In 1905, Einstein realized that Lorentz transformations were not artificial presentations of the local space and time of electromagnetic systems, but were fundamentally linked to our very understanding of space-time. While the principle of relativity as expressed by the Lorentz factor is still believed to be of purely theoretical character, the constant speed of light c is a well-established fact.
In the first step, Einstein refuted the principle of simultaneity inherited from classical mechanics and substituted it with the principle of relative simultaneity. This “new“ insight was a delayed discovery. Since Galilei, who first discovered and measured gravitation and thus founded modern physics, it took more than three centuries to realize this simple fact, although the relativity of space (position) and time has been a central theme of philosophy since antiquity.
The principle of relativity is a consequence of the properties of space-time. As space-time is closed, we can arbitrarily select any system as a system of reference and compare any other system to it according to the principle of circular argument. This is how the SI system and its units were introduced in physics, however without understanding this fundamental theoretical fact.
This means that there is no “absolute space” and “time”, as Newton introduced in classical mechanics, but only specific magnitudes (relationships) of the two constituents of space-time = energy for each system and level. This is a consequence of the inhomogeneity (discreteness) as another fundamental property of space-time (see Axiomatics).
The principle of simultaneity reflects the open character of the systems of space-time as U-sets – any local interaction is part of the total energy exchange in the universe (= primary term). In the Axiomatics I have proved that all systems of All-That-Is are U-sets and contain themselves and the Whole as an element. The principle of simultaneity is thus an intuitive, albeit unprocessed, notion in physics that space-time is a unity which is the cognitive foundation in the new Theory of Science of the Universal Law. It proves that all known particular physical laws are derivations and manifestations of one law of nature.
Therefore, it is not a coincidence that when Einstein discovered this principle in physics, all avantgarde movements in Europe were discovering the principle of “simultanéité” in arts and poetry (see volume IV). Today, we speak of globalization and regard the earth as a village. Tomorrow, if we survive, we shall expand this feeling to the universe by implementing the theory of the Universal Law. This is the anticipated evolution of human consciousness, before it becomes an active part of the universal consciousness of space-time (1)
