    Fredkatt -

    Einstein didn't "dumb down" Maxwell; he declared him irrelevant by declaring the "speed" of light a constant (i.e., "whatever the speed of light is, these physical laws are true", and then tried to establish global covariance as the ultimate goal - IMO, Quantum Theory is all you get, but it it is a very subtle discussion)

    (Kaluza-Klein showed how Maxwell's equations could be interpreted within the framework of General Relativity; Einstein apparently was quite surprised...)

    Einstein's thought was at a level that John Gabriel can't even imagine - JG is an imbecile...

    Einstein's ideas do have very deep implications, and are difficult to understand for one steeped in classical physical concepts. He is asking fundamental ontological questions, and won the Nobel prize for the bridge between Planck's Blackbody equation and the foundations of quantum electrodynamics (the photo-electric effect).

    Quantum field theory (which depends on STR, and is the foundation of the Standard Model) has been verified out to something like 13 decimal places. John Gabriel obviously knows absolutely nothing about physics, mathematics (especially pre-calculus vector analysis), or much of anything else, and I shudder to think of the time wasted on his computer coding.....

    It is truly a waste of time to keep answering John's imbecilic ravings, since he knows no physics equations to quote, and his misinterpretations of even the Greeks are well-known. I would say he goes around in circles, but he can't because he rejects the invention of the wheel....

    As I said, if you'd like to discuss this privately, email me and we'll find a different place to communicate without interruptions, since I see you have a professional background similar to mine...

    Meanwhile, I'm off to a performing gig with a beautiful dancer in a nightclub in Santa Barbara, CA... John, eat your hear out....

    To get an idea of how good Chuckie Cheese Keyser (BuleriaChk) is at anything requiring logic and skill, go here.

    Any Flamenco street player would be horrified!

    I've heard 5 year old Korean children with better guitar playing skills. What's kind of funny is that Chuckie was trained by an "expert" Flamenco player.
    The more I publish the truth, the more society hates me.
    There is no sympathy for those who expose deeply flawed mainstream ideas.

    (Like physics and mathematics, John Gabriel knows nothing of flamenco either and makes comments about it that have equal value to those he makes about other disciplines)

    Hey, my Flamenco skills are better than no skills at all.... (and at least I occasionally get paid for them).

Did we leave something in the original equations that may be important?

    The rest of me thinks my time could be better spent on more practical pursuits. I appreciate your offer to walk through this with me. Let me think about it, because once I commit, I will be consumed with it and my day job will get in the way.
    To make the jump from classical physics to relativistic, one has to reconcile Newton's Three Laws of Motion with Maxwell's result, so it is very important to know where those laws came from; the concepts of coordinate systems, and their relation to mass, charge, motion and energy.

    (Kaluza-Klein showed how Maxwell's equations could be interpreted within the framework of General Relativity; Einstein apparently was quite surprised... this actually goes back to the Lorentz transform)

    When I began my review, and got deeply into it I found out that I had taken a lot of things for granted, and I had to re-examine all the foundations in context; especially calculus, vectors, and linear system analysis (when I got back into math/physics I took a course at UCSB in signal analysis and processing, which filled in a LOT of gaps in making the transitions to modern physics...

    (I was in the Master's degree program in EE at UCSB (I was in the R&D department at SBRC modelling image processing on CCD arrays), but got transferred to work with one of the leading researchers in HgCdTe semiconductor theoretical physics (Dr. Tom Casselman) at Santa Barbara Research Center (Raytheon), so had to dive deep into solid state physics instead. Then I went over to General Research, and had a unique opportunity to study in all relevant fields of physics - optical image analysis, radar, nuclear effects, etc. )

    And I found that there are a lot of initially unclear explanations until the context of the analysis was clarified; and I was fortunate to be among a lot of peers that could clarify them from their perspectives.

    Particularly in Relativity, where theorists have a penchant for setting c = 1....
    (there IS a reason for that, but it has deep implications for Physics - especially Quantum Triviality

    See how I handed BuleriaChk his butt the last time I took him seriously.

    This rat-faced fool couldn't align two logic statements if his life depended on it.

    John misses the point of every discussion in which he is involved. As far as logic is concerned, he wouldn't understand a truth table even if he got it directly from Wittgenstein himself....

    But I digress.... Fredkratt - send me a private message and we'll continue the physics discussion elsewhere (for obvious reasons)

    bwaaahaaaahaaaaa. :d Did you read any other philosopher besides Wittgenstein ever?

    Well, my BA (in 1968) from UCSB was in Mathematics and Philosophy. But I surely never met anyone at John Gabriel's level of, uh, intellectual development there (or anywhere since, come to think of it)..

    On purpose....

    Of course you haven't! I am inimitable. BWAAHAAAAHAAAA. One of a kind.

    You have been privileged that I have addressed you at all!
