Irony, historically created by Socrates, combats in the individual the erroneousness of what he believes he knows and believes to be true, when in reality it is false.
If Socrates be alive today, he would destroy relativity and would leave relativists eating dust, in their impotence confronting critical thinking.

You, Dick, *clearly* think that you have all the answers!All right, you never fail showing here that you are a special kind of retarded.
You can't even quote the proper historic assertion, and choose instead a rephrased fallacy, asshole.
If you use logic to dissect the second phrase, it would show you how it contains contradictions, Einstein.
Learning from lifelong experiences is exactly equal than learning from everything and everyone, providing that any given person
has limited access to everything and everyone (a subset of what life really is). Everyone equals to infinity in this world, as well
as everything. So, your "smart people" grow with the same learning environment than your "average people".
Socrates never stated that, but you did, because you're a pretentious fucking asshole with a hubris for exaggerated judgmental
abilities, which you, in your lowlife years, enjoy displaying from your desktop position.
Maybe you're trying to compensate, late in life, how stupid you were in your productive years. Now, you really sucks.
There is not a thing like smart, average or stupid ID in life. Everyone has phases playing each role, which can happen almost on a
single day (not your case, as you're fatally locked on the "idiot phase").
What really define people is its character, its temperament. And they are borne with this quality, which can't be learned.
You're born an alpha, a beta or (in your case) an omega type of character.
And character is DIRECTLY RELATED to intelligence.
And with character and intelligence, there is no limit for what ANYBODY can do. No need to be a professional or even having
finished school.
And, in general, alpha types know all what they need to know to perform and succeed.
How did this worked for you, omega strain?

https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/768152/big-ben-paradoxI hadn't even considered it. Interesting ... The first problem I see is it involves general relativity, but we can
change the problem and assume Big Ben has an electrical charge is orbiting an opposite charge (this will
change the result somewhat). The second problem is that BB isn't inertial. IIRC, it was Robert Leighton who
solved that problem in the case of an electron orbiting a nucleus by taking small steps and iterating, not
something I'd want to do. The third problem is that the admonition of David Morin is violated:
""An extremely important strategy in solving relativity problems is to plant yourself in a frame and stay there. The only thoughts running through your head
should be what you observe. That is, don’t try to use reasoning along the lines
of, 'Well, the person I’m looking at in this other frame sees such-and-such.'
This will almost certainly cause an error somewhere along the way, because you
will inevitably end up writing down an equation that combines quantities that
are measured in different frames, which is a no-no." -- David Morin, Introduction
to Classical Mechanics, p. 522.
So, staying in the frame where the observer is stationary, BB is rushing toward the
observer at 0.867c AND traveling in a corkscrew path. Another complication. I'm
certainly not willing to go to all the effort to solve THAT problem unless it was
related to something I have a personal interest. My personal interests include
tachyons -- traveling in a straight line :-)

The electric field lines would be Lorentz contracted in the direction of travel, and so, condensed
in the plane of the orbiting electron. This would tend to increase the attractive force even further.
The same argument can be made for the earth-sun attraction, worsening the situation for the
earth's survival chances. There is no way to escape the Big Ben Paradox.

Your David Morin is a fool.
Calling smart physicists fools says more about you. Morin has something to say
to YOU:
"Attack me again with your sticks and your stones,
And, yes, you just may end up breaking my bones.
But name-calling earns you the hapless disgrace
Of failing to logically argue your case." -- David Morin
Besides, he's not the only one who advocates it:
"one should never mix together the descriptions of one phenomenon
yielded by different observers, otherwise--even in ordinary physics--
one would immediately meet contradictions" -- E. Recami
"Classical Tachyons and Possible Applications," Rivista Del Nuovo
Cimento, 9:6 (1986), p. 66.
Alarm bells should have sounded for this fool the moment he discovered the lack
of reciprocity in all relativistic computations.
"Reciprocity"? A sees B moving at velocity v. B sees A moving at velocity -v. Is that
"reciprocity"? Or A sees B 's length contracted, B sees A's length contracted. Is THAT
"reciprocity"? Or A sees B's time dilated, B sees A's time dilated. Is THAT "reciprocity"?
That has NOTHING to do with Morin's counsel.
I demonstrate this embarrassing fact of relativity in my analysis of proper and
coordinate relative velocities.
Your confidence is underwhelming.
“ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.”
– Charles Darwin
If you violated Morin's admonition, you most likely got a wrong answer. In the
absence of evidence your assertion is vacuous, most likely because "proper velocity" isn't a proper term in relativity.

