Consider three frames labeled A, B and C containing objects a, b and c respectively. If we set our frame of observation to be A we can then define the motions of B and C. observations from A show that C is moving away with a constant velocity and B is maintaining an equal distance between both in straight line. Now we can determine that time dilation must be greater than that in A for both B and C. However, the inverse must also be considered possible if we take our observation point to be frame C. In both these situations the value of time dilation in A and B cannot be equal. If we now consider B to be our observation frame then the values in A and C MUST be equal. To state that this is because all things are relative misses the point. The absolute values of time dilation may be impossible for us to determine but that doesn't mean they do not exist. Opinions?
