    Mostly, though, this thread isn't any fun for me any more ......
    (especially when there is only one person involved, whose responses are neither fun nor exciting)....

    I'll be honest... I don't like seeing comments like that. It's like, "Jeez, Neverfly. You're so mean."

    So when is "fun" supposed to be fun?

    If a person has some "fun" at someone elses expense, they might find it has consequences:
    Mass. woman loses job after posting photo on Facebook

    So whose being mean there?

    It's debatable.

    It's "ok" to have a little fun in science. But science is still serious business. You don't get to have fun to the point that you're doing whatever you can to cast doubt on others hard work with invalid bunk just to promote your own ego.
    And those of us that are aware of the serious consequences of having so much fun that the common person on the street no longer knows who to believe, thinks that math is a matter of opinion and thinks science is a religion/dogma is obligated to stand up against it.
    Now- does this apply to BuleriaChk? I leave that an open question; I will only say, "Sorry to spoil your fun."

    The fun in physics for me is making fools of theoretical wannabes with pretentions that don't understand its ontological foundations....

    Iīve heard the term, but I canīt say that I understand the concept. Perhaps itīs because so many that quote it, base their arguments on the book by the same name. Iīve never read the book, but listening to the people making the argument, the whole concept seems too Ļdrug infestedĻ for me to understand. (What I mean by that is that they are more adept at toking and popping LSD than making sense.)

    You say the quoted material above and then make a snarky comment of your own.
    Now granted, I'm pretty ignorant about Relativity. But even so, I've seen nothing on either of the two links you've posted that shows anything Nobel Prize worthy.
    This proves that you understand more about Relativity than BuleriaChk does. Iīve already pointed out where his statements are self-contradictory, contradictory to observation and mathematical nonsense, so I donīt want to go over that again. Itīs best to ignore his rantings, which will never be Nobel Prize worthy unless he learns basic Physics and Math among other disciplines.

    I can not believe that, since you have made mistakes that even a first grader would never make. And then you insist that your stupid mistake is right and those pointing out that mistake are stupid.

    Case in point when and are cardinality of two sets of that partition the set whose cardinality is E. This is like insisting that .

    I am trying to provide intellectual shortcuts to see if I can dispense with indices on tensors and still make the fundamental concepts reasonably clear (starting with STR) (except for my .pdf distinguishing between Ghosts and Machines..) which you can ignore if it makes you uncomfortable.
    Like I said, tensors can not be dispensed with in Relativity, since only they address different frames. Remember that even though every tensor is a vector, not every vector is a tensor. Tensors are about change in coordinates resulting from change of reference frames. Of course you would know that if you knew some math.

    As a side note, itīs easier to make things clear starting with GTR rather than STR. I can show you how, if you were interested; but I donīt think you are since youīve already decided that logical math and Physics are stupid.

    Since you donīt understand STR, who are you to be lecturing on that?
