http://www.logosjournal.com/issue_4.3/smolin.htm “Einstein’s Legacy —

Where are the “Einsteinians?”, Lee Smolin: “Quantum theory was not the

only theory that bothered Einstein. Few people have appreciated how

dissatisfied he was with his own theories of relativity. Special

relativity grew out of Einstein’s insight that the laws of

electromagnetism cannot depend on relative motion and that the speed

of light therefore must be always the same, no matter how the source

or the observer moves. Among the consequences of that theory are that

energy and mass are equivalent (the now-legendary relationship E =

mc2) and that time and distance are relative, not absolute. SPECIAL

RELATIVITY WAS THE RESULT OF 10 YEARS OF INTELLECTUAL STRUGGLE, YET

EINSTEIN HAD CONVINCED HIMSELF IT WAS WRONG WITHIN TWO YEARS OF

PUBLISHING IT.”

http://www.pitt.edu/~jdnorton/papers/OntologyOUP_TimesNR.pdf “What Can

We Learn about the Ontology of Space and Time from the Theory of

Relativity?”, John D. Norton: “In general relativity there is no

comparable sense of the constancy of the speed of light. The constancy

of the speed of light is a consequence of the perfect homogeneity of

spacetime presumed in special relativity. There is a special velocity

at each event; homogeneity forces it to be the same velocity

everywhere. We lose that homogeneity in the transition to general

relativity and with it we lose the constancy of the speed of light.

Such was Einstein’s conclusion at the earliest moments of his

preparation for general relativity. ALREADY IN 1907, A MERE TWO YEARS

AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE SPECIAL THEORY, HE HAD CONCLUDED THAT THE

SPEED OF LIGHT IS VARIABLE IN THE PRESENCE OF A GRAVITATIONAL FIELD;

indeed, he concluded, the variable speed of light can be used as a

gravitational potential.”

Note that the fact that THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS VARIABLE IN THE PRESENCE

OF A GRAVITATIONAL FIELD has made Lee Smolin conclude that SPECIAL,

not general, relativity is wrong. That is what Einstein discovered in

1907 and what a small number of clever relativists have known since

then. All other relativists have been hypnotized by Einstein’s

camouflage in Chapter 22 in his “Relativity”.
