One of the great mysteries of Special Relativity is the Second Postulate, which is the idea that the speed of light c is a constant, independent of the relative motion of the source. This constancy is why Albert Einstein preferred to think of his …

## The Greatest and Grandest Illusion (Part I)- A Relativistic Deception

Albert Einstein H.A. Lorentz In my book The Enlightening, I make the following observation: Both Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz conceived of Lorentz’ Relativistic Velocity Transformation equations as describing the entire extent of the universe. This is clearly supported by Einstein’s relativity theories, including …

A Caltech researcher has recently pointed out that Schrodinger’s Equation, which describes the wavelike nature of particles, and is therefore the foundational equation of quantum mechanics, is also very useful in describing the long-term evolution of large-scale astronomical structure of space-time. Today, let’s conduct …

Science has more than its share of enormous mysteries. Any halfway comprehensive list would be far too long to compile here. Yet perhaps none of these mysteries is stranger, and of a more fundamental nature, than that of the mystery of wave-particle duality. According …
