The observational evidence does not lie. The time for an electromagnetic (EM) wave to arrive at some other object is:

T=Dk (Time = Distance * [some *normally* constant factor] )

T=Dk has been experimentally shown to apply universally independent to any observer. It’s simply a reformulation of Maxwell’s equations, solving for the time it takes for EM induction to complete. Some describe this as “the speed of light is constant.” However, that interpretation is critically wrong.

In 1887, the Michelson-Morley Experiment provided strong evidence that the rate of EM induction remained constant, regardless of the Earth’s motion through the galaxy. Today it is accepted as a fact that the rate is constant.

T=Dk, derived from the above fact, means the duration it takes for a “photon” leaving object A to hit object B is purely based on their distance, regardless of their relative velocity to anything else in the universe. It applies independently to any observer. It’s a *universal principle* if you will.

What is our ultimate question?

If Bob thinks objects A and B are rapidly approaching, he views the photon as crossing a further distance. If Bob thinks he’s quickly approaching them, he considers the photon traveling a shorter length.

A photon will travel from object A to object B in 1 second when the objects are stationary, but when they are going 90% “the speed of light” in the direction of B, it still only takes 1 second because A and B are still at the same distance from each other. The photon has to cross a much further “distance” in the second scenario.

Our ultimate question is: How can a photon cross a distance in one second and then %190 of that distance, also in 1 second, without changing “speed,” or dilating time?

I have proven that time cannot dilate (here, and follow up here.) Unfortunately, Einstein didn’t understand the discipline of analytics very well. Nor do those who now reframe observations of the constant speed of light as “confirmations of Einstein’s theory.”

Einstein’s time dilation isn’t a theory but an invalid interpretation of the evidence. Mathematically, “dilating” the time dimension makes the equations come out, but dilating time has no physical meaning. There are analytical rules about what the data can mean as information. People should learn those rules.

The answer to the ultimate question is simple. There is no photon.

No object at speed can be expressed universally as T=Dk. T=Dk is the equation of a rate, not a velocity. It directly implies that light is a **process **with no actual **thing **traveling between. Light is point-to-point as if you were touching, but something about *distance *causes the process to take longer? No. Something causes the process to take longer, creating “distance.”

It literally means light IS spooky action at a distance. Non-locality is the present reality. In light of my proof about time, every observation of the constant speed of light implies a non-locality nature.

When light “travels” 190% further in the same amount of time, it “manifests the non-locality,” as if distance contracted. That 90% extra “distance” is meaningless to a non-local process. From the perspective of outside observers, the non-locale reality manifests itself as the appearance of “time dilation.”

Let’s review a previous point:

If Bob thinks objects A and B are rapidly approaching, he views the photon as crossing a further distance. If Bob thinks he’s quickly approaching them, he considers the photon traveling a shorter length.

Bob thinking that the objects are approaching him or that he’s approaching them is redundant. Yet not acknowledging the non-local reality makes it seem like all kinds of illogical contradictions are happening. Contradictions never occur; exclusively, it’s people that create them.

The Copenhagen interpretation was adopted before significant advances in information theory and analytics. Physicists should be encouraged to allow critical input from those who have sought deep understanding in both areas. The interpretation is not valid. The math “works,” but it is unnecessarily complicated trying to clear riddles that don’t exist.

Distance is not a tangible thing. It cannot contract. However, you can manifest the non-locality, realize the truth about distance, and manipulate that. Non-locality is what is most apparent to me, and the perception of distance is somewhat illusionary. I believe they can be conquered.

Stay present.
