Explain this:
1905 EINSTEIN'S MODIFIED LORENTZ TRANSFORMS
t' = γ (t - vx/c²)
x' = γ (x - vt)
IF
v = 11 Km/sec
x = 400 Km
γ = 1.00000000067222
t' ≈ t - 48.89 nsec
48.89 nanoseconds meaning WHAT?
Worse yet.
IF x' = 0, then x = vt
t' = γ (t - vx/c²) = γ (t - v²/c² t) = t/γ
t' = γ (t - vx/c²) = γ (t - v²/c² t) = t/γ
t' = 0.999999998655556 t (now t' run slower than t!)
Any explanations about these numerical examples of
the ridiculous results when applying SR?
What is missing today is mainly semantics.
The core theory of relativity is about times, positions, durations
and legths. The semantics of those are well understood by almost
everybody.
What evdence there is to show that the semantics of times. positions, durations and lengths is not well understood by almost everybody?

Go to equations 8 and 10.
Lorentz "borrowed" Voigt's local time, without crediting him.
Lirentz' local time is not the same as Voigt's.
Local time is the isometric coordinate time of an isometric
coordinate system. An important aspect to understand about
it is that it is not local. It is valid for the region where
the coordinate system is valid. At the time Voigt, Larmor and
Lorentz presented their transformations it was assumed that
the entire Universe could be covered with one such system.
What is more interesting than Hendrik Lorentz, that is Einstein's 'On
the electrodynamics of moving bodies'.
No "local time" there so irrelevant to the topic of this discussion.
Special Relativity is fairly simple and easy to understand.
But it is not self-evident. It is not understood by those who have not learned it. Some people simpy find it too uninteresting.

Que pensait Henri Poincaré lorsqu'il écrivait « heure locale » ?
Que pensait Albert Eisntein ?
Que pensais Minkowski, Lorentz?
On ne le sait pas...
