Yes, an excellent presentation. Yes, I was aware of all that. There was one mistake in verbiage when it was first mentioned that simultaneneity was out between the person at rest and the traveller, didn't make it clear that it was what one frame was thinking happened in the other frame. The truth, as later noted, was that BOTH frames seeing themselves at rest see the light in their frames being received simultaneously, which is what I have posted often here.
I have ALSO posted here that the math is correct in itself, and rather beautiful, if I may say so.
However, as I've also posted continuously here, lack of simultaneity creates a blocktime universe. It is false.
The key to the falseness is the baseline being used for the math. There is no time dimension in the first place. Time is not passsing. The now is not changing, it is only an illusion that it is changing. What exists is a nowness with space dimensions containing objects which are subject to "changing", and the changing of the objects that occur being change of position of the particles, this change of position of the particles are position but also produce what we see as state changes of objects in now. Also, ties into what we call motion.
Speed is a comparison of distance covered COMPARED to an agreed upon object's distance covered...the hand moving on the face of a watch for instance...and speed should simply be a number...."That is going at a speed of 10", for instance.
None of this contains a time dimension.
We could be looking at a "dimension" of 'changing forces'/action in addition to the usual 3 dimensions but is is a motive parameter only. This dimension takes place in now, which is simply existence in an unchanging "now". There actually is neither past nor future, as such, and it is only because Man appears to himself as a creature of time that this mistake is being made.
The math that would actually be correct has to have all points in the universe at rest continuously in reference to each other and changes like gap closure between two at rest point considered without any reference to a "time dimension". It and lack of simultaneity simply do not exist.
