Can someone please tell me if my suggested treatment of the Planck blackbody data is misconceived or not...

The blackbody spectrum is a continuum, not a line spectrum, by definition.h was never a "fudge factor" but a necessary dimensioned constant required to relate frequency to energy. The value of h depends on your units of measurement (imperial, metric, avoirdupois...) but its dimensions do not.

2) If all of the busybodies meet at the pub at sunset, each will have aged by a different amount. Everyone will agree that the sun has indeed set; they just won't agree about the elapsed time since sunrise.

Number 2: Yes - precisely, which suggests that time dilation for mass is a physical reaction caused by the conditions of the local, and that this time dilation that is affecting mass is not related to the sequential events of the local.Correct?
