Default Utter Confusion in the Einstein Cult

Two quotations taken from Quantum Time Twist Offers a Way to Create Schrödinger’s Clock https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...ingers-clock/:

"The faster you travel, the slower time appears to pass."

This is both nonsense (appears to whom?) and non sequitur (doesn't follow from Einstein's 1905 postulates). Here is what validly follows from the postulates:

The faster you travel, the slower your time appears to pass to stationary people, and the FASTER your time appears to pass to yourself, as you check stationary clocks your spaceship pass against your spaceship's clocks.

"“We know from Einstein’s special theory of relativity that when a clock moves relative to another clock, the time shown on it slows down,” Smith says."

Smith doesn't know what he is talking about. It follows from Einstein's 1905 postulates that the time shown on the moving clock slows down only as judged from the stationary clock's system. As judged from the moving clock's system, however, the time shown on the moving clock SPEEDS UP (compared with the time shown on the stationary clock).

Default Utter Confusion in the Einstein Cult

Brian Greene: The moving clock is slow, the stationary one is fast:


This is OBVIOUSLY non sequitur (Einstein's 1905 postulates do not entail such an asymmetry) and yet Einstein himself used to teach it, and high priests in the Einstein cult repeat it regularly. No this is neither confusion nor stupidity - the right term is "criminal dishonesty".

It follows logically from Einstein's 1905 postulates that, if two clocks are in relative motion, either clock is slower than the other as judged from the other clock's system, or either clock is faster than the other as judged from the clock's own system (SYMMETRIC time dilation). Then why do high priests (Einstein included) abuse logic and teach the non sequitur? Because symmetric time dilation (the valid deduction) doesn't, but asymmetric time dilation (the non sequitur) does imply TIME TRAVEL INTO THE FUTURE - the miracle (idiocy) that converted Einstein into a deity:

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
