1. Introduction to sapere aude:

Reclaiming the common sense foundations of knowledge:
The incapacitation of mathematics by the replacement of visual logic by mathematical logic - Special Relativity as evidence.


The sapere aude title of my website echoes the call of the Enlightenment:

Enlightenment is Man's emergence from self-imposed tutelage, that is to say, from the inability to use the intellect without guidance by another. It is self-imposed if its cause does not lie in a deficiency of the intellect but of the courage and determination to use it autonomously. Sapere aude! Have the courage to think! is therefore the motto of the Enlightenment. (I. Kant, Was ist Aufklärung?)
Special Relativity (SR), ever since the publication of Einstein's 1905 paper, has been the subject of critical objections by qualified physicists; for a list of publications, see the 1904 G.O. Mueller Project (urls below, section 2, Links) and the CNPS database. One of the better known critical publications had been Prof. Herbert Dingle's Science at the Crossroads (1972). In his 1940 monograph The Special Theory of Relativity he had presented in full the orthodox rendition of the mathematical argument in support of SR, in extension of the "theory of transformation" outlined in Einstein's 1905 paper. What then had been D.'s 1972 problem, one not noticed in 1940? In his 1905 transformation Einstein presents the components of the position vector ct', that is to say, the pathlength attained, relatively to the origin of a moving system of coordinates, by a moving point representing the position of a light signal at some given time t. Einstein's final set of equations happens to be a valid solution of an algebraic invariance problem, but does not follow from the preceding geometric argument and creates difficulties for physics by its self-contradictory implications. Neither in 1940 nor 1972 does D. pay attention to Einstein's actual derivation; in 1972 he merely takes note of the paradoxical implications. His impasse is similar to that of the majority of physicists who cannot but accept the set as algebraically unobjectionable. Even where critics notice inadmissible steps in Einstein's deduction, the algebraic consistency of the final set of equations remains baffling; the only way out seems to be a physical interpretation that makes sense.

The mystery is the result of an oversight: namely that the role of "variables" differs in algebra and geometry. In algebra, every variable refers to a coordinate ("dimension"). In geometry, in contrast, as emphasized in books of mathematics today (e.g. Roe, or Thwaites), in the geometric measurement of the pathlength attained by a moving point, the t is not a coordinate ("dimension") but a parameter (for the general concept see Boyer). If that distinction is not understood, a geometric argument, like Einstein's in 1905, may be difficult to follow; visualization of the figure denoted by the symbolic expressions is no longer available. The oversight, as is alarmingly evident here, has had the absurd outcome that physicists have come to be unable to perform the simplest of distance calculations because they are bound to stumble over the t in an equation.

Why have mathematicians ignored the difference, and merely dismissed Einstein's critics as ignorant? As noted in Kline's history, classical mathematics, in its entirety, had been created in response to the problems of physics, in particular to problems of space. The introduction of coordinate geometry had facilitated deduction by algebraic operations; to date, geometry textbooks define symbolic usage by reference to figures. Three trends may have been responsible for the neglect of visualization. First, coordinate geometry allowed the geometric, i.e. visual analysis and interpretation of functions; but the purely algebraic approach tended to be faster so that visualization came to be seen as an impediment. Second, "pure" mathematics had long accepted n-dimensional spaces; a geometry confined to the 3D space of "flat-earthers" had, to some, seemed irksome. Einstein's supposed discovery of the 4D structure of the space of physics had come to them therefore as a liberation. Third, from earliest times logicians had found the concepts of geometry open to objection (see Heath); from the mid-nineteenth century we find them dismissing the visual approach to geometry altogether as fallacious (much detail of this progression in Kline; see also Passmore's discussion of the revealing premisses in the development of symbolic logic). In view of the dispute about the SR paradox extending over more than a century, one might have expected practising mathematicians to pay some attention. Kline, once again, is instructive: mathematicians specialize early and learn to be reluctant to engage in disputes elsewhere.