Alarm bells should have sounded for this fool the moment he discovered the lack
of reciprocity in all relativistic computations.
"Reciprocity"? A sees B moving at velocity v. B sees A moving at velocity -v. Is that
"reciprocity"? Or A sees B 's length contracted, B sees A's length contracted. Is THAT
"reciprocity"? Or A sees B's time dilated, B sees A's time dilated. Is THAT "reciprocity"?
That has NOTHING to do with Morin's counsel.
I demonstrate this embarrassing fact of relativity in my analysis of proper and
coordinate relative velocities.
Your confidence is underwhelming.
“ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.”

If you violated Morin's admonition, you most likely got a wrong answer. In the
absence of evidence your assertion is vacuous, most likely because "proper velocity" isn't a proper term in relativity.

BTW, why don't you rail against this:
A has a cclock. Call it Big Ben. Ship B is traveling at 0.867c wrt A. B says BB is
running at half the speed of his clock. Ship C is traveling at 0.6c. C says BB is

that both time dilation and spacetime curvature can be true.
The BBP was the first to conclusively demonstrate that this is an impossibility.
Your hope and your claim is that if you shake your Ricci tensors and your inside
curvature and your outside curvature hard enough, a GR solution will drop out of
the many-parted, multifarious mathematical mess know as general relativity.
The BBP is here to tell you that this is a mathematical and logical impossibility.
You will never get a solution. Kip Thorne couldn't get a solution. Even Albert, Hilbert,
Ricci and Levi-Civita would be able to.
Lets first recall that the need for GR grew out of the realization that gravity had falsified
SR by 1907. This relegated SR to an odd mathematical transform that helped solve EM
problems by had no real value beyond that.

real concern is that since BB is running slow, that means that somehow the velocity of the
earth around the sun is out of kilter and earth won't stay in orbit.
This concern of yours happens because you jump frames, something that knowledgeable
physicists have told you not to do. Stay in the frame of the observer who sees the sun hurtling
toward him at 0.867c. There are two questions that must be answered:
(1) What does the distant observer measure as the speed of the earth around the sun?
(2) What does the distant observer measure as the acceleration at the earth due to the sun's
gravity and motion?

So the distant observer can calculate the potential at earth orbit as GM(1 + v/c)/r, where r is

Not quite. I took a shortcut from the actual equation. The v/c is actually (v dot R)/c|R| where
v and R are vectors (R begins at the distant observer and ends at the mass M). Since v is along
R, the result is v/c for the BBP scenario. So we must set up our situation:
Observer _________ v <--- M
0 ______________________ R
So v is negative and R is positive in this scenario. Therefore, V' < V.

DolocratesNow you're trying to weasel out by claiming it might not be in exact agreement
in the result. That would be impossible to determine because the SR value is and approximation and the Weber value is also an approximation, probably worse than the SR error. Remember? Good only to v/c, and you chose a really big v.
The fundamental fact is that you assumed the curvature (actually, the acceleration)

It is categorically not, so that blows your whole "paradox" out of the water. So please
get off the BBP soap box. I'm sure you can find some other "paradox" to rail about.

Respectfully,

Not quite. I took a shortcut from the actual equation. The v/c is actually (v dot R)/c|R| where
v and R are vectors (R begins at the distant observer and ends at the mass M). Since v is along
R, the result is v/c for the BBP scenario. So we must set up our situation:
Observer _________ v <--- M
0 ______________________ R
So v is negative and R is positive in this scenario. Therefore, V' < V.
But the question which is central to the solution of the BBP--and which this
forum is begging you to address, Gary Harnagel--is whether or not in the observer's frame the spacetime curvature in the vicinity of the Sun is opposing
the centrifugal force of the orbiting earth to a degree that is different when
compared to the solar system's frame? Can you address this most fundamental
question Gary Harnagel?
Dolocrates
Now you're trying to weasel out by claiming it might not be in exact agreement
in the result. That would be impossible to determine because the SR value is
and approximation and the Weber value is also an approximation, probably worse than the SR error. Remember? Good only to v/c, and you chose a really
big v.
The fundamental fact is that you assumed the curvature (actually, the acceleration)
due to the sun is the same for BB as well as for a distant observer in relative motion.
It is categorically not, so that blows your whole "paradox" out of the water. So please
get off the BBP soap box. I'm sure you can find some other "paradox" to rail about.
I value and treasure this response of yours, Gary Harnagel. We continue to make great
progress utilizing the Socratic method. Let me characterize were we now stand in the
argument:
You and Weber hold forth an opinion (similar to Legion's inside vs. outside curvature)
that the spacetime curvature actually, the acceleration [sic] is NOT THE SAME in the
distant observer's frame as it is in the solar system's frame. Do I characterize you fairly,
my boy? if yes, then can you please posit for this forum an equation specifying the
curvature's (actually, the acceleration) dependance on the relative velocity between the
distant observer to the solar system?

