Discussing the Lorentz and the Absolute Transformations

There is now in physics two Euclidean transformations for our study of the relativity of motion. The first is what we have always known as the Lorentz transformation while the second is what I have now decided to call the absolute transformation.

The Lorentz transformation is named after the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz who alongside others had derived the transformation in order to explain why the speed of light remained the same for all inertial reference frames. 

The Lorentz transformation is limited in that it applies only to uniform frames but the absolute transformation is encompassing because it applies to both uniform frames and accelerated frames. 

The above is quite a superficial presentation of the difference between the Lorentz transformation and the absolute transformation. This is because the differences between these two transformations go deeper and it is from there that they become either limited or encompassing.

Basically, in physics, transformations refer to how the coordinates of space and time transform between two frames in relative motion with each other.

And remember that in the Lorentz transformation, we learn about how two frames in relative uniform motion cannot agree on the proportions of space and time due to space contraction and time dilation respectively.

We also learn about how space and time transform in the absolute transformation but it is different from what we have in the Lorentz transformation. You can get the Treatise to know more about this.

In the Lorentz transformation, we study how relative space and time transform between two frames in relative motion with each other, but in the absolute transformation, we study how absolute space and time transform between two frames in relative motion.

It is obvious from the above that when I speak of relative space and time, I do not refer to the character of space and time as it is the result of relative motion between any two frames, rather I refer to the inherent nature of space and time themselves that is common to any two frames in relative motion in the Lorentz transformation.

This also applies to the concept of absolute space and time which is the settled, unchanging nature of space and time between any two frames in the absolute transformation. The Lorentz and the absolute transformations are not based on the same inherent, unchanging nature of space and time. 

In the Lorentz transformation, we are dealing with relative space and time which are purely physical and which are what is measured by our physical tools. This is different for the absolute transformation.

For the absolute transformation, we are dealing with absolute space and time which are metaphysical and that cannot be subject to physical measurement but are still the true, transcendent nature of space and time without which we cannot understand the universe.

The discovery of absolute space and time and their inclusion into a Euclidean transformation is important because it has now enabled us to describe both uniform and accelerated frames by only a Euclidean transformation which before was impossible to achieve.

This is an important accomplishment that proves the theory of the universe. This accomplishment is the road to the true unified understanding of the universe which in its harmonious nature cannot exhibit two different geometrical principles, such as Euclidean and Riemann geometries.

This shows you how post-modern physics has changed our understanding of relativity by changing what should be the inherent nature of space and time for all frames considered. What we now have as the common nature of space and time is their absolute nature and no longer their relative nature as we had in modern physics.

The Lorentz transformation is an important transformation that underlies modern relativity but the absolute transformation is what underlies post-modern relativity. Both are importantly different in this regard.

The Lorentz transformation was derived before Einstein presented his theory of special relativity, but it was soon obvious that it satisfies special relativity. This is because both Lorentz and Einstein had set out to explain why the speed of light is constant for inertial reference frames.

(I want you to read the scientific article above about the Michelson-Morley experiment and how post-modern physics interprets the result of this experiment.)

But in Lorentz theory, he held strongly to the aether which the observed constant speed of light seemed to refute whereas Einstein in special relativity abandoned the idea of the luminiferous aether which was purported to be the medium for the propagation of light wave and had proceeded to assert the independence of the light wave.

Nevertheless, both Lorentz’s relativity and Einstein’s relativity depend on the Lorentz transformations. It is quite fascinating that both theories are mathematically similar and that they produce the same empirical results.

The two theories only differ at a philosophical level in that Lorentz’s relativity required the aether whereas Einstein’s relativity doesn’t. And as can be said, Lorentz’s relativity sought to explain why the aether was undetectable than it sought to explain why the speed of light is constant.

But Einstein’s relativity sought to explain why the speed of light is constant dismissing the existence of the aether. This is the subtle difference between both theories. And as history showed, Einstein view won and it was probably for its simplicity.

The Lorentz transformation is however what stood as the mathematical structure of modern relativity which is only now being challenged by post-modern relativity.

Post-modern relativity is introducing us to the absolute transformation which is only mathematically similar to the Lorentz transformation when we are dealing with uniform frames. When we begin to deal with accelerated frames, they are no longer so mathematically similar.

