    There are, of course, a few authors that understand nonlinear Lorentz transformations. But I was the first and my derivation is the best. Who do you think has the best derivation?

    This crap belongs in New Hypotheses or Pseudoscience, not in the Physics forum.

    Is it your opinion that Wiley Online Library is not an authoritative source? How are the two papers in the opening post different in their hypotheses, science and conclusions?
