About Buddha

A short tribute and apologize to Buddha...

Misled understanding of frame

Before Relativity, the Newtown's hypothesis of ether considered a unique and universal reference frame in which every motion were absolutely referring to.
Because of the Michelson & Morlay's experiment any notion of reference frame has been discarded.

With Newtown's ether, both Buddha A and B are moving in their own frame and they can measure their absolute speed in that universal medium. When Buddha A launches a ball to Buddha B, every observer doesn't consequently measure the same speed for the ball. The absolute speed of the ball is different from the speed in the A frame which is also different from the speed in the B frame.

When photon has been discovered in the early 20th century, the grained component of the light was looked upon as a material particle, like the Buddha's ball. The same difference of speed was then awaited by physicists. However the famous experiment of Michelson & Morlay hasn't measured any difference of speed. Because of this result, physics has banished up to now any existence of ether.

Relativity has then considered a materialistic approach of phenomena in a pure empty vacuum. In that case any frame, whatever its mass or motion, represents a reference in which every speed can relatively refer. Pursuing its logics, Relativity claimed that the speed of light is a universal constant and thought of the curvature of space-time to explain gravity.

With nowadays official Physics, every references are then equivalent. Both Buddha observe the same speed of light.
That equivalence is certain when only speeds are considered, but how explaining that inertia is neither symmetric nor relative?
