stop hiding behind teh spacetimey orthodoxy;

Sylvia. ====================================== As has been proven already, if the twin travels a distance x in the frame of Earth then the distance xi that Earth must travel in the frame of the traveller is greater then x. The time for the traveller to move a distance x is t as measured by the Earth clock, hence v = x/t. The time for the Earth to move a distance xi is tau, and tau is less than t as all relativists agree, moving clocks run slow, the traveller does not age as rapidly as the twin on Earth. The velocity of Earth in the frame of the traveller is therefore upsilon = xi/tau and I leave it to the competent schoolchild to compute the value of upsilon when v = 0.866c, which if done correctly shows a clear paradox, upsilon c. Do not just point at v = upsilon and claim it is obvious.  This message is brought to you from the keyboard of Lord Androcles, Zeroth Earl of Medway. When I get my O.B.E. I'll be an earlobe.
