Lorentz Transformation Dilemma
My issue with special relativity is mathematical. The Lorentz Transformation produces a completely degenerate solution by simply rearranging a standard derivation of it. This means that an equation A x^2 + B xt + C t^2 = 0 is obtained where A = B = C = 0 assuming a constant speed of light, standard linear relations between x’, t’, x, and t, and a spherical wave. The left-hand side of the equation always equals zero regardless of the values of x and t.
