Default AMAZEMENT IN EINSTEIN'S SCHIZOPHRENIC WORLD

Amazement at UCSB:

http://edge.org/responses/what-scien...for-retirement
WHAT SCIENTIFIC IDEA IS READY FOR RETIREMENT? Steve Giddings: "Spacetime. Physics has always been regarded as playing out on an underlying stage of space and time. Special relativity joined these into spacetime... (...) The apparent need to retire classical spacetime as a fundamental concept is profound..."

Amazement at the Perimeter Institute:

http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/vid...e-21st-century
November 6, 2014 Perimeter Institute: "Prepare to be amazed. Nima Arkani-Hamed is one of the world's most innovative scientists..."

The amazement (6:10): "Almost all of us believe that space-time doesn't really exist, space-time is doomed and has to be replaced by some more primitive building blocks."

Amazement at Caltech:

http://www.caltech.edu/content/nima-...e-21st-century
December 9, 2014 Caltech: "Prepare to be amazed. Nima Arkani-Hamed is one of the world's most innovative scientists..."

Needless to say, at Caltech Einsteinians will be amazed in exactly the same way as at the Perimeter Institute.

Space-time is a deductive consequence of Einstein's 1905 constant-speed-of-light postulate. This means that, in accordance with the rules of logic, since the consequence (space-time) is wrong and has to be "retired", the postulate should be declared false. Yet of all the Einsteinians all over the world not one could think of a reason why the rules of logic should be applied in this particular case.
