Imatfaal,The statement that intrigues me most is;- "The redshifting/slow ticking is not solely an artifact of the time dilation."I am interested in why you believe this to be so?
Simplified,Do I take it you mean that length contraction cannot explain the difference in clock hand rotations, whereas time dilation can?If so, then I agree. The implication from this idea is that time dilation must be real as well as relative, because it has a real and permanent effect from one frame to another, whereas length contraction cannot be real because this does not have a permanent effect from one frame to another. Length contraction is therefore purely relative, an illusion.Are we beginning to think the same?
