"the beams move diagonally" is about the motion, and not about the
alignment. Thus that disagreement is about semantics!

Quote:

It's your claim that they 'move' at sqrt(c*2+v^2). If you want to make it a
paradox in SRT, you have to make it plausible that according to SRT "they
'move' at sqrt(c*2+v^2)." I don't think that you did that.

You should try to get over that and rewrite your wrongram until it's a

Real orbits have pitch. You can't take it out to mask h-aether, that's very

Whether you like it or not P(h)D, vertical light beams remain vertical
in
all frames.

Nice dynamic demos, indeed much clearer than words. But I haven't discovered
what you claim to be a paradox.
It would be worthwhile if you calculate and demonstrate what happens
according to SRT. If you do it well, you should see that it works fine, and
it will end up as a nice SRT demo. If it doesn't work out, post a message
and ask what the error is. In any case it will be useful!

Funny Babylonian speech confusion: the two of you mean entirely different
things. Which makes that conversation nonsense, but not the statements.
Not physics is dead, but communication is! ;-)

You haven't heard about Wombat Wilson's Wobbly Wedge-on Wedge-shaped
Willusionary Worbits, I can tell.

Usually the sponsored links have some discernable relationship to the

Why "memory" in this case?

"After some time"?

It is true that a large part of physics has been in the doldrums for 100
years
after being sidetracked by the obvious myth that vertical light beams
become
diagonal ones in moving frames.
The claim that 'light speed is always 'c' irrespective of the source
speed' is
totally meaningless and a most unscientific statement

"unscientific statement"
This from a fella that says that training in the scientific method is a
waste of time, that true scientists are not trained but proceed to
singular contributions with only the gift of their "scientific mind",
that experiments are to be done only after an act of "scientific
creation" and at the hands of trained idiots, and that experimental
confirmation is not required in science if a logical argument is
available.

Whether you like it or not P(h)D, vertical light beams remain vertical in
all
frames.
