Akram Louiz, 2022: "Furthermore, in the Doppler effect, the real constant is the wavelength since the source of the light doesn't change the manner of light production, whereas the real variables are the frequency and the speed of light...Indeed, the frequency changes, but it is the light speed C that changes proportionally, and not the wavelength. At the end, the equation : C = (frequency × wavelength) stays always correct." https://www.researchgate.net/public...ect_and_the_Gravitational_effect_of_the_light

Bryan G. Wallace, Radar Testing of the Relative Velocity of Light in Space, Spectroscopy Letters, 1969, pp. 361-367. ABSTRACT: "Published interplanetary radar data presents evidence that the relative velocity of light in space is c+v and not c." INTRODUCTION: "There are three main theories about the relativity velocity of light in space. The Newtonian corpuscular theory is relativistic in the Galilean sense and postulates that the velocity is c+v relative to the observer. The ether theory postulates that the velocity is c relative to the ether. The Einstein theory postulates that the velocity is c relative to the observer. The Michelson-Morley experiment presents evidence against the ether theory and for the c+v theory. The c theory explains the results of this experiment by postulating ad hoc properties of space and time..." http://sciliterature.50webs.com/SpecLetters1969-p361-367.pdf

Sometimes it appears that the truth resurfaces in the establishment as well, but this is just hype (post-truth scientists cannot make money and career without hype):

"Was Einstein wrong? The idea of a variable speed of light, championed by an angry young scientist, could one day topple Einstein's theory of relativity...The speed of light might not be constant at all. Shock, horror! Does this mean the next Great Revolution in Science is just around the corner?" http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/magazine/waseinsteinwrong/

"Was Einstein wrong? Do we have to kill off the theory of space and time to make sense of the universe?" https://space.com/end-of-einstein-space-time

"Lee [Smolin] and I discussed these paradoxes at great length for many months, starting in January 2001. We would meet in cafés in South Kensington or Holland Park to mull over the problem. THE ROOT OF ALL THE EVIL WAS CLEARLY SPECIAL RELATIVITY. All these paradoxes resulted from well known effects such as length contraction, time dilation, or E=mc^2, all basic predictions of special relativity." Joao Magueijo, Faster Than the Speed of Light, p. 250 http://www.amazon.com/Faster-Than-Speed-Light-Speculation/dp/0738205257

"You want to go back to a notion of space-time that preceded the 20th century, and it wants to ignore the essential lessons about space-time that the 20th century has taught us." Joao Magueijo: "Yes, that's right. So it's nouveau-Newtonian." https://pirsa.org/16060116?t=3211

"...Dr. Magueijo said. "We need to drop a postulate, perhaps the constancy of the speed of light." http://www.nytimes.com/2002/12/31/science/e-and-mc2-equality-it-seems-is-relative.html

Joao Magueijo, Niayesh Afshordi, Stephon Alexander: "So we have broken fundamentally this Lorentz invariance which equates space and time...It is the other postulate of relativity, that of constancy of c, that has to give way."

"Einstein introduced a new notion of time, more radical than even he at first realized. In fact, the view of time that Einstein adopted was first articulated by his onetime math teacher in a famous lecture delivered one century ago. That lecture, by the German mathematician Hermann Minkowski, established a new arena for the presentation of physics, a new vision of the nature of reality redefining the mathematics of existence. The lecture was titled Space and Time, and it introduced to the world the marriage of the two, now known as spacetime. It was a good marriage, but lately physicists passion for spacetime has begun to diminish. And some are starting to whisper about possible grounds for divorce." https://www.sciencenews.org/article/its-likely-times-are-changing

"Was Einstein wrong? At least in his understanding of time, [Lee] Smolin argues, the great theorist of relativity was dead wrong. What is worse, by firmly enshrining his error in scientific orthodoxy, Einstein trapped his successors in insoluble dilemmas." https://www.amazon.com/Time-Reborn-Crisis-Physics-Universe-ebook/dp/B009JWCQMK

Nima Arkani-Hamed: "Almost all of us believe that spacetime doesn't really exist, spacetime is doomed and has to be replaced..."

Philip Ball: "And by making the clock's tick relative - what happens simultaneously for one observer might seem sequential to another - Einstein's theory of special relativity not only destroyed any notion of absolute time but made time equivalent to a dimension in space: the future is already out there waiting for us; we just can't see it until we get there. This view is a logical and metaphysical dead end, says [Lee] Smolin." http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2013/jun/10/time-reborn-farewell-reality-review

"Bye bye space-time: is it time to free physics from Einstein's legacy?" https://www.newscientist.com/articl...t-time-to-free-physics-from-einsteins-legacy/

"Rethinking Einstein: The end of space-time...Horava, who is at the University of California, Berkeley, wants to rip this fabric apart and set time and space free from one another..." https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20727721-200-rethinking-einstein-the-end-of-space-time/

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..." https://www.edge.org/response-detail/25477

"...says John Norton, a philosopher based at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Norton is hesitant to express it, but his instinct - and the consensus in physics - seems to be that space and time exist on their own. The trouble with this idea, though, is that it doesn't sit well with relativity, which describes space-time as a malleable fabric whose geometry can be changed by the gravity of stars, planets and matter." https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20026831.500-what-makes-the-universe-tick