Their differences arise because in the absolute transformation we are dealing with two non-mechanical waves that are rightly incorporated and that are respective to uniform and accelerated frames.

But in the Lorentz transformation, light is the only non-mechanical wave incorporated and it is what is wrongly applied or extended to explain the transformations of space and time for both uniform and accelerated frames.

In the absolute transformations, light which is the first non-mechanical wave is what underlies the transformations of space and time for any two uniform frames. While the gravi-electromagnetic wave, which is the second non-mechanical wave, is what underlies the transformations of space and time for any two accelerated frames.

Looking carefully at the above, you will begin to see the true conceptual nature of relativity which is not captured by the Lorentz transformation and which is why it has to be discarded.

Now, the discovery of the second non-mechanical wave in the universe and the role it plays in the transformations of the coordinate system cannot be captured by the Lorentz transformation or by modern physics because it requires the concomitant discovery of the nature of absolute space and time.

Without probing the nature of absolute space and time, we cannot make the discovery of the second non-mechanical wave in the universe. So, the absolute transformation is based on absolute space and time, unlike the Lorentz transformation which is based on relative space and time.

You must see from the above how the absolute transformation is different from the Lorentz transformation, though both are Euclidean transformations.

It may come as a surprise that relativity is applied to absolute space and time. This is one of the implications of the new theory of absolute relativity. This has been accomplished because we have replaced all our former understanding of physics with a new understanding of the absolute nature of all things.

Light, gravity, energy, momentum, and every other concept that is the concern of relativity have been re-introduced into physics with the understanding of their absolute nature. They are what can be found in absolute relativity.

So, absolute relativity is a very independent theory that does not depend on the classical or the modern definitions of the objects of scientific investigation.

And it is when we proceed into the true, absolute nature of the universe that we find that relativity is a very fundamental principle that applies even to the absolute nature of the universe.

This is what has led to the conceptual framework of absolute relativity which has given us the now discussed absolute transformation.

Furthermore, how the absolute transformation is based on absolute space and time can be better said to be that the absolute transformation is based on the great conceptualization whereas the Lorentz transformation is based on the conceptualization.

The Lorentz transformation is physical whereas the absolute transformation is metaphysical. The new metaphysical structure of the absolute transformation is what expands the application of Euclidean geometry for our understanding of relativity.

Euclidean geometry not only becomes what applies to both uniform and accelerated frames, it also becomes what applies both inside and outside the atomic world. The unique discovery of the absolute transformation is what leads us to the knowledge of the encompassing unity of the universe.

Now, as I must have said or hinted in my other scientific articles, the second non-mechanical wave in the universe incorporated in the absolute transformation is what satisfies as the long-sought aether.

So, while special relativity was right about the independence of the electromagnetic wave, it was however wrong about the non-existence of the aether which holds all matter in absolute accelerated space.

The second non-mechanical wave in the universe is the new aether of post-modern physics and it is what underlies and governs the transformation of absolute space and time for accelerated frames s can be seen in the absolute transformation.

Understanding the above shows you why general relativity is a very wrong theory of the universe. The non-Euclidean transformations of general relativity are non-existent in the universe.

The universe maintains only the Euclidean transformations for all reference frames and this is made possible because of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe. I want this great mystical and scientific truth to be deeply impressed in your mind.

So, we now have in post-modern physics what I call the absolute transformation and it differs from the Lorentz transformation in the following manners which have been discussed in this article:

1. The Lorentz transformation is based on relative space and time but the absolute transformation is based on absolute space and time.

2. The Lorentz transformation only incorporates light which is the first non-mechanical wave in the universe but the absolute transformation incorporates both light and the gravi-electromagnetic wave which are the two non-mechanical waves in the universe.

3. The Lorentz transformation only applies to uniform frames but the applies to both uniform and accelerated frames.

4. The Lorentz transformation has limited application in the universe but the absolute transformation has unlimited application in the universe in that it applies to both the atomic and the non-atomic worlds.

The above are the very insightful differences between the Lorentz and the absolute transformations which their only similarity is that they are both Euclidean.

Until next time,

I will be here.
