Abstract

The principle of absolute simultaneity is proposed. A new derivation of the Lorentz transformations is given, by only using a constant roundtrip velocity of light. A preferred frame is predicted and examples are given for a better understanding of the theory, including a visual derivation. It is compatible with quantum mechanics and allows us to formulate a consistent quantum theory of gravity.

Abstract

The principle of absolute simultaneity is proposed. A new derivation of the Lorentz transformations is given,

by only using a constant roundtrip velocity of light. A preferred frame is predicted and examples are given for

a better understanding of the theory, including a visual derivation. It is compatible with quantum mechanics

and allows us to formulate a consistent quantum theory of gravity. Also new definitions for length, energy

and momentum are proposed, and that anti-matter has negative mass. It is predicted that anti-matter has

anti-gravitational properties, and that anti-matter is the "dark energy" in the universe.
