# The Prison Built by Einstein

"The Prison Built By Einstein" Scientists are TRAPPED!

Scientists were trapped in 1905 when they started to digest a preposterous nonsense: the speed of light relative to the observer is independent of the speed of the observer. Einstein wrestled with his conscience "over a lengthy period of time, to the point of despair" before positing the nonsense:

"But this seems to be nonsense. How can it happen that the speed of light relative to an observer cannot be increased or decreased if that observer moves towards or away from a light beam? Einstein states that he wrestled with this problem over a lengthy period of time, to the point of despair." https://history.aip.org/exhibits/einstein/essay-einstein-relativity.htm

The speed of light relative to the observer obviously VARIES with the speed of the observer. Assume that a light source emits equidistant pulses and an observer starts moving towards the source:

The speed of the light pulses relative to the stationary observer is

c = df

where d is the distance between subsequent pulses and f is the frequency at the stationary observer. The speed of the pulses relative to the moving observer is

c'= df' > c

where f' > f is the frequency at the moving observer.

You are so wrong. Prior to Einstein, every physicist worth his salt KNEW that the speed of light was independent of the motion of any observer. Einstein, merely provided an alternative explanation (and a much less logically substantive one) for why this was so.

"The prison built by Einstein" is a euphemism. The blunt truth is that Einstein killed physics. The texts below imply that, if the speed of light is VARIABLE (it is!), modern physics, predicated on Einstein's 1905 constant-speed-of-light falsehood, is long dead (exists in a zombie state):

"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

"If there's one thing every schoolboy knows about Einstein and his theory of relativity, it is that the speed of light in vacuum is constant. No matter what the circumstances, light in vacuum travels at the same speed...The speed of light is the very keystone of physics, the seemingly sure foundation upon which every modern cosmological theory is built, the yardstick by which everything in the universe is measured...The constancy of the speed of light has been woven into the very fabric of physics, into the way physics equations are written, even into the notation used. Nowadays, to "vary" the speed of light is not even a swear word: It is simply not present in the vocabulary of physics." https://www.amazon.com/Faster-Than-Speed-Light-Speculation/dp/0738205257

"The whole of physics is predicated on the constancy of the speed of light...So we had to find ways to change the speed of light without wrecking the whole thing too much." https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/8q87gk/light-speed-slowed

To state that it is Einstein's potsulate that the speed of light is constant, is the key factor that has undermined the whole of phyisics is completely false. It is not the contancy of the speed of light that is the problem, surely that is an established fact? Today, with new technology and incredibly accurate clocks it is possible to make very accurate time measurements. Invariably, and with every measurement that is made, it is found that the speed of light, in a vacuum, is constant. Where Einstein threw a huge spanner into the works is his claim as to why the speed of light is constant. Einstein's claim that both time and space undergo change in order that all observers see the speed of light as constant, is so patently absurd that it is impossible to conclude how such an obviously false theory was ever accepted by physicists: until that is one thinks of the the atomic bomb and nuclear power. Till the time of the first atomic bomb, Einstein, and his theories, were a mere footnote to the world oif physics. Post the atomic bomb, and endorsed by Governments world wide, his every word became, and still remains today, inviolate.