Nobel Laureate David Gross observed, "Everyone in string theory is convinced...that spacetime is doomed. But we don't know what it's replaced by." https://www.edge.org/response-detail/26563

Here is the crucial confession that explains everything:

"The whole of physics is predicated on the constancy of the speed of light," Joao Magueijo, a cosmologist at Imperial College London and pioneer of the theory of variable light speed, told Motherboard. "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
 
The constancy of the horizon of the speed of light (accelerative (+) up to the universe's (photo) 'stop sign', and decelerative (-) down to the same) is tied to the constancy of the Big Bang (up and out) / Planck (down and in) / Infinity (collapsed) Horizon . . . the Horizon, too, of the largest Singularity, the largest Black Hole, of them all: the vertical universe. That collapsed Horizon of [.... / .... / Infinity] has and is rim gravity ingredient, the counter gravitational force to all the infinities of constituent [centers] of gravity (the tree is in the forest / the forest is in the tree). It all ties together.

The constancy of the horizon of the speed of light may seem no constant at all for the simple reason that space and time are taken to be hard vacuum absolutes, constants, and time taken to be 1-dimensional only, the fourth dimension of space . . . none of which is true (space is not hard vacuum absolute and time is not 1-dimensional only).

Space is in fact malleably balloon bubble -like, inflationary and deflationary balloon bubble-like at power (at acceleration / deceleration) at will, expanding, or shrinking, times, but a play always being played upon an independent playing field constant in Big Bang (up and out) / Planck (down and in) / Infinity (collapsed) Horizon. The constancy of the horizon of the speed of light keeps its [.... / Planck / ....] attached constancy with that independent playing field regardless of the balloon-bubble warp of space and time [within / on] the independent playing field.

Unless one knows the frequency of light emitted at source, there is no way to know how much it has been redshifted by the time it reaches the observer. It is wrong to assume redshift has anything to do with velocity of motion. If we know the frequency of light at its source, then redshift lets us know how far away that source is. There is nothing else that redshift can tell us.
 
"The constancy of the horizon of the speed of light (accelerative (+) up to the universe's (photo) 'stop sign', and decelerative (-) down to the same) is tied to the constancy of the Big Bang (up and out) / Planck (down and in) / Infinity (collapsed) Horizon . . . the Horizon, too, of the largest Singularity, the largest Black Hole, of them all: the vertical universe. That collapsed Horizon of [.... / .... / Infinity] has and is rim gravity ingredient, the counter gravitational force to all the infinities of constituent [centers] of gravity (the tree is in the forest / the forest is in the tree). It all ties together."

". . . the Horizon, too, of largest Singularity, the largest Black Hole, of them all: the vertical universe." (Thus, the greatest 'Vortex', too: the Vortex, and the [countless] vortices, of the multi-layered, multi-leveled, multi-dimensional -- the "zoom" -- non-local Multiverse-Universe and local universe (the [countless] local universe vortices)!)

("That collapsed Horizon of [.... / .... / Infinity] has and is rim gravity ingredient, the counter gravitational force to all the infinities of constituent [centers] of gravity (the tree is in the forest / the forest is in the tree). It all ties together.")

There are no straight lines unless you know the "leads", the "cuts" through the Big Curvature and more local curvatures, the spirals spiraling of the vortices. And only the traveler, 0-point to 0-point..., can deal with, find, and make the cut . . . the cuts.

Does the Vortex ever cease, ever settle? If you must ask you know nothing of the Big Bang (up and out) / Planck (down and in) / Infinity (collapsed) Horizon . . . the Horizon, too, of the largest Singularity, the largest Black Hole, of them all: the vertical universe. If you must ask, you know nothing of the constants of 'infinity', 'infinitesimal', and 'infinities' ('finite' is the inconstant). You dismiss it, them, out of hand, and lose your way. Then you can never track to anything even approaching "unification."

Could you please clarify.
 
Just did clarify (#5), to my satisfaction. Have been clarifying, more or less, for all the time I've been here on Space.com 'Forums' (and for far longer elsewhere for more than fifty years (one way or another (one spoke or another trying for consistent runs of all spokes true into the hub . . . no runaway loose ends))). My totality of book, after seventy years, is in all the pieces getting there, and I've got there to my ever-increasing satisfaction. JWT confirmed one prediction, so far, I made from my visualizations right here on the Forums prior to that confirmation being carried out. I knew it would.

What prediction was confirmed?
 
Fair enough. Can you clarify your positions in plain English so a layman like myself can understand. I believe in the KISS principle.
Not a chance, one layman to another. And I won't go into a long, deep, explanation of why. Suffice to say I discovered long ago that I think, and communicate my thinking, in more dimensions than one or two ("...., why do you keep jumping into manure and come up smelling like a rose?!")

"Since the zero result of the M-M [Michelson-Morley] experiment can be explained by the Galilean velocity transformation, the Lorentz coordinate transformation formula becomes unnecessary. It means that the most important experimental basis for special relativity does not exist. Einstein's special relativity is just a historical misunderstanding." https://ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/apr/article/view/0/48536

Oh là là ! Western physics is irreversibly post-truth, so the truth resurfaces elsewhere.
