 Fundamentally Anisotropic Light-Velocity at the Foundation of Classical Physics

 

Thomas E. Chamberlain, Ph.D.*

 

 “... any two clocks of [accelerated system] Σ are synchronous with respect to [nonaccelerated reference system] S at the time t = 0, and undergo the same motion, they remain continuously synchronous with respect to S.

 On the other hand, we must not consider the [same-motion] local time as simply the “time” of Σ, because, in fact, two [clocks] at two different points of Σ are not [synchronous] in the sense of [special relativity] when their local times are equal to each other.” Quotations in reversed order. (Albert Einstein, Principle of Relativity and Gravitation, 1907, p. 900) 

 

 

 

ABSTRACT

 

While it is certainly true that Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity are insightful and useful models of physical reality, they are interim theories destined to be contained within a deeper understanding. An examination of Einstein’s 1907 essay Principle of Relativity and Gravitation reveals “same motion” acceleration within his “nonaccelerated reference system S ” as the basis for an alternative transformation as foil or counterpoint to the standard Lorentz transformation. Using this alternative transformation - closely related to the recently substantiated optically-anisotropic Selleri gauge (Rizzi et al., 2008) - Einstein’s progressive time-shift due to linear, first-order acceleration is re-derived at the deeper anisotropic level, thereby further validating the Selleri gauge. This same-motion transformation is again employed within Einstein’s reference system S - but now in a two-phase procedure  - to establish Selleri’s optical anisotropy as a fundamental condition of space-time. Indeterminate space-time of relativistic-classical physics is also established in a similar (two-phase) procedure, by showing Schrödinger’s cat to be (briefly) both alive and dead in the determination and conclusion of a removed observer. These advances define a new neoclassical paradigm midway between the relativistic-classical and quantum-mechanical paradigms, and recommend singularly unbounded (i.e., one-way infinite) light-speed as the empirically-promoted basis for resolving the Bell-EPR impasse and defeating the divide between classical physics and quantum theory.
