    If time were relative even though its movement is perpendicular
    (at right angles ( _| )) to the length is contradictive. Time moves in the exact same pace, but length can be proven throught pythagoras, is contracted.

    If time had shortened, then compared to what? A still system? Einstein also stated clearly, that there cannot be any such system. (according to what I've heard)

    Let's expand this to the trippling problem: one moves in speed V1, one in V2, and the third in V3.

    So given there is no certain still system there is no time difference between the 3 objects. Just like when you move x wise, the z coordinate is still the same length, and so is time aswell. Time is simply a perpendicular dimension to the lengthcontraction. It isn't dilated any at all.

    Why don't you guys dispute that, will you?

    Time dilation does not exist. You are indeed correct about that. However, your explanation as to why time dilation does not exist, is just as illogical as the idea of time dilation itself. Time is not a dimension, surely that is an absurdity. Dimensions are just arbitrary concepts made up by humans for the purpose of measurement and semantics. They have no physical or real connection to reality. They cannot be used to directly explain physical phenomena.

    Waveman - Are you here to intentionally spread misinformation, or is it just that your own knowledge is false and you are sharing your ignorance with others unaware?

    I suspect that you have never questioned the validity and accuracy of your own knowledge. You are no different from the scores of other mindless buffoons who do nothing but repeat what they have read in a textbook without even understanding the information in question. You never verify that your knowledge is correct nor do you investigate other logical possibilities. Because of this, you are in no position at all to judge the the information I have presented.

    The distance between 2 points in space for a photon is not 0, but the time it takes to get there.
    however the x dimension is contracted to zero.

    t = length(observer)/c

    because the length of the observer divided with the speed of the photon is the time it takes to travel the distance.

    length = ct.

    so:

    (x^2 + y^2 + z^2)(1 - v^2/c^2) + (ct)^2 = length^2.

    Hence it really looks like (ct)^2 could be a dimension.

    Argument?

    That would be a deeply flawed assumption for you to make. Now, can we please both step out of this thread so the OP can get an answer to his question? You are free to PM me if you wish to continue walking down this off-topic path where you're presenting non-accepted interpretations.
