The basis of SRT ( by an uneducated Socratus) ===. SRT is based on four facts.
Fact number 1: The constant speed of photon in vacuum is minimal. ( from vacuum's point of view and tachyon theory )
Fact number 2: The inertia of photon depends on its potential energy: E=Mc^2 In 1905 Einstein asked: ? Does the inertia of a body depend upon its energy content ?? As he realized the answer was: ? Yes, it depends on E= Mc^2 ? It means that inertia of quantum particle (photon, electron ) depends on E= Mc^2 ( nobody explains the details of such possibility of inertia movement. How can E=Mc^2 be responsible for inertial movement of quantum particle ? ) Someone wrote to me: ?An old professor of mine used to say that anyone who can answer that question what inertia is, would win a Nobel Prize. ?
Fact number 3: Every speed and energy ( including the speed and energy of photon ) are relative. Speed, energy, impulse . . . . etc they are physical parameters which belong to one, single quantum particle. If you change one parameter all others will change automatically too. For example : In 1916 Sommerfeld found the formula of electron : e^2=ah*c. If you change one electron's parameter all others parameters also will be changed and the electron's energy will change too. Take, for example, electron in atom. Electron tied with atom by the energy: E=-me^4/2h*^2= -13,6eV. But if someone parameter changes, then electron jumps out from atom with energy E=h*f ( it is said: electron emits quantum of light, but where this quantum of light is hidden in the electron, in which pocket ?) In vacuum the energy of electron is E=Mc^2 (according to SRT and Dirac), but when someone parameter is changed then electron jumps out from vacuum with energy E=h*f. ( effect of vacuum fluctuation ).
Fact number 4: The Lorentz equations explain the transformations (revolving movement) of quantum particles using the Goudsmit ? Uhlenbeck inner impulse of particle: h* = h/ 2pi. ===. All the best. Israel Sadovnik Socratus =====? P.S. " Einstein's special theory of relativity is based on two postulates: One is the relativity of motion, and the second is the constancy and universality of the speed of light. Could the first postulate be true and the other false? If that was not possible, Einstein would not have had to make two postulates. But I don't think many people realized until recently that you could have a consistent theory in which you changed only the second postulate." / Lee Smolin, The Trouble With Physics, p. 226. / # Question: Can quantum of light change its constant speed ? Answer: Faster-than-light. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faster-than-light etc . . . ===?
