Contradictory time dilation equations.

That distance isn't 0.8 light seconds for John.

Again, you are confusing the two frames of reference.

Sally is moving to the right at 0.6c the leftward movement of the light is 0.6c so that means that John doesn't see the light move right or left but from the floor to ceiling a distance of 0.8 light-seconds.
Do I have to keep repeating myself because you are mentally deficient?

You have to keep repeating yourself because you are wrong.Your math is leading to contradictions. You admit this yourself. This should be enough for you to admit that you are doing something wrong. Instead you have decided that your mistake means other people (including people who actually undery what they are talking about are mentally deficient.

1. Length in one frame of reference is not the same as it is for another frame. This fact is pretty basic.

2. You are the one arriving at basic contradiction is your mathemarics. I don't have this problem.

For anyone still reading who is interested in the science. These "time dialation equations" that are giving Fruity such difficulties aren't a proof of anything. They were a thought experiment used to develop a hypothesis. Fruity is wrong in his math, but he is also wrong in what the time dialation function means.

The function is

T1 = T0 √(1 - v^2/c^2)

Where T0 is time elapsed in the stationary frame, T1 is the time elapsed in the moving frame. And v is the velocity of the moving frame relative to the stationary frame.

The reason we know this correct is that we use this equation to make predictons that we can the confirm by experiment. Physicists accept time dialation because they confirmed it experimentally in multiple ways.

Fruity's problems with his contradictory logic don't change that.
