1. Introduction to sapere aude:

Reclaiming the common sense foundations of knowledge: The incapacitation of mathematics by logicism -

Special Relativity as evidence, with catastrophic consequences for physics.

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 by Prof. Herbert Dingle, an internationally acknowledged expert on the physics of SR, namely his Science at the Crossroads (1972). Like his predecessors, he was derided by the experts on the "mathematics of SR". Anybody of lesser academic stature daring to try to unravel the secret of the "paradoxical" outcome of Einstein's mathematical argument would have found himself ridiculed as a crank as well as frequently barred from access to academic resources. Students of physics tend to register Einstein's SR as an oddity, to be looked at given some idle moment at a later stage of their career; for the reactions and protests of those that do, and are alarmed by Einstein's impossible physical suppositions and logical and quantitative errors, see the scores of papers published in Walter Babins's The general science journal.

My sketch is brief, cursory and unsatisfactory; if, aged 88 and in poor health, I keep updating it, this is because an unending trickle of emails by young "critics" shows that, as ever, one proceeds in disregard of the basic literature. In that climate, my earlier attempts to elaborate on the philosophical foundations of our thinking about the world (physics in its widest sense) would have been bound to be pointless. There is also a tendency to assume that conclusions may be "looked up": I am being asked to cite "chapter and verse" for what I am saying.
If SR matters at all, it is not as a theory, but as evidence of a weakness of thought caused by developments in mathematics. In that regard SR is important precisely because of the utter simplicity of Einstein's original 1905 "transformation of coordinates", the logical basis for the paradoxical effects of the theory. Without grasp of Einstein's mathematical arguments the peculiar nature of SR effects cannot be understood; funds are being wasted on experimental verification of effects that, by their very nature, are unverifiable (one and the same clock must be able to go at different rates depending on the direction of the lightray; corresponding lengths in relative motion, l and l', are "reciprocally contracted", such that l>l' as well as l'>l).

Critics have puzzled why mathematicians assume an equation x' = a(x - vt) to denote a two-dimensional object (in "spacetime"), whereas, in his 1905 paper, Einstein assumes his x' to be the (one-dimensional) pathlength of a lightray. From their training, physicists would be familiar with n-dimensional mathematical spaces (n>3); the often-heard critical dismission of such spaces, including "spacetime", or coordinate systems altogether, as unwarranted abstractions exposes the community of critics in its entirety to ridicule. Phyiscists would also be expected to remember the explicit treatment, in elementary textbooks of geometry, of pathlengths such as Einstein's x': here the t is NOT a coordinate but a parameter. The difference matters: for Einstein's concluding set of equations, if read as abstract algebra, is not only valid but has the important property of forming a group. If, on the other hand, we understand that this is geometry, we are able to visualize his "lightsphere" and to correlate his various equations with the pathlengths they are meant to denote. Only now we are able to see that Einstein's procedure, on purely mathematical grounds, is spectacularly, grotesquely, alarmingly false. (See my page 2.)

To chart a way out of such confusions, physicists should pay some attention to developments in mathematics and its philosophy. Kline should be compulsory reading; he reports, for instance, that at the time of the developments of new symbolic techniques (algebras, "logics"), it was found that one and the same equation may be valid in one logic but false in another. Clearly, SR is just such a case. Philosophers would have contributed: the assumption, for instance, that the falsication of thought by perceptual error can be avoided only by restriction to abstract symbolic procedure in deliberate disregard of context (Kline; see also Passmore on disputes about logic and abstraction; see also my bibliography for objections to the increasing role of "logicism"). We need not be surprised that mathematicians tend to disregard Einstein's geometric argument and confine themselves to a blind algebraic reading of his symbolic expressions, especially as his text does not excel in lucidity.

In sum, the difficulty in regard of SR arises because of a problem with Einstein's 1905 transformation. If misread as algebra, in disregard of Einstein's explicit assumption that his x', for instance, is a pathlength, one can no longer see what is wrong with his procedure. General Relativity is based on assumptions as in SR; "counterintuitive" mathematical procedures have become the staple of modern theoretical physics.

In classical logic, paradox has been read as symptom of an error somewhere in a deduction. In the development of the new logics, and despite the finding that a solution may be valid in one logic but false in another, paradox has come to be celebrated as a demonstration of the power of mathematics to reveal to us truths that transcend common sense. The SR demonstration of the paradoxical nature of spacetime is especially admired because of its supposed significance for our understanding of the physical world. The recognition that SR is mathematically invalid in the given geometric context should warn us of the danger presented by trends to symbolic abstraction rampant in modern mathematics.

The mathematical debacle that has given us the "mathematics of SR" justifies the reclamation of a common sense foundation of knowledge:

sapere aude!


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).
