Simple but Critical Flaws in 20th Century "Modern Physics" and some Benefits of their Correction

Lorentz and Einstein correctly predicted length contraction or dilation that is observed with relative motion.  BUT, those lengths were the path lengths of light travel over a physical length -- not the physical length itself.  Such physical lengths never change lengths when viewed in relative motion.  It?s the light path length which changes when measured by moving observers.  If we assume the speed of light relative to its source on that physical length is a constant c, the light speed c? measured by an observer moving at velocity v relative to that source really does change by the simple equation  c ?= c +/-v .  This simple but critical flaw in assumptions invalidates special relativity (SRT).  That flaw, in turn, has retarded theoretical physics research for a century.  When that error is corrected, some additional consequences are:

a) It is confirmed that physical lengths never change with velocity.

b) Special Relativity (SRT) and its presumed contraction of a physical length with speed can thus be rejected.

c) The elapsed time of a single light over a single fixed length is shown to be constant regardless of the observer?s relative speed.  So, special relativity?s time dilation concepts can also be rejected.  That?s now recognized by most astronomers who use Universal Time (i.e., constant passage of time throughout the universe) because that gives them greater accuracy than any other known concept. 

d) The unchanging elapsed time of light travel over any specific length is the reason why Michelson-Morley experiment (MMX)  never produced expected results; MMX was based on expected changes in the elapsed time of travel which do not happen.

e) One flawed conclusion in Special Relativity was that objects cannot exceed light speed c .  When the above flaw is rejected, it is seen that there is no known limit to the speed of objects such as particles in space.  The knowledge of that will encourage research into possibly important influence and nature of super-luminal speed particles. For instance, cosmic rays and gamma ray bursts (GRB) may not be radiation (which travels at constant speed c) but rather tiny particles which can be at much higher speeds than c.  Better research into that may now be possible, perhaps with benefits in human health and non-fossil-fuel energy availability on Earth, as discussed in my third paper.
