Originally, local time was FOUND by Voigt in 1887. Here is the link:

Go to equations 8 and 10.
Lorentz "borrowed" Voigt's local time, without crediting him.
All the mathematical tools of special relativity are in the baggage
of an average 16-year-old student.
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.
You are lying.
You are lying in good faith, and that is why you are respectable.
But you are lying.
Of course your sentence "The core theory of relativity is about times, positions, durations
and legths " is correct, but the following " The semantics of those are
well understood by almost
everybody." is no longer correct.

A great quantum physicist was once asked the question: "Is it true that
there are only three physicists in the world who understand quantum
physics?"
He replied: "And who is the third?"
The same goes for special relativity.
But worse.
If I were asked if it is true that only three people in the world
understand SR, I would be obliged to ask and who are the other two?
There are necessarily things that physicists or fans do not understand,
I see it very well when I post messages, and everyone is flying at
fifteen miles.
SR is rotten with errors and misunderstandings,
and many repeat things without understanding them, or even
understanding them backwards.
If I ask a question like:
"What makes the notion of simultaneity relative? Is it the position? Is
it the speed?"
100% of the 569,874 people questioned will throw themselves on the
ground holding their sides, because the question will make them laugh
so much.
They will all answer: speed!
That's wrong. It's the position.
Romeo on this bench, Juliet on that other one do NOT have the same
hyperplane of simultaneity.
On the other hand, a rocket crossing the earth at relativistic speed (Vo=0.95c for example) apprehends exactly the same universe of
simultaneity.
By saying things backwards, physicists show that they have understood
nothing at all.
And by throwing themselves on the ground holding their sides with
laughter, they show that not only are they stupid, but they are
arrogant.
Their problem is that they do not know how to interpret Lorentz transformations, and do not understand the geometry of space-time
(Minkowski was wrong, his "block" does not exist.
A very simple proof that it does not fit.
What is the apparent speed of a rocket moving towards me at speed Vo =
0.8c? As in the Langevin traveler.
Answer: Vapp = 4c
What is the proper duration of Stella's return trip in the Langevin?
9 years.
This means that during nine years of her proper time, Stella will see
the earth come back to her, with an apparent speed of 4c.
In elementary school, we learn that then, the apparent path is x = Vapp.Tr
Except that this is a distance of 36 ly which drives you crazy, and
requires the psychiatric hospitalization of the 569874 people
interviewed.
With their contraction distances that are totally misunderstood (if
that were all) physicists all over the world, arrogant as they are,
placed on the tray of a scale and me alone on the other, do not carry
the weight.
But they will never admit it.
Examples that SR is true, but totally misunderstood because of people
like Einstein or Minkowski abound.
But I have been repeating it tirelessly for 40 years, the problem is
human, almost psychiatric or religious: we do not want to see.

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'.

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.
Absolutely not.
I studied it for forty years, and if at first it is a bit hard, we say
to ourselves that, perhaps, it is not a lack of intelligence on the
part of the reader.
But, no. It is an intellectual fraud.
Not everything, obviously, Dr. Hachel is NOT anti-relativist, quite the contrary.