First of all, Pat, I am not "your boy" and second, I have already done that 2 days ago:
"Weber derived this equation from GR:
c² d²x/ds² = Del GM/R (1 + v/c)
retaining terms only up to v/c, where v = 0.867c for your scenario, and ignoring terms due to
acceleration of M (which is zero). Given that the Newtonian gravitational potential at the
distant observer is V = GM/R, the effective potential is V' = GM(1 + v/c)/R." And third, the only opinion I hold is that the acceleration due to the sun at the earth's orbit
according to GR is different from that according to Newton. I do not say what that difference
is because (1) Weber implies there are actually more terms than v/c, (2) I'm not able to verify
Weber's derivation for myself and (3) there's a problem with Weber's derivation.
As a would-be Socrates, I'm surprised that you haven't seen the problem. You were ready to
pounce on it when I first produced Weber's equation, but you were deflected when I explained
that v and R had opposite signs. The real Socrates would have asked the question, "But what if
an observer were moving AWAY from the sun? That wouldn't change the SR time dilation but
WOULD make V' > V and ... the earth would spiral into the sun. So application of Weber's
derivation to the BBP lacks a bit in it's ability to get the correct sense of V'. It's possible that
Weber did something like take a square root and assumed only one of the two possible roots.
So I'm giving you a C- as a Socrates avatar. But I still give your BBP an F because it assumes V' = V,
which it clearly is not. And since V' <> V, the paradox must be vacated.

Okay, let's try it with relativity.
Q. What is relativity?
A. There are two theories, special relativity and general relativity. I'll assume
you mean the simpler first one to answer your question. It is a physical theory
derived from two basic postulates, plus a couple of other assumptions, all of
which have been tested experimentally within the domain of applicability of the theory.
Q. Why it was needed?
A. Because nature wasn't behaving the way earlier theories predicted.
“Relativity and quantum mechanics were not invented because someone thought it would be a good idea for the universe to obey these rules;
rather, these revolutionary ideas were forced upon us by nature.”

DolocratesSo the subject is orbital motion observed in different frames.
Did you know that according to Newtonian mechanics,
orbital motion is a great paradox?
The Moon paradox:
-----------------
M = mass of Earth
m = mass of Moon
r = distance Earth - Moon
G = gravitational constant
In an inertial frame where the Earth is stationary: ---------------------------------------------------
According to Newtonian mechanics:
Only one force is acting on the Moon:
The centripetal force GMm/r².
This force is giving Earth the centripetal acceleration a = GM/r²,
which make the Moon move in orbit.
In the Moon frame:
------------------
I am standing on the Moon.
I see that the centre of the Earth is stationary
vertically over my head.
According to Newtonian mechanics:
The Earth is exerting the force GMm/r² on the Moon.
This force is towards the Earth.
The centrifugal force is exerting the force GMm/r² on the Moon.
This force is away from the Earth.
The result is that there is no net force and no acceleration
of the Moon, which I can see is true; the distance to Earth
is constant, so the Moon and I do not accelerate towards the Earth.
So I must conclude:
Since the Moon isn't accelerating, it will move in a straight line,
and can not orbit the Earth.
So there we are.
With your Big-Ben paradox, you have show that SR is inconsistent.
With my Moon paradox, I have shown that NM is inconsistent
Must be go back to Aristotelian mechanics? :-J

Applying these modifications to the centrifugal force equations gives
mv^2/r --> (gamma)m(v/gamma)^2/r = mv^2/(gamma)rT_observer = T_BB/gamma = T_BB/2
v_observer = 2pi r/sqrt(GM(1 - v/c)/r]
Does sqrt(GM(1 - v/c)/r] approximately equal sqrt(GM/r)/2?
It's possible that (1 - v/c) to first order in v/c is actually something
like 1/(1 + v/c) = 1 - v/c + v²/c² - ... = 1/(1 + 0.867) = 0.536, pretty

So we conclude that the transformation between frames must be
sun's attraction = -mv^2/(gamma)r
in order to solve the BBP. Is this a suitable result for you Gary Harnagel, my man?

