This paper introduces a new theory called, "the theory of absolutivity", which challenges the two postulates of the special theory of relativity (special relativity). This paper analyzes how special relativity derives the time dilation, and then explains how it leads to a disagreement on the first postulate: the principle of relativity. Next, this paper continues to explain a disagreement on the second postulate: the universal speed of light. Furthermore, the paper written by Gjurchinovski on the reflection of light from a uniformly moving mirror is interpreted to give a classical explanation for the null result of Michelson-Morley experiment, by justifying Lorentz contraction of length without referring to special relativity.
