Section 1) Einstein's theory of special relativity where it comes from?
Einstein needed a constant for the speed of light in order to anchor his formula E = m c². No one can contest this proven formula and yes it implies that light speed be a constant. The question is how to define the speed constancy for light "c". From Michelson experience he defined it as an absolute value : its speed can only be 300 000 km/sec.
To explain that, he goes over Michelson's experience with the interferometer. But beware of what he does. He starts with an impossible statement and build a mathematical model that as a solution in a imaginary world of the fourth and fifth dimensions. In the Speed vectors diagram # 1 on the left, he states that the vectors "a" and "b" the speed of light measured in a rocket flying at a speed "v" have the same value. Mathematically he says that "b" the measured absolute speed of light is a projection of a vector from an other dimension.
The vectors equation a + v = b is impossible if b = a (when "v" is at 90 degrees with "a").
Einstein knew that and the theory was never proven. Because of Michelson's experience we agree
that in our reference system belonging to the earth, we will always measure the speed of light
at 300 000 km/sec. BUT WHY IS THE BIG QUESTION, there are other explanations.