What is to be done? Current "interdisplinary" debates accept as normative the positions arrived at in closed academic sandboxes; we need to examine preconceptions and read more widely than is customary. Even at the outset of one's journey, clues are easily found: fundamental misconceptions in philosophy so weird as to suggest some kind of cognitive defect. For instance, Russell, held in high regard among philosophers, plays a central role in the philosophy of science and particularly in mathematics; even a cursory reading brings to the fore the preconceptions underlying his discourses on mind and perception (see, e.g., Russell's Preface to his The Analysis of Mind or his Essay on the Foundations of Geometry). The problem here is the notion of "mind" confronting an external world, a notion shared by the entire philosophy of mind tradition, regardless whether dualist or monistic. (The objects denoted by geometry are believed to be physical, unfit for the abstract analyses of mathematics.) As reported by Heath, classical geometry had been based Aristotle's definition of the abstract nature of geometric concepts and operations. (Aristotle, as a biologist, had seen the manifestions of life, including reason, as biological functions of the "soul" of organisms. Here the special role of vision bears a striking resemblance to the visual imaging of contemporary cognitive neuroscience: a biological capacity sui generis preformed by evolutionary adaption, not restricted to perception; see Archive, 1.3. Bibliography). Doubts about the validity of geometric arguments, and finally Russell's relentless campaign, have virtually eliminated geometry from mathematics teaching. Introductory pages to textbooks and dictionaries continue to list concepts and procedures; the ability to use them, and to think visually, unfortunately requires sustained practice.

As to SR itself, built on the outcome of Einstein's 1905 mathematical "transformation of coordinates", as a theory, it lacks foundation altogether. Philosophers have enthused about supposedly deep insights, such as "relativity", "spacetime", simultaneity. Unfortunately, only close attention to the mathematical argument reveals Einstein's irreal logic, as in the assumption, here fundamental, that it is possible to synchronize real clocks such that they run fast for signals one way and slow the other. He sees therefore no difficulty in believing to have proven that the SR pathlength ct'
(for instance, for signals along the x-axis. respectively to the right and left, ct' equals (c-v)t as well as = (c+v)t)
is the radius of a sphere. This very same wholly deceptive mathematical device underlies the General Theory: acceleration and deceleration, and therefore force, are eliminated by having clocks run slow or fast. Need one wonder that advances along these mathematical lines have rendered theoretical physics increasingly counter-intuitive?
In sum, SR is evidence of a muddle across several disciplines: The consequence is a mathematics literally gone blind, preaching the pursuit of truth by reliance on blind symbol pushing.

What is to be done in such a debacle? Critics must attend to the evidence (invalid arguments in mathematics and philosophy left unchallenged), must dare to think independently:

2. Links to databases (archives of publications critical of the foundations of physics and of SR).

Natural Philosophers Database, John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society (CNPS).
The organization, despairing of progress, is exploring a new strategy; the unfortunate new form of the (virtually inaccessible) database demonstrates the notion that critical arguments, however worthy, are of secondary importance because proven to be unproductive. To facilitate access, I include in my list of critics (Section 4) links to their CNPS profile. As the websites of older generations of physicists relentlessly keep going down, increasingly, the only access to their work is via the CNPS link.
Walter Babins's The general science journal - singular among sites hosted by individual critics.

Dr. Arteha's website is so rich as to demand inclusion here, as also
his Antirelativistic library
and the resource Physical Congress, St. Petersburg (formerly www.physical-congress.spb.ru/), with English links in preparation.
(I am grateful for Dr. Artehas's graceous help with information.)
(Some of the papers presented at the St. Petersburg conferences are also available at http://novamir.org/?page_id=46)

For Prof. Bartocci's erudite e-journal Episteme (2000-2004) go to http://itis.volta.alessandria.it/episteme/. (The Episteme-site is often unavailable for long periods, but has tended eventually to turn up again.)
Comment: Note that Prof. Bartocci, a mathematician, declares that in "a mathematical (and therefore theoretical) sense, SR is completely consistent and correct"; see http://www.cartesio-episteme.net/quest.htm.

For an exhaustive documentation of books and papers critical of SR see the German GOM Project Relativity (pseudonymous G. O. Mueller) - 95 YEARS OF CRITICISM OF THE SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY (1908-2003) (now expanded to 2012), in particular

In the A-Z list of critics of foundations I refer to lists of typical titles (books, articles, conference papers); because of its size my references to the GOM Project are highly selective. The email correspondence published by Prof. Bartocci is also of interest. References in the A-Z below are as follows:


3. Critics A-Z

In view of their large number (the GOM bibliography - by no means complete - names ca. 1350 authors) I include here only those critics who have published (or participated in events such as conferences) since 1970, or where GOM-Kap.4 contains information about their arguments (summaries, quotations, reviews, comments). My criterion of selection is the defence of common sense (with comment in the case of exceptions).
