What then, is left?

Originally published in 10NOV2019. All rights are reserved. Of course, we begin with affirming conservation and symmetry, and see that good clocks exists based upon real, pragmatic and measurable quantities in spacetime. The best clocks make free motion look straight-forward as straight lines in spacetime. In spacetime, all freely moving particles travel in straight lines …

One step closer… from blockchains to stress-energy tensors

Originally copyrighted and published on 04NOV2019 Blockchains maybe a good set of "test particles" for General Relativity.  That is, in locally accelerated frames of reference, traveling roughly in the same direction.  It is, as a group, a relatively small series of "points" with little mass-energy (energy equivalence).   Thus, we can say they move as "free-particles" …

The Clock Condition in Spacetime and Einstein’s Relativity

Originally published on 25OCT2019 by Dr. Kenneth M. Beck. All rights reserved. In the singular work, GRAVITATION, Nobel Prize recipient Kip Thorne gives a basic definition of time at the outset in the practical, pragmatic sense that is always a hallmark of General Relativity, in terms of a “good clock,” “Good clocks make spacetime trajectories …
