Pig Head Award (memorial 5):
The speed of light c doesn’t change (frame invariable) is a basic principle of Einstein’s SR. Some guys call it one “postulate”.
Next, piggy has a try to prove theoretically why the light of speed c doesn’t change / has to be a frame invariable.
Touchy: c is speed of light , γ is the frequency of light, λ is the wave length of light. Then: c = γλ
Feely: as piggy said in the physics thread, the frequency reflects time. And wave length reflects 3D space. So, actually, the equation c = γλ above reflects the integrity of space – time. Space and time are not entirely independent variables but mutually affected.
Transform the above equation: γ = c / λ
Because speed of light c is a constant, then: γ ∝ 1 / λ
Replace variables: △t ∝ 1 / L
This could be called the Space – Time equation. Piggy employed such special format to highlight the “inverse proportion relationship” between space L and time△t (criterion of time or say unit time). If space L contracts, then, time △t inflates; if space L inflates, then, time△t deflates.
Next, watch it in another relatively moving inertial frame: c’ = γ’λ’. If the speed of light (magnitude) c’ changes, we can’t guarantee the strict establishment of the “inverse proportion relationship” γ’ ∝ 1 / λ’, namely, △t’ ∝ 1 / L’ in math. Among γ’ and λ’ ,or say, △t’ and L’, one might be a constant. Then, such odd situation might appear: If space L’ contracts, time △t’ doesn’t inflate; if space L’ inflates, then, time△t’ doesn’t deflate.
But one of the basic principles of SR is "physics rule is equivalent" in different inertial frames. It’s a problem.
Now in the new era of PRESENCE – PROPERTY, we can analyze it from another angle.
Piggy considers “integrity of space – time” which reflected by the equation △t ∝ 1 / L is a fundamental natural relation, which is the affair of the fundamental PRESENCE – PROPERTY natural system.
Such fundamental natural relation is inherent property of matter and the most basic natural rule and should not change following movement. It’s the affair in the fundamental PRESENCE – PROPERTY natural system. It’s also a problem here.
So, theoretically, the speed of light (magnitude) c’ must not change, it has to be a frame invariable, namely, c’ = c.
Velocity vs space – time, touchy and feely:
Actually, the velocity of light (c = γλ) is in the supreme position and in CONTROL of space – time (frequency γ reflects time while wavelength λ reflects space). The conception of velocity is based on space – time, but the velocity of light c is not subjected to the CONTROL of them.
This “postulate” has been verified by experiment:
A moving meson decayed and released a photon, the devices detected the speed of light (magnitude) didn’t change.
(For details please see relevant chapters in the physics thread.)
But regrettable, Einstein is gone. To memorialize that great Sapiens and to praise his innovative effort in scientific research, piggy hereby decides to posthumously provide Albert Einstein the Piggy Head Award.

Perhaps piggy has to accept the First Limitation claimed by the First Logic (the First Order) to do a security guard in the Jiangmen city. Unfortunately, piggy is old and is in bad health (due to the cruel and all around dark sanction of the First Order for so many years), piggy even is not able to secure his own old bones. That means piggy die hard logically.
Nonetheless, today piggy, an alive dead man of the Jiangmen city can still PRESENCE in this world and do something meaningful in science as well as meaningful in piggy’s own life too. Piggy feels very glory.
Thanks G*. Thanks a2k. Thanks America.
