The Liberation of Time
Year: 2004 Pages: 36
In the last ten years I have been working at the description of natural phenomena by observers in motion. It is a problem that many consider solved once for all by the Lorentz transformations of the Theory of Special Relativity (TSR in the following), but that actually was left open for reasons I will say. The result of this research is twofold: an explanation of the empirical data better than provided by the TSR, and the elimination of those features of the TSR which give rise to paradoxes; all this is obtained thanks to the liberation of time from the enslavement to space forced upon it in Minkowski space. The story is told in detail in a recent book [FS].
In the present paper I expound the basic ideas of the research leaving aside its mathematical parts.