Contribute in a meaningful way, Muttons. Do you accept Dolileo's equation for all frames? If not, why not?Why would anyone accept what you say when you make the senseless claim that an observer could, under certain circumstances, be able to cause the Earth to spiral into the Sun, simply by observing? Anyone with even 2 functioning neurons would

Interesting to see what has AI in the bottom of the questioning pit.
The above list is based on forensic dissection of any concept, like relativity.
Okay, let's try it with relativity.
Q. What is relativity?
A. There are two theories, special relativity and general relativity. I'll assume
you mean the simpler first one to answer your question. It is a physical theory
derived from two basic postulates, plus a couple of other assumptions, all of which have been tested experimentally within the domain of applicability of the theory.
Q. Why it was needed?
A. Because nature wasn't behaving the way earlier theories predicted.
"Relativity and quantum mechanics were not invented because someone
thought it would be a good idea for the universe to obey these rules;
rather, these revolutionary ideas were forced upon us by nature."

No, Galileo wouldn't say that.

But we can calculate the centrifugal force on the earth in both frames. AndAnd Weber's equation demonstrates that it does vary.
that will tell us how the sun's attraction must vary, if at all, between frames.
We start with the equation for the earth's centrifugal force = mv^2/rPaul Alsing wrote:
"Well, actually that is the equation for centripetal force, which is observed from
an inertial frame of reference, whereas the fictitious pseudo centrifugal force is
observed from a non-inertial frame of reference."
From a heliocentric frame, mv^2/r = GMm/r^2. v = sqrt(GM/r), T = 2pi r/sqrt(GM/r)
T = 2pi sqrt(r/GM)
We can use the Lorentz transforms to adjust the values in this equation between
frames. We have the assurance of no less than Professor Paul Anderson that doing
so will result in at most an error of trivial value https://paulba.no/pdf/Dolan.pdf/ I
past below the last line of his painstaking analysis of the BBP:
"This is very close to the same value as SR gave, the difference is 3 · 10−8 year or ca
1 second. So SR is a good approximation in this case." With this lofty assurance we
proceed.
The earth's orbital velocity will decrease to the same degree as Big Ben's little hand,Mass is invariant in relativity, so that claim is incorrect. The acceleration observed
which is 1/gamma. However the earth's mass will increase by gamma.
from S' due to the sun will decrease by approximately (1 - u/c), where u is the relative
velocity between the sun and the distant observer.
Applying these modifications to the centrifugal force equations gives
mv^2/r --> (gamma)m(v/gamma)^2/r = mv^2/(gamma)rT_observer = T_BB/gamma = T_BB/2
v_observer = 2pi r/sqrt(GM(1 - v/c)/r]
Does sqrt(GM(1 - v/c)/r] approximately equal sqrt(GM/r)/2?
It's possible that (1 - v/c) to first order in v/c is actually something
like 1/(1 + v/c) = 1 - v/c + v²/c² - ... = 1/(1 + 0.867) = 0.536, pretty
close, n'est-ce pas?
So we conclude that the transformation between frames must be
sun's attraction = -mv^2/(gamma)r
in order to solve the BBP. Is this a suitable result for you Gary Harnagel, my man?
Respectfully,
DolileoAll that's needed to refute the BBP is to show that the acceleration at r from the
observer's perspective is not GM/r, which Weber's equation does.

The BBP is a different scenario, so there's little to compare. Did the observer start at earth and go

"An extremely important strategy in solving relativity problems is to plant

are measured in different frames, which is a no-no. -- David Morin, "Introduction

Sure Paul. Such a person has superior mental health, to the extent that said person has chosen to go beyond what he was taught and what he has read; choosing instead to keep his mental independence and apply simple logic to the theory of SR.

