I am not the one confusing theories here.
This is impossible mis-communication (or intentional distortion by D.C.)
D.C. clarified that he invented "OGVT" as "old guy vacuum theory." That space is empty volume is the "vacuum" part. Stuff exists and moves in space. That takes "time." Time is not a fourth dimension. It just passes... Earth goes around the Sun... cesium atoms have a very precise and regular oscillation in atomic clocks.
I have never accepted 4D spacetime. Quite the opposite, as is evident above and in all my posts. How can I communicate with someone who presents my argument as the opposite of what I am saying? (Rhetorical. I can't.)
"Btw and finally, I find your mock post of my position, signed "O.G." very offensive, as follows:"
QuoteMy intention was not to mock you in any way - I'm trying to help you state your position clearly so that it's possible for people to work out what you're on about.How condescending and arrogant! I have stated my position clearly and thoughtfully, expressed as "my position" in my own words.

I am "on about" the difference between apparent and actual contraction of physical objects. Not only do I not need your "help" for that, your "help" is just your own agenda ignoring, getting it wrong, and totally distorting what I am actually saying.
I showed how off your mock quote was, but you didn't even acknowledge how i corrected your misrepresentation of my position.
I can't get any help here for this kind of abuse, so I ask you again personally to quit this barrage of misinformation about my position... and express yourself in your own threads.
Agnes: And you, start over. I want everything in one bag.Pimple Faced Kid: Yes, ma'am!Agnes: But I don't want the bag to be heavy.Pimple Faced Kid: I don't think that's possible!Agnes: What are you, the possible police? Just do it!
"Time dilation" is a misnomer (time is not an entity) for the observed fact that physical processes (like the ticking of clocks) slow down when they travel at higher velocities. Muons enter Earth's atmosphere at very high speed, so thier rate of decay is slowed down accordingly. Therefore they "live longer" and travel further than would be expected at a slower (edit: higher) rate of decay.
