Relativity of Information

One may view relativity as the idea that all information is measured from a starting point with a measuring instrument and transfered to others by some wave motion having a limiting velocity. If one looks at the Lorenz transfer equations used in Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity in this way, it can be seen that the constant “c” is the limiting velocity of information/energy transfer in one particular “perceptual universe.”

For our purposes, we are saying a “Perceptual universe” is any one on a limitless number of frames of reference which are defined by the speed of information transfer. Looked at in this way, the entire special relativity theory really deals with the distortion of information with the relative motion of members of a transmitter/receiver pair.

Following up on this, it can be seen that the idea that “nothing can move faster than light” should be modified to “in our perceptual universe we appear to be unable to transfer information or energy faster than light.” As two independently moving particles have no restrictions on their motions, there can be no limit on their instantaneous relative velocities; hence, the idea of the speed of light being a limit to intantaeous relative particle velocites can be seen to be a fallacy.

Since instantaneous velocity and instantaneous acceleration are independent, there is no apparent reason that a moving body containing an internal means of acceleration could not attain any desired velocity along a predetermined vector.

One can also note that the “Clock paradox” can be shown to be a fallacy if one postulates a third observer whose motion is correlated with the receiver/transmitter pair under consideration as to be always at the midpoint of the instantaneous vector connecting the two.

There are many ideas that could be explored if we look on the basis of Einstein’s work as dealing with information about reality rather than being some sort of a valid description thereof.
