Einstein Fraudulently Introduced ASYMMETRIC Time Dilation in 1905
Einstein committed two sins in 1905:
1. Introduced the malignant constant-speed-of-light postulate that he had "borrowed" from the nonexistent ether. The metastases of the malignancy killed physics (made it immeasurably more insane that flat-earth myths).
2. Fraudulently introduced a non sequitur, ASYMMETRIC time dilation (the moving clock is slow, the stationary one is fast):
Albert Einstein, On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies, 1905: "From this there ensues the following peculiar consequence. If at the points A and B of K there are stationary clocks which, viewed in the stationary system, are synchronous; and if the clock at A is moved with the velocity v along the line AB to B, then on its arrival at B the two clocks no longer synchronize, but the clock moved from A to B lags behind the other which has remained at B by tv^2/2c^2 (up to magnitudes of fourth and higher order), t being the time occupied in the journey from A to B." http://www.fourmilab.ch/etexts/einstein/specrel/www/
Einstein's 1905 postulates entail SYMMETRIC time dilation - either clock is slow as judged from the other clock's system (or either clock is fast as judged from its own system):
David Morin, Introduction to Classical Mechanics With Problems and Solutions, Chapter 11, p. 14: "Twin A stays on the earth, while twin B flies quickly to a distant star and back. [...] For the entire outward and return parts of the trip, B does observe A's clock running SLOW..." http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~djmorin/chap11.pdf
"The situation is that a man sets off in a rocket travelling at high speed away from Earth, whilst his twin brother stays on Earth. [...] ...the twin in the spaceship considers himself to be the stationary twin, and therefore as he looks back towards Earth he sees his brother ageing MORE SLOWLY than himself." http://topquark.hubpages.com/hub/Twin-Paradox
The idiotic "time travel into the future" is an implication of the non sequitur, Einstein's 1905 ASYMMETRIC time dilation:
Thibault Damour: "The paradigm of the special relativistic upheaval of the usual concept of time is the twin paradox. Let us emphasize that this striking example of time dilation proves that time travel (towards the future) is possible. As a gedanken experiment (if we neglect practicalities such as the technology needed for reaching velocities comparable to the velocity of light, the cost of the fuel and the capacity of the traveller to sustain high accelerations), it shows that a sentient being can jump, "within a minute" (of his experienced time) arbitrarily far in the future, say sixty million years ahead, and see, and be part of, what (will) happen then on Earth. This is a clear way of realizing that the future "already exists" (as we can experience it "in a minute")." http://www.bourbaphy.fr/damourtemps.pdf
Below, Joao Magueijo effectively says that, if the speed of light is variable (it is!), fundamental physics, entirely predicated on Einstein's false constancy, is long dead. Things will have to restart from scratch. See a possible restart in a series of tweets he https://twitter.com/pentcho_valev
"The speaker Joao Magueijo, is a Reader in Theoretical Physics at Imperial College, London and author of Faster Than the Speed of Light. He opened by explaining how Einstein's theory of relativity is the foundation of every other theory in modern physics and that the assumption that the speed of light is constant is the foundation of that theory. Thus a constant speed of light is embedded in all of modern physics and to propose a varying speed of light (VSL) is worse than swearing! It is like proposing a language without vowels." http://www.thegreatdebate.org.uk/VSLRevPrnt.html