Spacetime curvature is expressed by the Riemann curvature tensor, which
like all tensors is completely independent of coordinates -- that makes
them invariant under changes of coordinates. In this context,
"covariant" means that the components of a tensor "co-vary" with changes
of coordinates such that the underlying tensor is invariant.
So in your loosey-goosey wording, spacetime curvature is INHERENTLY covariant; this is blatantly obvious to anyone who understands tensors,
and is not worthy of any prize.
This also means that your "Big Ben Paradox" is merely a misunderstanding

with the speed 0.9c. The observer will measure one orbit
of the earth to last a time tau on his wristwatch:

I don't believe you are on the record yet Gary, regarding the BBP. What would Socratease make of that do you think?

change the problem and assume Big Ben has an electrical charge is orbiting an opposite charge (this will
change the result somewhat). The second problem is that BB isn't inertial. IIRC, it was Robert Leighton who
solved that problem in the case of an electron orbiting a nucleus by taking small steps and iterating, not
something I'd want to do. The third problem is that the admonition of David Morin is violated:
""An extremely important strategy in solving relativity problems is to plant
yourself in a frame and stay there. The only thoughts running through your head
should be what you observe. That is, don’t try to use reasoning along the lines
of, 'Well, the person I’m looking at in this other frame sees such-and-such.'
This will almost certainly cause an error somewhere along the way, because you
will inevitably end up writing down an equation that combines quantities that
are measured in different frames, which is a no-no." -- David Morin, Introduction
to Classical Mechanics, p. 522.
So, staying in the frame where the observer is stationary, BB is rushing toward theProfessor Paul B. Anderson has already determined that the spacetime in which the paradox takes place is flat for all concerned, observer and earthlings. See his in-depth analysis here https://paulba.no/pdf/Dolan.pdf

distant observer do not affect the sun, earth, or solar system in any
way. This OUGHT to be obvious.
If a satellite orbits the sun in a circular orbit, and the system
travels along the x axis relative to a stationary observer, the orbit
will appear to distort into an ellipse. The observer may infer that
the motion has affected the sun's gravity.

That is untrue. Again, describing the phenomena in terms of a different coordinate system does not change the phenomena.
You're still failing to distinguish between passive and active transformations, and of course you are still failing to distinguish between the extrinsic curvature of a trajectory and the intrinsic curvature of a manifold, and so on.

Alternatively, in the context of general relativity, i.e., "when the curvature of space-time is considered", rather than discussing the "force of gravity", we note that the earth's trajectory is a helical geodesic path through spacetime, whose metricnear the sun satisfies the field equations, and it is easily shown that (1) the extrinsic curvature of the trajectory is invariant, (2) the components of the intrinsic (Gaussian) curvature are properly covariant between the two systems of coordinates, (3)

(2) It's not "complete" because it's only precise to u/c: there are additional terms required to

Gary Harnagel, why do you sell yourself short?
It will take you another ten years? To do what?
Do you think that Robert or Legion could even calculate the normal force of a brick on a table top
using the GR? The entire mathematical armamentarium of GR consists of a few closed-form
approximations and the symbolic representation of the EFEs that fools like Volroney and Muttons
wear on their T-shirts.
Nobody has ever actually used the damn things. Don't believe me?
The go ahead, challenge Legion to do a problem--nothing difficult--how about calculating the
trajectory of a ball thrown up in the air.
Where were Legion and Roberts when I laid down the foundations of the Lorentz contraction
velocity? Tell me, if you know and have understanding. Who discovered the Lorentz superluminal
displacements?
Who stretched out the distant observer along axis of the sun that caused the earth to burn? Tell me
if you can.
Who proved 1 = -1 and ended the integers? Surely you know.
Who pushed Kepler into the breach then told Einstein "thus far and no farther"
Do yourself a favor and become my disciple and not there's.

Gary Harnagel, why do you sell yourself short?I don't. Unlike you, I tell the truth.

additional terms v^n/c^n.

any validity. There is some reason to believe that charged superluminal would be unstable because
of Cerenkov radiation. If that; correct, then only uncharged particles can exceed c and be stable.
Observers have to be built up from elementary particles, which uncharged particles aren't likely to be
able to do.

Fine. I give the talking stick to Legion. He may proceed with your request, unmolested. I'm truly interested.Nobody has ever actually used the damn things. Don't believe me?Not only don't I believe you, I know of people who have done just that. I'm sure Fernando Loup

Well Gary Harnagel? Where have your relativity heroes gone? It's been 48 hours and
not a sign of either Roberts or Legion.
