Solution to Einstein Equation

Here again, R = ct and GM = tc^3 form a solution to the field equation of gravitation, the Einstein equation:


Things they don't tell you in school: Einstein didn't give it the name "relativity" and was not completely happy with that name. The relativity that is taught today is far different from what old Albert wrote down. Since to many people relativity means a fixed speed of light, perhaps we need a better name. How about "Einstein theory?"

Hi Louise

It seems that most theoretical physicists think that Einstein was an idiot and that they know better. You need to write down 200 pages of specialised jargon before they will think about what you are saying.

HI Kea: The epicycles no doubt required many pages of specialised calculations, to maintain their proponents' elite place in society. We're making progress when we can sustain a whole thread at Asymptotia (better than getting deleted).
