Explain the theory of relativity to a retard

From what I understand the faster an object moves the slower it experiences the effects of time in comparison to an object with a lower velocity.
I call bullshit.
If, in picrel, both rockets have same quantity of radioactive material that decays over an unspecified half life and the red and blue rocket leave point A same time and arrive at point B at the same time. Your telling me, that blue will have more of the original radioactive material, because...? Even though both rockets moved between two points at the same time. Nah

    Yes and it has been experimentally proven. The oldest such example being muon decay in cosmic rays. Their half life is so short we should never be able to detect them, but we do.

      But couldn't the muon decay be explained as cosmic rays creating them closer to where they are being measured? Or did the account for that in the experiment?

          Relativity is always in effect as long as there exists things which can be compared against eachother, because that's what relativity is, the comparison of things relative to other things

    Fellow moron here o/
    so from what i understand so far is that acceleration is the reason for this.
    but
    wouldnt the blue rocket use up more radioactive material in order to suffice for the given acceleration? wouldnt the radioactive material be directly proportional to the acceleration?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      acceleration is not needed. one can imagine an experiment with 3 ships instead of 2. all them with constant velocity, 2 fast and 1 slow. the first fast ship crosses path with the slow one and syncs the masses of the radioactive material via messaging. it later crosses path with the second fast ship and transmits the mass number of its remaining material. the 2nd fast ship then watches a similar amount until it finally meets up with the slow ship. the slow ship will have less material remaining.

        Bull. Shit. If they start at the same place and end at the same place at the same time, the amount of material would be the same.

    In your contrived example blue moves faster than red because he covers a longer distance in the same time.
    Locally the material decays just as fast for both. Blue will appear to have slower decay from Red's perspective.

    Now the claim is that when Blue and Red adjust to meet eachother Red will discover that Blue's material has decayed less. However, as covered earlier, from Red's perspective, the material he had decayed normally, and since his journey took the same amount of time, we have arrived at a paradox. What is the truth? Where did we go wrong?

      they can both go in the same straight line and blue can go really slow for a while then go close to lightspeed then slow down until both arive at same time. doesn't have to be a longer path.

          In your hypothetical, the person standing still. Its a bad example tho, because the amount and angle of the arrows is dependent on the device of measurement (I.e. the person being fired upon). A better example would would be a person standing still and a person running in the rain. In this case, the two would experience the same amount of rain. With only thing different being the angle of contact of the rain.

            Correct. So even if that time is always the same we can only ASSUME the speed of light is constant. If that assumption works in calculations then maybe that's fine for the time being, but what happens when certain equations stop working? Should we start questioning our assumptions about the speed of light as a constant, or should we start inserting dark matter and other inventions into the equations to force them to keep working? Modern science has tended to choose the latter. That's the problem I have with treating assumptions as facts.

            the thing about models is that (assuming (btw here's a legit use of the word assumption) they are good models) work within a certain domain of applicability; exceed that domain and the model doesn't make good predictions anymore

            if a more fundamental model comes along, it should reduce to the less accurate model in the appropriate circumstances. for instance, quantum mechanics reproduces classical mechanics in the limit of macroscopic systems. that's a really good indication that it's a good model, because classical mechanics has proven to be highly successful in terms of explaining macroscopic systems on everyday scales people are familiar with.

            The only frame of reference that makes sense is one where photons don't move but propagate in the shape of a perfect sphere. In that frame of reference the one-way speed of light is constant. Special Relativity only cares about the two-way speed of light and the one-way speed is different for different observers. The preferred frame of reference makes calculations a lot easier when dealing with several points with different speeds. Relative spacetime is an illusion, spacetime is absolute.

            What OP isn't asking is the theory of relativity.
            What is OP fundamentally asking is HOW the discovery happened, and what it leans on. OP is asking that because how modelling works isn't taught at lower levels, meaning OP has nothing to use as a basis for imaging how to form observation into framework..

    tl;dr version
    1. Space and time are just different facets of the same thing, spacetime, and everyone and everything moves through spacetime at the same rate from their own perspective - one second per second.
    2. Motion through the 'space' part of spacetime comes at the expense of motion through the 'time' part of spacetime. The projection of your passage through space and time into another reference frame is interpreted by someone in the other frame as a dilation of time and a contraction of space.
    3. Transformations are only symmetric for inertial frames - those travelling at constant velocity with respect to each other. Acceleration breaks the symmetry and your projection of their motion and their projection of yours no longer match - one of you objectively experiences a greater passage of time than the other.

    The key part is "effects of time". Interactions that lead to radioactive decay don't happen instantaneously, they happen at the speed of causality that is also the maximum speed of light. The closer anything moves to the speed of light the slower those interactions will happen.
    I.E.: a simple bouncing from point to point will slow down as the object approaches the speed of light. That is called an Einstein clock.

    Let's say, for simplicity, radiactive muon is two spheres. And let's say these spheres are separated (decay event) when a photon hits from other to another sphere. Wouldn't it make sense, if these spheres are moving,that it takes longer time that photon to travel? It would need travel the hypotenuse of a triangle, which other side is their sideways distance and other is their travel distance during the fly time.
