The important part was: "That means the final part has to be used as the mechanism for length contraction, dictating the shapes of particles in the same way it dictates the shapes of orbits." If you want a simulation to explain the cause length contraction, it has to include the mechanism of length contraction and not simply apply a length-contraction formula to generate it. The whole point is that you would need to provide correct length contraction without a formula for it, making it appear out of other mechanisms that are already accepted in physics.
Happy new year everybody!
I corrected the link and changed the display. I hope its ok for you now. I tried it on three browsers (edge, chrome and firefox) and it looks fine.
How are you going to get the cycle times to increase for higher speeds of travel when you have them going down instead?
The wiki article is misleading. It says...It would assume that more matter is needed that what is present however, dark matter particles is not the only theory that is capable of explaining the strange phenomenon. I
As we can see, with this kind of steps, the time light takes between two horizontal particles contracts with speed instead of dilating, but for a light clock at our scale, the story is different. The light exchanged between two mirrors is not strong enough to bond them, so they cannot move by steps, but their atoms still could. With that kind of steps, time would at the same time be dilating at our scale and contracting at the scale of particles.
It might take a simulation to be sure though, so if you think it's worth it, I'll make one.
I let the particles make instantaneous steps on the screen only because it is easier to see the steps this way, and also because it is a lot easier to program, but in reality, those steps should have a sinusoidal shape driven by the components' steps: they should start at zero speed, increase to a top speed in the middle, and get back to zero speed at the end. I could have given them a mean speed instead of a sinusoidal one, but we wouldn't have seen them anymore.
How is your programming software going? Is it close to be operational? When will we be able to give you some feedback about it? Aren't you anxious to get some?
