    Joao Magueijo, Niayesh Afshordi, Stephon Alexander: "So we have broken fundamentally this Lorentz invariance which equates space and time [...] It's the other postulate of relativity, that of constancy of c, that has to give way..." https://youtu.be/

    Sabine Hossenfelder: "Controversial opinion: Lorentz invariance is one of the biggest mysteries of the universe." https://twitter.com/skdh/status/1424962151840632861

    The physics establishment has known the truth about Einstein since 2001:

    "Lee [Smolin] and I discussed these paradoxes at great length for many months, starting in January 2001. We would meet in caf├ęs in South Kensington or Holland Park to mull over the problem. THE ROOT OF ALL THE EVIL WAS CLEARLY SPECIAL RELATIVITY. All
    these paradoxes resulted from well known effects such as length contraction, time dilation, or E=mc^2, all basic predictions of special relativity. And all denied the possibility of establishing a well-defined border, common to all observers, capable of
    containing new quantum gravitational effects." Joao Magueijo, Faster Than the Speed of Light, p. 250 http://www.amazon.com/Faster-Than-Speed-Light-Speculation/dp/0738205257

    If the speed of light is assumed constant (Einstein's physics), the formula

    (frequency) = (speed of light)/(wavelength)

    has absurd corollaries, e.g. "Any frequency shift entails (is caused by) an inversely proportional wavelength shift". In contrast, the formula has revolutionary corollaries if THE WAVELENGTH OF LIGHT IS ASSUMED CONSTANT (future, Einstein-free physics):

    Corollary 1: Any frequency shift entails (is caused by) a proportional speed-of-light shift.

    Corollary 2: If the emitter and the observer (receiver) travel towards each other with relative speed v, the speed of light as measured by the observer is c' = c+v, as per Newton's theory.

    Corollary 3: Spacetime and gravitational waves (ripples in spacetime) don't exist. LIGO's "discoveries" are fake.

    Corollary 4: Light falls in a gravitational field with the same acceleration as ordinary falling bodies - near Earth's surface the accelerations of falling photons is g = 9.8 m/s^2. Accordingly, there is no gravitational time dilation: Einstein's general
    relativity is absurd.

    Corollary 5: The Hubble redshift is due to light slowing down as it travels through vacuum. The universe is not expanding.

    Physicists do know that Einstein's 1905 constant-speed-of-light postulate is false but, as this text clearly shows, establishing the truth would be suicidal for them:

    "The whole of physics is predicated on the constancy of the speed of light," Joao Magueijo, a cosmologist at Imperial College London and pioneer of the theory of variable light speed, told Motherboard. "So we had to find ways to change the speed of light
    without wrecking the whole thing too much." https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/8q87gk/light-speed-slowed
