Since we now know that any hypothesisfor the contraction of matter in the direction of velocity is completely and meaningless (Chapter 15),that the Lorentz transformation equations are completely and empirically invalid (Chapters 16 and 27), that theconcepts of Length Contraction and Time Dilation are completely and physically meaningless(Chapters 26 and 28), and that Einstein’s relativity postulate and his conceptof co-variance are andempirically invalid (Chapters 23, 24, 27 and 28), thus so must Spacetime andits world postulate suffer the same fate (because they are premised upon andtotally consistent with the above relativistic concepts).
