C of the emitted light pulse to the point B of the sun observer.
To the earth observer, when the light pulse stops motion he didn’t stop his clock but left it reading until a light signal travel from the final position C of light pulse to point A of earth observer. Therefore the earth observer exceeded in his time recording by the amount of time equal to time for light signal to travel from the final position C of light pulse to the point A of earth observer. The above thought experiment shows that all clocks in the universe have the same rate of ticking, since the difference in their measured time is caused by NWOBU’S EFFECT(delay in reception of time of occurrence of an event )and not because of relative motion or constancy of speed of light.
It can also be seen that the best frame that describes the motion of the light pulse is the frame of the light pulse. This is because it is only the light pulse that measures the absolute value of its motion properties while other observers measure values affected by “Nwobu’s Effects (optical effect).” The frame of the sun observer is better compared to the frame of the earth observer in measuring the time of motion of the light pulse in this particular thought experiment, because the value of time measured by the sun observer is less affected by Nwobu's Effect (optical effect). In conclusion, “Absolute motion is detectable”, that is, some frames ARE BETTER than others (not equivalent). This is contrary to Einstein’s first postulate of special relativity.
Einstein’s diagram of light pulse in a moving spaceship outside the earth shows that the path of the light pulse as seen by an earth observer is a diagonal while as seen by observer in the moving spaceship is a straight line.
What caused this difference in the path of light pulse as observed by earth observer and spaceship observer is simply Optical Illusion. The actual part of the light pulse is a straight line in both frames. Einstein believed that the path of the light pulse should not be the same because his first postulate of special relativity says that absolute motion is NOT detectable. This first postulate is what I showed above to be WRONG using a thought experiment and if that is the case, then we can easily believe that the difference in paths of light as observed by different frames is not real but just an optical illusion. The above thought experiment and it's prediction may seem nothing to a shallow minded reader but in it, is contained a great volume of knowledge that will in the course of time stand to correct many of the other theories we have around us.


1. The speed of any matter (e.g. Ball, Light, Spaceship etc) as measured by different inertial frames of references has the same value.
2. Some matters (Nwobian Matters) can travel at speed greater than speed of light.
3. Absolute motion is detectable, that is, some frames are better than others in measurements of physical quantities
4. All clocks in the universe have the same rate of ticking despite the state of motion.
5. The absolute (real) length of a body as measured by different inertial frames remains constant as the body travels away or towards those frames.
6. We cannot see a body traveling at speed equal or greater than the speed of light until it is receding from us except we get another matter with speed greater than lights speed that can stimulate the retina of our eyes.
7. A body traveling at speed of light has a ring of light produced around it.
8. Between two or more inertial reference frames, an event which is present tense to one frame may not be present tense to other frames but may be past or future tense to other frames but in all, they are all related to one another through the equations of Nwobu’s Effect.
9. Optical observation of our past time/world and its mathematical estimation is perfectly possible.
10. The future is not optically visible but is mathematically solvable.
11. Relative motion/velocity is not the cause of relativity (variation in the magnitude of a physical quantity as measured by different frames). When the distance between the point of emission of the first light signal at the star of motion and the point of emission of the last light signal at the end of motion, is equal to a number x, but not zero, relativity occurs , provided that the motion did not occur so as to cancel each other.
