Our observations of motion has been Terrestrial in origin, and is subject to the
parameters of that particular frame of reference, which is thereby the absolute
frame of reference for all motion.
All motion is relative to the Earth.*
[According to Earth units of measurement.
A change of parameter moves absolute frame elsewhere, per Lorentzian logic]
Motion occurs only where net force is applied to a body, changing its velocity
relative to it's previous state. If no net force has been applied no change in velocity
has occurred. The occupant of a vehicle which has been put into motion relative to
the Earth by an application of force will observe that the Earth is in motion relative to
him, but this is only observed. The Earth has not changed velocity whatsoever if no
force was applied to it.
As proof that only he is in motion he may compare his time with the time of a
stationary Earthbound clock. His time will dilate, while a stationary clock's time will
not change. A stationary observer will observe the occupant's time to be behind,
while the occupant will observe the stationary clock to be ahead of his. Obviously
only one clock has varied, which is the clock in motion relative to the Earth.
Relative mass and length contraction are of course also relative to the Earth frame
of reference. In each of these cases proportion must be considered. The occupant
will observe the mass of another object which is at rest relative to Earth to decrease
according to its mass in proportion to the vehicle's mass. Likewise, a stationary
object's length will be observed to extend in like fashion. Once again, the only mass
and length that has actually changed is that of the vehicle.
An observer in motion will observe the time, mass and length of a stationary object
to be inversely proportional to his own.
Since an observer in motion will observe time, mass and length in this manner, he
will also observe the velocity of light originating from a stationary source to have
increased as well.
The observed velocity of light is variable according to time varient.
A stationary observer will observe the velocity of light originating from an object in
motion to have decreased.
