This video reviews Special Relativity from the bottom-up viewpoint, in the spirit of John Bell.
- We start with the three phenomena – length contraction, time dilation, clock desynchronization – and then derive that c is measured to be constant, and that you cannot tell which frame is at absolute rest.
- We look at a breather (non-linear, localized wave) as a particle model.
- Finally, we study a spinning ring.
After this, any confusion around paradoxes should melt away.
