Revisiting the Foundations: A Critical Analysis of the Special Theory of Relativity

Dr. Hasmukh Devidas Rathod [3]

Abstract: This article presents a comprehensive critique of the Special Theory of Relativity by focusing on the fundamental aspects of the Lorentz transformation equations. Through a detailed examination of situations where a moving inertial reference frame approaches or recedes from a given point, the author, Dr. Hasmukh D Rathod, challenges the theory?s core premises. By recalculating the Lorentz transformation for different scenarios, the paper argues against the concepts of time dilation, length contraction, and the four-dimensionality of space-time as posited by the special relativity. It suggests that the discrepancies in the Lorentz transformation calculations cast doubt on the entire framework of the theory, including its implications for the General Theory of Relativity and derived concepts such as Einsteins mass-energy equivalence equation. The author proposes a reevaluation of these foundational principles, calling for a reassessment of relativity?s role in modern physics.
